It is, to put it mildly, a very quiet in Billed Bladet this week!
There is an article devoted to how M&F and the twins are doing right now, but as it is only speculations I've decided not to write a summary.
In fact any member of this forum who has had twins, would probably be able to write something similar.
There is an article about the presents M&F have recieved so far. More on that below.
But in order to have at least something to write about, a Billed Bladet reporter happened to bump into Joachim and our Marie, going for a walk around Amalienborg before going to Lyon.
As it isn't the first time I've seen Joachim and la Marie going for a walk, when things have been quiet, I can help wondering whether this isn't just a little, tiny bit arranged.
More on that below as well.
But before I start on the summaries: I will be on holiday next week and as such I don't expect to write any summaries next week. But perhaps someone else will take over?
Summary of article in Billed Bladet #4, 2011.
Kongelige gaver til tvillingerne - Royal presents for the twins.
Written by Hanne Rask.
From the magazine itself M&F has recieved a photo album with a selection of the photos takes at Rigshospitalet.
M&F have recieved an Odder-pram for the twins, in beige this time. The company is more than happy to supply prams to the DRF. This particular model is otherwise only available in black, but Joachim and the fair Marie had one in beige for bette Henrik, and the CP-couple requested one in the same color.
The fur company, Copenhagen Fur, have presented two driving bags or whatever they are called in English. They are made of mink, labelled Palomino Cross. That should keep the twins very warm.
A toystore in Copenhagen, Prik, which sell handemade toys, have thought about Isabella. So they have presented her with a twin-lift, complete with two dolls and a hand-knitted shawl.
The store Purebaby has supplied ecological bedlinen for the twins.
And last but not least. One of the knitted blankets Elvis and Shirley were wrapped in, when they left Rigshospitalet, was knitted by 62 year old Connie Veng, from the town of Sønderborg.
Connie explains: "It was the girl, who Frederik carried and it was quite obvious, because my blanket is just a little bit smaller than the blanket which was used for Christian and Isabella".
Connie Veng obtained the (what do you call it?) recipe for the blanket in a knitting store in Gråsten. That recipe has been known since the the birth of Christian.
It was Mary's mother who knitted the blanket Christian, Isabella and Elvis was wrapped in.
Connie Veng was finished knitting the blanket in September and duly recieved a thank you note a little later.
Well, Billed Bladet just happened to meet Joachim and Marie going for a walk near Amalienborg, Saturday afternoon (at 12.45 sharp in fact). Here they were walking with bette Henrik in his beige Odder-pram.
Joachim confirmed: "The twins are wonderful".
However the reporter, Hanne Rask, appear to have been distracted. She called the four legged zoological oddity, Apple, a dog.
