Still at home...

Yesterday my tennisguys came home from a FANTASTIC weekend in Stockholm...
They were tired...but they had a lot of tennistalk to share... ;)
And Viktor was so pleased with the trip so he said: -I want to move to Stockholm!!!
Oh...please not yet... give mom some time to get use to that first...
And he also said...I want to be as good as the big guys...so I will keep on with my practising all the time... so do you all know what this means...
Yepp...more ball bouncing against cupbooards and doors in the house...!!! :)
Ok...is this what I have to live with...so Ok...as long as he is happy!!
Yesterdays mail was a very happy surprise...
You who follows my blog know that I had some bad experience with a shop in USA earlier this year...and I had two very lovely ladies who tried to help me to get into contact with that shop....
It was Pat and Sharon... oh they phoned and phoned and no result what ever...and today this arrived...from Sharon...
...a lovely pink parcel...
...with some of the books I tried to order... plus a little extra ...lovely little notepads...
Thankyou so much Sharon...I know you have tried and tried to find these books for me ever since...and I am truly grateful...
Do you think I was happy ???
