"Ooooh, we've got new dishtowels."
" - Og en ny dug. Hvor bliver her fint!
Åh hvor jeg glæder mig til vi skal sidde her og hygge os!"
" - And a new tablecloth. This is going to look so nice!
Oh, I can't wait to sit here with pettson and "hygge!" *
(* "Hygge" is a danish word that pretty much embraces everything nice, cozy and comfortable in the world :o) It's very hard to describe, and it's a word that, as far as I know, does not exist in any other country. It kind of describes a state of mind, or atmosphere, like being surrounded by frinds, laughing, eating good food or having something to drink. Or being with loved ones christmas eve. Candles are also very often associated with "hygge" :o) I hope this explains "hygge" well enough for you guys. I tried writing "have a good time" instead of "hygge", but somehow, that just doesn't cut it, hehe)
Jeg har malet den fjerde væg, og er ved at fikse vinduerne.
I've painted the fourth wall and I am about to fix the windows.
"Now I'm ready to dry the dishes. I just need someone to wash them up first."
Jeg har ledt efter stof, som kunne ligne det, som Peddersens dug var lavet af, men det lykkedes ikke at finde det. Det endte med, at jeg tegnede røde striber på kryds og tværs, på noget hvidt stof. På den måde fik jeg lavet både viskestykker og en dug til bordet.
I've been looking for fabric I could use for Pettsons tablecloth, but I couldn't find any. I ended up drawing red stripes in a ckeckered pattern on some white fabric. I made both the tablecloth and the dishtowels this way.
