February 14th is a massive propaganda induced, money earner kind of holiday celebrated around the world. Well, at least in most country. So, I did my part to get a bit of a share from that money earning scheme using my passion for baking and one of the best tools in the world: the blog!!! ( http://partyfairiesandkamoteques.blogspot.com/2011/01/valentines-day-give-aways.html)
But as I woke up on that day, (after spending the whole night baking and wrapping...) it wasn't the way I expected it would be. There was no breakfast in bed, no roses, no hugs and kisses that morning. Instead, I was greeted by a grumpy husband and a "känkäränkä" (cranky) child.
As the day progressed, I was able to keep up the smiles as people compliment the goodies I baked and carefully wrapped in girly boxes. Though the harsh, cold weather didn't help (-20 degs C) at least it was quite busy at work that I didn't notice, it was time to go home. Little did I know, something big is waiting for me. Maybe this is what my horoscope said: "A big news will come your way"!!! haha. I admit, I do read those. Oh well, maybe.
The paper was from the immigration. The letter was in a government stationary. The note was in Finnish. "Must apply for a Finnish passport".
A day that ended on a definite high note! My Finnish citizenship was granted on the 10th of February, 2011. So lets see whats in store for me. :P
