After a trip to the largest Sweetie shop in Europe, in which we bought very little surprisingly, we travel into the present by crossing the border back into Finland. We went into a shopping centre called Rajalla meaning Border in Finnish. After some quick discussions, it was mutually decided we shall go to Rax, a pizza buffet place to eat. Rax is a very nice place to eat, not just pizza stuff. They had marshmallow pizza at this one two, some kind of promotion, I decided to skip this flavour as I wasn't too amazed at it when I had it last week..... it was an interesting taste but that was it. After filling my plate a few times, it was time to head back on the road towards our home.
We arrived home 2 hours later and Tanja decided to nap. I went ahead and made the dinner for Sunday as we were having Tanja's younger brothers coming round after chapel. I decided to make mince and salami cannelloni. Once I did my house wife bit but I proceeded to do the manly husband job and put together the IKEA furniture. I put up the footstool, rocking chair and one bookshelf before heading to bed.
Sunday's are Chapel days. We received a text early morning from the branch president asking us if it would be ok to announce our wedding to the congregation, which Tanja and I had no objections too. Once suited and booted for Chapel, we went to pick up Tanja's two younger brothers as their Father had gone to another Chapel as part of the District council or something. During the first part of the meeting, Markku announced that Tanja Maljanen was no more and it was now Tanja Robinson. After chapel all four of us head to the apartment and whilst I put the prepared meal in the oven, Janne and I moved about some things in the study so I could put the IKEA bookshelves in the room for my numerous books. The food hardly had time settle as it was lapped up with several rounds of fresh garlic bread. It is good to see people enjoying ones food, gives you a morale boost but also a feeling of satisfaction. After the boys left, I finished the last bookshelf and loaded them up with my books. Tanja and I took a wee nap before returning the borrowed BMW back to her older brother Ari. After watching Ice Age 3, we hit the hay.
After a night in which I had an upset stomach and sore throat which kept me up for most of it, I slept in till 11. I potted around the house doing bits and pieces of housework before heading out to meet Tanja from work. Her work colleagues had given us a card and a candle holder, that was very nice of them. After dinner of Chicken Chasseur, Brown Rice and garlic bread followed by a Nap; we printed off a new name piece for the door. We now officially have our name on the door.
