Aftenshow – World cup 2018
Hi there dear readers,
The past couple ofdays have been such a roller coaster! First of all.. that game on sunday! I know I was not the only one sitting on the edge of my seat! I cant start to imagine that feeling our boys on the national team must have felt, they played their hearts out and gave everything they had and sadly it still wasn?t enough! Even though I wasn?t in Russia, i felt that game as if i was there! I was up and down from the sofa, I was pacing around, hands in front of my eyes.. you name it! It was painfull having to be so far away from such a game. I wanted to be there, but duty at home calls!
I have been on the social media the past couple of days, following everything thats been said, the players posts and also because I am overfilled with proud wanting to express myself.. I know we didn’t go on to the next round, but we have such much to be proud of. We got further than expected (not me! I actually had a lot of faith, I thought they would go much further), we as a nation got brought closer together everywhere, work places, nurseries, restaurants.. even the streets were silent.. everyone was watching and routing for Denmark. I love that 11 players on a pitch can do this! Not only am I proud of our nation but I am over filled with pride for my brother! He played like a dream and it was truly amazing to see! I have been saying it all day yesterday, I hope he feels proud! He is a star and a hero for many of us out there, he gave us hope and he fought with his whole might and he did us proud! I know I am!
I went to the airport to greet Kasper and the team when they got back yesterday. It was with mixed feelings, standing there waiting and I could feel that I was not the only one who felt that way. Even though their arrival was kept quiet, there was still some fans and press who had figured it out and turned up. I didn’t quit know how to ?greet? him/them, because on one hand they sadly lost and on the other hand (Sorry for repeating myself) they did us proud and came quiet far! So I wanted to kind of celebrate them, but it didn’t feel right because they were obviously and understandably disappointed. So people kinda clapped, but then they didn’t and some greeted them with ?wuhu? or reassuring words.. it was really mixed. I just wanted to give Kasper a big hug and say welcome home, and sorry that your already home. Again, understandably you could see that many of the players just wanted to get out of the airport and go home to their families, so the tempo in the airport was quiet fast.. like ?HI?? okay were walking.. keep up kids 🙂 and as soon as we got out of the airport Kasper picked up my little girl and was goofing around with my son and it felt like he was happy to see us, it was good to see him again under the circumstances.
I was called into the ?Aftenshow? (An evening talk show in Denmark), to talk about Kasper and the our national team, now that the whole world is talking about Kasper. I was so nervous, I am not use to being on tv AT ALL! I have always hated seeing myself in pictures and in videos, so going on LIVE tv was a big step for me! But on the other hand, i really wanted to do! I wanted to show how proud I was! I think I called my husband 10 times leading up to the hours before going on, because no matter what, I know he can always reassure me and put me at ease. So I took a taxi there (Joakim was meeting me there), and the first person I met was a fallow makeup artist – Morten Kongsbak (very talented, worked with him once before). It was fun to be sitting in his chair for a change, because the funny thing is; i am normally the one doing the makeup while those that are going on TV are sitting in the chair, but rolls were reversed this time. Just to be able to sit back and relax! I am a big fan of that!
When I was finished with the glam part, I met with the host, who went though the questions with me (and after a year on maternity leave, my brain hasn?t practised the doing of ?remembering? so much, so I quickly forgot what was being asked)(Well done Cecilie – your off to a good start), but thankfully the host was very kind and helpfull throughout the interview. I stumbled quiet a lot in the start, I was lost for words and I said the wrong phases but it was so much fun and I think the audience understood what I was trying to say. ?Normally? (the few times I have been interviewed) I don?t get interviewed alone, it ?normally? with a family member – so this was so much fun to try!
I hope those of you who saw it, understood what I was trying to say and enjoyed it – I differently did!
Thank you for reading!
Have a great evening everyone <3
