Marie, I hope Sven is having a succesful trip.
What kind of company does he work for? Or is it his own company?
No, it isn´t his own company, luckily...
He works for a company that makes pumps for transporting water from for example mines, subways and big buildningsights (roads for example).They did deliver the huge pumps that they used to pump water into the boat in the movie Titanic. They have recently been sold to a big company in Switzerland called Sulzer. Well, Sven is the Works Manager there which means that he is in charge of getting all the machines they use to work, and he also helps developing new pumps. I think the companies the visited makes things in solid iron - things that need to be molded (gjutna).
I´m sure the party will be ok Anna! Max turned out just fine, and we had the same lack of time and preparation as you. Here is some last minute tips for you to get an easy way out...
- buy ready made cupcakes and make crema cheeze topping and put on.
- make a easy meringue cake - buy ready made meringue and put it in whipped cream, chocolate souse (ohoj) between.
- buy a big box of different icecream and make an easy ice cream stand in the doorway.
- an easy game - take two similar big toy cars. Tie a sting in each of them and then tie one end to a stick. Let the kids race against each other buy rolling up the string on the stick so that the car moves forward. They must have both hands on the stick and roll it with the fingers.
- take different things from your home, like buckets, logs, shoes etc and let them in two teams build a pyramid out of it. Limited time the one who makes the highest one that stands for more than 45 sek wins.
