First aid training is an important part of the essentials we need to be able to do. With only a little training we will be able to save people's lives. It takes so little for us to save another mans life. The first aid training give us the tools we need when to save a life. I need to admit that I do not master a first aid other than the few basics. Fortunately, I have never been in need of it, but it does not mean that I should not know how to do. I believe that if you need to help, in a stressful situation, you can. I think it will surprise many what we as a human can in stressful situations. In recent years in Denmark it has become more common that children learn about first aid in school, which is good because children learn 'easier' and if they know how to provide first aid from the start, they will never forget it. A little bit like learning how to ride a bike. As patron of the Heart Association (Hjerteforeningen) it is obvious for Mary to support learn about first aid when they go to school. And that was what she did a few days ago at Randersgade School in Copenhagen. With happy kids everywhere Mary arrived to Randersgade School. She was welcomed by all the children that was handing gifts to her. All this made her laugh because all of them wanted her attention. Inside the schools gym hall she attended a first aid class where the kids were taught how to handle first aid when needed. As always Mary was on the floor along with the kids talking and listening to them about the importance of first aid training. On red mats kids from the school showed what they have learned on, pretty realistic, plastic dolls. As member of the Danish Home Guard Mary has also learned about first aid and how to do. This was a part of the education before becoming a member. So of course Mary was ready to show a few tricks! Despite the fact that it was something important subject, Mary also had time to laugh and have a good time with the kids. An hour later she visited a cardiac exercise group on a Preventions Centre in City of Copenhagen where she met some of those who have a heart disease. They told about how they have been able to deal with their illness and how they try to improve their health. Her last event on November 21st was attending the Heart Association Scholarship award 2013 at Betty Nansen Theatre.
We are in late November and the weather in Denmark it's pretty cold already which means we need to wear all the warm clothes we can. Often Mary have one visit per day on a hour or so. A combination of this means only warm clothes. With a pair of long black trousers and her old Prada jacket featuring sequin details she rocked a everyday look. I think she was wearing something woolen underneath the jacket because as far as I know it's not that warm. The most common is for her to wear ankle boots with such trousers and to me it looks like a pair of her Prada ankle boots but I can't say for sure. At the arrival I spotted a large scarf, her Carlend Copenhagen clutch and a Shamballa Jewels bracelet. The beautiful and feminine Ole Lynggaard earrings/rings makes me happy every single time she wears them. True everyday glamour! With these jewellery she showed that just a few pieces of jewellery make the difference.
