For my special day

I invite everyone to a wonderful piece of strawberry cake and a coffee or tea with it.

That is how we celebrate birthdays in Gemany!

My new lodger

Standard

Since I have redone my bedroom with new furniture and pictures, I needed something to complete it.

So….

I have a new lodger in my flat and he is well loved already.

May I introduce

Danny

He came to me to work yesterday and I took him home straight away.

Some of you might recognise him, as he is related to Manny from Marsha’s blog. He has the same ancestors.

Of course he had to check his new room out straight away and sat on different furniture.

We are getting to know each other at the moment and I am sure it will develop in a wonderful friendship!

bear4

So far we had a lovely day together and enjoyed each others company! He loves blogging too and will give me some advice, and probably do a post by himself one day !

He loves lots of hugs,

always listens,

is very loving,

is very cuddly

never makes  a mess,

and is so cute!

A big Welcome to Danny!

A lazy day!

My photo for the day for your enjoyment.

As I have a nasty cold and cough,

I thought it is time to relax.

Not doing much just like my cat does all day.

We sometimes forget to slow down,

We don’t always have to rush around.

Take time and enjoy the slower pace today!

Wishing you a relaxing day today ,

smile,

be kind,

spread some joy,

and do something quietly awesome!

Celebrating…

Standard

It is always great to celebrate!

Today I am celebrating that I have managed one month without burning any dinners.

What an achievement…… for me that is……! 🙂

So I opened a little bottle of champagne and shared it with another blogger, virtually, who is always kind enough to give me encouragement and new ideas and recipes.

Cheers Knut!  and thank you!

Little embarrasing footnote:

We had quite a bit of take aways and the pizza delivery service knows the way to my house by heart …..

Still, one month, I think certainly worth celebrating!

A great day out!

Standard

We had a sunny, warm day!

So London here I come!

I met friends and after a wonderful lunch by the River Thames we went to the cable car.

Yes, London has no mountains but a cable car. 

It goes over the Thames and in the sunshine we had a lovely view.

You can see the Dome, the River Thames and a lot further.

Afterwards I had tea with my friends in their back garden in the sunshine.

Friends are so valuable.

Never forget how priceless they are,

they are with you in need,

they are with you to laugh

they are always there for you.

Be thankful !

“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”

I am thanking all my friends for being there for me, always!

Have an awesome day!
