Danny’s Summer Travels

Standard

I, Danny was fortunate enough to accompany my mum and family travelling to Bavaria.

First I found great bushes to climb in my auntie’s garden

while my mum tried to shoot dinner (at a Middle Age Market in Schongau)

….. we did have salad that night…. 🙂

We enjoyed driving along the Kochelsee in beautiful sunshine,

then up a mountain

and down again to the Walchensee.

There we went with a cable car to the Herzogstand and enjoyed the hot weather in 1600m height.

It was so wonderfully warm, the view was breathtaking from the top seeing so many more mountains of the Alpes.

I was allowed to sit right by the window in the cable car so I could see better going down.

It was an amazing experience for a bear. ( just a bit hot with my fur)

I am so grateful to see so many beautiful mountains, lakes and winding roads in hot sunshine.

On our way home we stopped at a really little lake/pond with a duck family which was brilliant to cool down after a hot day.

( this little one was the slowest…. so was my mum with taking the picture…)

 

A great day out for all of us!

A civilized cup of tea!

Standard

 

I am busy getting my front room in order,

painting ,

changing furniture,

removing shelves,

pictures,

moving things about.

I have made myself a small “coffee table”

out of Pallet Wood (with wheels).

 

 

I am christening it with

my first civilized cup of tea in my front room

 

 

In style of course.

Come and enjoy it with me.

 

Changes again…

Standard

Hi there , Thomas here.

I am updating you with news from our household.

Things are constantly changing here and it is hard to keep up with it.

One minute there is furniture,

next minute an empty room,

then suddenly more boxes and

then new furniture.

Of course I am the first to try it out.

 

It got my approval, although my mum has now filled it with stuff,

so I can’t jump up anymore.

I guess that is what it is for.

I found a nice space with my friends.

The room has changed and I still find cosy places, so I am happy!

Changes can be hard

then can work out beautifully!

 

My garden changed again

Standard

My small garden needed some more care.

After the new fence was done,

I decided to have some decking down to hide a grey concrete floor.

We worked hard to get it all done.

We made it very quick really.

but now it needed rearranging….

so I moved pots, potted new plants, and changed things around.

I am happy with this now!

You can see the left side is my “Strawberry Field”

Through an inspiration from Sartenata’s Blog,

I used some old shoes to pot plants in.

Also I made a planter from an old pallet and painted it.

Now there is parsley and mint on one side and petunias on the other.

I do love my tea cups in the garden too!

 

Here is more detail in the slideshow.

Now I can invite you in my garden

for a peaceful and happy time!

Being British

Standard

Wednesday, 24th May was a special day for me.

After living in London, UK for 30 years,

I have finally become a British citizen.

On Wednesday

I attended the official ceremony in the Town Hall

and my British Citizenship started from this day.

 

I am very proud to be British as well as German now.

 

Come and enjoy a very British cup of tea with me!
