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!

Danny’s Holidays Part Drei

Standard

Another day we went sailing….. to China… to get some tea.

…..not really….

… we visited an English tea clipper the Cutty Sark from 1869.

I think my mum did already mention it in a blog post before but now we went inside this big Sailing ship.

It was amazing!

There were Tea chests, many ropes, and I had so much fun exploring the ship!

We could also walk underneath the ship, as it is all newly restored….. that was a view!

Definitely worth a visit!

When you come to London, I can take you there!

 

While we are talking ships….. my mum wanted to put more pictures from the second day of the festival on…. she did have more fun and more fireworks. She enjoyed it so much !

Enjoy!

 

My Birthday

As it is my birthday today, I had the idea of following RoSy’s idea and jot things down which I love and come to my mind right now.

Well I am not a teenager anymore and it is hard to think of 53 things so I went for 13 things as it is my birthdate.

Here we are!

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 !

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

Have an awesome day!
