So we went and had a stereotypical family holiday in a holiday park over the Carnival mini-break. We had a cute little house with a freestanding fireplace and two tiny bedrooms. Read more... )

I am only following the instructions:

Ask me for a letter and I'll give you one. Then you can fill out these questions on your own blog.

I was given the letter S by [ profile] frenchani - let's see how challenging this is going to be.

That word in the subject line can't be the correct adjective, but I am keeping it as it is.

My students make up words all the time (knowledgement, degrandable, crowfunding, detaily) so I want some of the neologicalizing goodness.

Under the cut, you will find pictures from our New Year's Day Walk which was a particularly short one this year because one of us was still suffering from a really nasty cold - which manifested on Christmas Eve which is that person's birthday, too. So, not a happy holiday for him.

So we went on a really really short round in the neighbourhood.

I am a mother, but not the most traditional one.

I couldn't have become one without the help of a male person.

That male person continues to be important in my life and the kid's.

He is the main caregiver for the kid.

And this is why, today, I bring you pictures of them baking a rhubarb-banana cake.

Which happened some time ago and wasn't a special Mother's Day one-time deal present.

So, you've seen the Brandenburg Gate and decided it was a lot smaller than you expected, so apart from its symbolic value when it was closed due to the city being split in half, it's irrelevant which means that you can safely ignore it on subsequent visits?

Yes, that's what I thought.

City marketing made me see the light. (Pun intended.)

Only it wasn't a Sunday, it was last Wednesday - when Germany celebrated re-unification and we drove to a small lake close to the border to the Netherlands. There was a brisk walk on comfortable paths around the privately owned lake. In its current form it was created when the local peat bogs were harvested, but the lake itself is much older. Since the 1920s it has been a popular destination for daytrippers - there is even a small motorboat that takes you across the lake if walking all around it proves too much for you. Which even a four-year old can do, with a little bit of whining, but there was a treat at the end: Probably the last time this year that we sat outside eating some ice cream.

Pictures from the walk: )

It feels like autumn now. On the bike ride to school I wear gloves and today in the lunch break I needed an umbrella to supervise the kids playing in the school yard.

This picture was taken on nearly two weeks ago, in the park near our old flat in D-village.
