Hello everyone from a stormy Munich. We’ve just got back from our morning swim, even though it was very windy outside. Just swam indoors most of the time. The jacuzzi is still great!
Anyway, last weekend, I celebrated my birthday. I’ve got a lovely gold bracelet from Him Indoors, pyjamas from parents-in-law, cardigan from cousin B, cards and FB greetings from families and friends. Thanks everyone!
We went to the Christkindlmarkt, first in Münchner Freiheit, the “arty” one, lots of hand-mades and sculptures in the market.
Then to Marienplatz, with the big Christmas tree in front of the town hall. We had sausages and mulled wine and looked around the stalls.
And in the evening, we went to our favourite Greek restaurant with friends N and R. Then went back to our place for a bottle of champagne and some mince pies. It was a wonderful birthday! Very grateful!
Day 13 – Christmas cards
Day 12 – Christmas tree
’tis the season to be jolly, everyone’s happy to be free
round and round the carousel goes, as long as it got heat, it glows
leche flan, a family’s recipe, too rich to resist!
roast turkey, roast potatoes, vegetables, minced pies and Christmas pudding
heard a Holy Mass on Boxing Day, the music was brilliant, like voices coming from heaven
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
Happy Boxing Day! Hope you are alright. We had a lovely Christmas Day yesterday, cosy and fun! Woke up, had breakfast, exchanged gifts, relaxed, prepared dinner (roast turkey with stuffing, roast potatoes, veggies, Christmas pudding). Watched Dr. Who, then Strictly Come Dancing. This morning, we heard mass near our place. It was amazing, with the choir, orchestra and a visiting priest from Togo.
