Moin moin meine Lieben!
Here’s the latest instalment of my #100happydays challenge. Not long to go now!
I was home for a weekend for the first time since Christmas, and on the Saturday evening was a belated celebration for Hannah’s 21st. Love these girls.
And of course, it was Mothering Sunday while I was back in the Shire! Here I am with my beautiful Mummy at The Duke of Cambridge, Tilford, Farnham. (They do butterscotch cheesecake. I still haven’t quite recovered from it.)
Back in HH after a wonderful weekend seeing all the fam!
It felt like spring had finally sprung here im Norden!
Continuing the good run of weather (it wasn’t to last) I met up with Ellie and we had a catch up at the Alster Pavilion (Alex) right by the water.
Planning! Wanderlust, you are an expensive weakness.
Around this time I also made a map of all the places I’ve been (in blue) and all the places I want to go (in red). There’s a lot of work to be done!
This was possibly the worst day to head to Blankenese for the first time, as it was raining cats, dogs and various other animals. It’s a gorgeous little corner of Hamburg. I know now why they call a certain area the Treppenviertel (Stair/Step Quarter). Feel the burn.
I was feeling inspired on this rainy day to try and sort my summer… #moretraveltweets
Met up with Emily, Ellie and Michael for brunch at Schweinske in Altona. Want a cooked breakfast? Then head to one of Hamburg’s many, many Schweinskes, you won’t regret it.
I had a fairly normal start to the day, and then I wrote and published my last blog post, ‘Why is ‘no’ not enough?’. The response was massive (viewing figures up 4,000% on the previous few weeks!), and I’m so grateful to everyone for their support and the feedback that the problems I wrote about aren’t exclusive to me or where I live- it’s always good to know!
I also did a little drawing while all the blog madness was occurring!
Unfinished, but inspired by some of the…’creations’ seen at Aintree last week.
