Orla is a lovely 4!

Just a very quick post, as I should really be packing. I had a lovely weekend with my friends in Derby. I managed to read a whole book without even trying 'Stasiland' by Anna Funder. I loved it. It's stories of the people who lived behind the Wall and either had encounters with the Stasi or worked for the Stasi. I wanted to read more. But anyway, I read, I chatted, I moaned, I ate lovely food, I drank lovely wine, and I even did a little shopping.

I got back and it was lovely to see the kids, and then I had to get busy again in time for Orla's birthday the following day. I had two cakes to bake and her presents to wrap. And her Kita party to prepare for. I stayed up until 11:30 trying to decide whether I needed to make another cake, because I wasn't sure if there would be enough to go round everybody at Kita. But luckily tiredness kicked in, and I couldn't have cared less whether there was enough. Plus, I ran out of eggs.

Oh, I forgot to mention that my return was extra hectic as Stevie decided he was ill as soon as I got back and took to his bed the moment I got through the door.

So then yesterday we celebrated Orla's birthday and all had a lovely time, and then today I've been getting ready to leave again tomorrow for Scotland. That's the quick run down. I'll be back on the 10th April. Bis gleich!


  1. Wow! I thought that I was busy.
    Safe trip.

  2. What a good day to have a birthday! I'm going to imagine that was also my cake. Oh... no, wait *does maths* that's the day BEFORE my birthday. Well, I'm still going to imagine I had that cake. I am going to look up that book... have a lovely time on the island!


You're not going to leave without saying something, are you?
