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!
