With respect to our Berlin grandson and to the family-wing living there, it is our organic need to be a bit more familiar with German too. Starting a new stage of our life we face opening opportunities to refresh our many decades old sleeping knowledge and promote our German speaking skills into our everyday practice.
Well, each of us could have a pretty rainy, wet week.
Julias' arrived following their vacation. Valentin's first teeth is outside. Sophie prepares to her trip. Rita visited Mom, Julia's phone call could catch her when Rita was just leaving. We had Skype chat on our small and less important family-matters. My cousin arrived to Mom and she let us with Katie leave to enjoy a cinema film nearby (Grand Hotel Budapest).
I took a photo at the time of our former Salisbury visit (here).
The attached shot is published in the Telegraph. It is a moment out of the heavy storm making pains for the UK: the Salisbury Cathedral with the river Avon in flood. The photo includes the path of our old walk, I guess, it includes the gate where my photo was shot. Avon in normal circumstances is a 15-20m wide river here. Seeing the report, the entire river shore is under running water now.
Shocking ... our sympathy flies to Andy and friends around Salisbury.
During the Christmas rush we had an opportunity catching our grandchildren at videophone. It is a great experience what partnership is offered by the two small kids. Both of them paid attention to our appearance on the screen.
Lara is 13 monthes old, Valentin is growing in his 4. month.
Two returns overlapped this weekend: Alex after his travel to Munnich and Stuttgart, Peter after the holiday time in Berlin with his new grandchild past - both returned to their home.
