Yes… I’ve bought my first Christmas tree. Never, ever had one before while living on my own (and this is the second extended period of alone-living I’m in in the last 20 years). But there’s actually space in the living room now for a five-footer, standing on a small table, with the lights built-in. Now, if only I had some decorations…
Handy things, cellars, for sweeping away things in a pretend tidy-up.
Back now from my nephew’s christening (well, one of the nephews, anyway).
My DIY skills are pretty good, it’s the measuring, cutting and drilling I have trouble with.
… that my grown-up life really started.
Well, it’s the European Day of Languages today, so…
Happy European Day of Languages!
Glücklicher europäischer Tag von Sprachen!
¡Día europeo feliz de idiomas!
Jour européen heureux des langues!
Giorno europeo felice delle lingue!
Dia europeu feliz das línguas!
سعيد اليوم من اللغات الاوروبيه.

I do like this hotel but it does have its quirks.
