Guten Tag! It's been a while.
I arrived in Germany just over a week ago to embark on the second half of my year abroad and have only just got t'internet set up after filling in a lot of forms and trying to decipher the set-up instructions. At least this connection is lightning fast unlike the one in Spain so there's no excuse for me not to post photos!
Before coming out here I spent 2 1/2 weeks in England going to a 21st in Edinburgh, an 80th round the corner, going to York , Durham and finally Bristol to find somewhere to live next year and whenever I had a spare moment I was doing something pigeon-related.
This was the latest batch (there were 3 more who went to the Rugby Club and New York) and these little chaps (and one chapette) were sent off to various places in the UK.
I've already found the wool shop in Heidelberg and it's very good and very cheap. I've just crocheted a new hat for about 60pence (photos to follow). Most exciting of all however are the bakeries. On the pre-term German course I am taking we get breakfast every morning which consists of a choice of sandwiches, pretzels, jammy or chocolate doughnuts, croissants, pain au chocolat, cheese bread, chocolate muffins...the list goes on. Mmmmmmmmmmm. This makes up for the dreadful weather. As you can see, it's a wee bit grey and I was told today that snow was forecast...
