...I just left without giving notice. I meant to, really, but departures are not my strong side. Theoretically I know I'm leaving. Practically I'm never packed and ready to go when it's time. So let's not even talk about telling anyone on my blog.
What's that ? They do have Internet in Germany ? Well gee, are you sure ? Would you like to hear one of my (many) good excuses for not using it to tell you about my vacation (the cat ate it. The bus was too late. It fell into the garden pond...) ?
But there were actually many good excuses for not using the Internet. As many as there were good friends to visit and babies to look and wonder at.
Hannah is my sister's goddaughter and namesake (in my mother's arms).
Jakob, my godson. With Lena, one of my two best friends.
You've already seen Jakob's shirt here. The pocket looks like decoration only when you don't fill the shirt with a baby, but it does have it's uses when you need to stow away grass and bits of wood you'd like to eat and your mother doesn't consider acceptable nourishment.
