One Of Those Days and Surprises From Germany

Except for Monday, it had been one of those days… all week long. At the moment, I’m taking a forced break from baking more Christmas biscuits.

Last weekend one of my dogs started limping again. Since about two years this happens now and then. It might have to do with his age a little but I think it is more likely due to the recent drop of temperature and the wet weather. Those of you who have pets know how hard it is to watch them being in discomfort. (Yes, no worries, I have taken him to the vet and he is now on medication.)

What happened Monday? Remember what I have said in my post Advantages Of Online Shopping?

There are things we would love to have, we sort of miss, things that remind us of Germany – things that we order online and receive by post. 

Well, Monday we received another surprise parcel from Germany. No, not an order but something my sister-in-law bought for us and sent over. What a treat!

This was the second parcel from Germany within a short period of time. A little while ago my mother-in-law had sent us a parcel filled with Nippons (yummy rice cakes covered with milk chocolate), a baking dish and a couple of other things.

How did that feel? It was so exciting and felt a little bit like Christmas🎄had already arrived.
