Ralph - Your snow queen is very beautiful - reminds me of the Russian Snow Maiden that accompanies Father Frost. :D

Chris, Ludmila, Annemarie - Hot drinks? Cold drinks? Soft drinks? Long drinks? Strong drinks? Uncle Sergej has them all! :D

I am at the bar for a drink !

RALPH - Schneekoenigin ist huebsch mit ihrem Eisbaeren.
Kennst Du das Maerchen von Hans Christian Andersen :)

PATRICIA - ich hoffe, es geht dir bald besser ! :)

MERVI - our boys played well against Netherlands.
Handball is not one of my favorite sports, but if there
is an international tournament, I watch the matches. :D

My visit to London on Tuesday to see an old friend went very well. She had found a very interesting Toy Shop that specialised in Dolls House furniture but also had lots of interesting old toys. Needless to say I added Polar Bears to my collection.


This snow globe based on the Norwegian story, made into a film, about the Polar Bear King who is released from a witches spell by a beautiful princess. In my case my beautiful princess would be a very old white furry lady.

The events in Australia are a nightmare. As a Brit I feel especially close to the country as I have met many Australians over the years.

I am in the main Library in Oxford and will raise a glass with Uncle Sergei to all those in peril, both human and animal

Chris - It's heart breaking to see what has happened and is happening in Australia. At the same time it's heart warming to see how people are taking care of injured and orphaned animals. - I don't care so much about handboll so I never follow it. One of the few sports I don't follow. :D

Patricia - I hope you'll feel better tomorrow. Sometimes the vaccinations make us feel very sick. Ironic or is it .... :D

Hello Dear All,
Mervi, flooding in the kitchen is a nightmare. Glad to read that the problem now in under control, but I hope that soon all is solved and working properly again.
Milana's baby is so cute.
Yeo, ah well, you will have to go earlier than foreseen, but the advantage is that all will over over sooner as well.
Here in Everbeek, it was again a dull rainy grey day.
Today, I was not feeling well and I think that it is because of the Prevenar vaccin I got yesterday. Hope that I will be better tomorrow and that the weekend is better.
And now, I really have to go to KWM (because there is a lot to read).
Wishing you all a quiet evening.

MERVI - I hope, the problem will be fixed soon !

KNUTI JUDI - do you have contact with Sarsam?

I had a perfect timing with my bike tour today:
started after the rain, and as I returned home,
the rain came back - now pooring rain again.!

MERVI - the Handball tournament starts today.
Sweden, Norway and Austria - what a joke !?
The boys have to fly a lot between the :roll:
different countries, thats the new mode...
Why not Finnland ??? ;)

We're still waiting but luckily the problem in the kitchen is under control. After all the holidays the plumbers are very busy .....

Chris - What nice Winter guests!

Britta-Gudrun - I'm glad to hear your hand is at least a little better. Let it rest as much as possible.

Yeo - Sometimes the hospitals are faster than we imagine.

Annemarie, Ludmila, Knuti-Judi - Welcome to the afternoon tea or coffee!

Hello dear all!

@ Mervi
I Hope, that the flooting is finish soon and that the damage is not so great. I will keep crossed the fingers for you!

@ Dumba
Ich freue mich, dass es dir wieder besser geht.

@ Annemarie
Ich hoffe, dass es dir auch bald wieder besser geht.

Nun hatte ich mich auf die Operation am 20. 1. vorbereitet.
Heute morgen bekam ich einen Anruf vom Krankenhaus, dass ich nun schon am kommenden Donnerstag operiert werde!
Ich habe noch so viel zu tun und stehe jetzt vollkommen neben mir. So schnell kann sich alles ändern. :(

Mervi: Wasserschaden in der Kueche ist ein Traum - ein Alptraum. Das wird hoffentlich schnell repariert.

Britta-Gudrun: Lass es heute langsam angehen.

Guten Tag!
Mervi, eine Ueberschwemmung von der Wasch-oder Spuelmaschine ist der Horror,
hoffentlich kann der Schaden schnell behoben werden. Wir wollten doch einen gemuetlichen Jahresanfang!

Die Schmerzen an der Hand haben sich etwas reduziert, aber Autofahren kann ich damit noch nicht, dafuer wieder etwas besser schreiben.
Milana Baerchen ist niedlich und schon sooo gross!

Good morning! Guten Morgen!

We have a 'flooding' in our kitchen and we're waiting for a company to come and fix it. Hopefully it won't take too long but the waiting is unBEARable!

Ludmila - Thank you for the second report from Warsaw! The zoo has lots of adorable animals and many of them seem to have nice enclosures, too.

Annemarie - I hope your hand is better today!

Britta-Gudrun - How's your hand today?

I wish everybody a pleasant TDT!
