Originally the idea was to have a grill or picnic in the park... But since it rained a bit on Fri, during the day, we had a small party at home. The evening was perfect!! Most of the time we were at the balcony. Thank you all for a really great time!!! Your company, presents, flowers, cake :-)

Chilled out weekend

It feels bad to update this blog only during weekends. I should probably be more politically or culturally active but I really have no time during the weekdays...
Last week there was Balett-week in HH. I REALLY wanted to go and see some of the performance but the only one I could get the tickets for, had only poor-visibility seats left. Monica and I decided to skip it and then after checking the website we noticed that we could buy the tickets for some Russian Balett for September. So we did it!!! Yuppi!!!

As some of you know I'm planning to visit Filip in China at the end of September. But again, there is a "project" - visa. Both Alex and I tried to call the Chinese consulate at least 15 times but without any success.. So after sending them email I got to know their opening times. I wrote this kind of "giving the right" letter and asked Alex to go and leave my visa application on Friday. And guess what?! After checking the date of my departure they concluded: Come back in August. WHAT?!?! Oh well, I guess I will try to fix it again in 10 days or so.

The whole weekend was relaxed and nice. I wanted to go the Miniature World - a city made of miniatures - people who saw it said it was great! But we somehow didn't make it... We were in Schanze and discovered a new restaurant, actually owned by a famous German cook. I think the service still needs improvements; the same when it comes to food. But it is a cool place. And their chocolate cake and apple pie are great!!

Today Alex left around 12, and I went with Sandra, Hans and their friend Claudia to St. Pauli for a "fischbrötchen". Mums!!! It was a very nice place, Brucken 10; interior design done by a famous HH-artist. Check it out:

Afterwards we walked a bit around St.Pauli - went to see the shop of this artist who decorated Brucke 10.

Sandra really wanted to have the chocolate cake from the place we went to yesterday. So we did that. And the apple pie was also yummi!!!

A very nice day. Finished now with a lot of rain :(

Last weekend we had a nice grill with the friends. However, the weather wasn't so nice as you can see below:

Anyway we spent the whole day in this playground.

And then the whole week we had summer. The average temp. was around 28C. Amazing!!! sooo hard to sit at work... I had big plans to go to the coast during this weekend. And guess what? Saturday there was no sun at all and the last thing I wanted to do was swimming in the sea. Anyway we were with Handan and Hamid in Laboe - next to Kiel. A really nice place. Would have been even better if the weather had been nicer. Oh well. Pictures will follow later on.

Today I went to a park and wanted to get a bit of tan. Well, I sort of burned my legs. Hmmm... didn't expect it.

In 3 weeks I have vacations!!! Yuppi! Gotta check the weather forecast in the Northern Norway.

Tomorrow a new week. Hopefully not so hot.
