A Quilt

A couple a weeks ago soon, Pauline came for a short visit and brought this amazing homemade quilt for Fleur. Such a wonderful and laboursome gift. Now Fleur has a blanket to play on where she will hopefully spend hours of fun in the future.

It's Rhubarb Season

What a lovely cake this was, definitely going into the save folder for future reference. If you want to try yourself this is the recipe.

From Mitte to Neukölln

On Thursday, it was a lovely weather. 28 degrees and a blue sky. We took the train to Mitte to do some errands and walked the walk back to Neukölln with Fleur sleeping in the pram. There was people everywhere, they all wanted to enjoy the nice summer weather. I managed to get quite a lot of colour on my arms, so after a couple of days with so much sun, I was happy to have a partly cloudy Saturday so my sensitive winter-skin could have a mini break.

Maternity Visitors

For the past three months we have had so many visitors at our place. They all wanted to welcome little Fleur into the world. They have come from near and far and the ones that couldn't make it all the way to Berlin have send greetings and good wishes. Fleur has been showered with lots of things like baby clothes, toys and books, and our home has never before been adorned with this many flowers. It is amazing how a little baby can create so much joy just by being present.

Another amazing side effect: some people I lost touch with got back in contact after learning about the news on this blog, so Fleur has also re-connected old friends, which I am very grateful for.

We still expect some people who has not made it here so far. Just this weekend Pauline will come from London to visit, and we can look forward to more visitors over the summer.

The Fig Tree

The fig is no longer stuck inside. Now it has been enjoying the evening sun on the balcony for the past month.
