Congrats to Ava and Hayden! WTG, girls!!!

Also, I'm so happy for Truly. How wonderful to find something so special again.

What cheered me up was having my family around me on Sunday. As it was my birthday Mr Selkie and our children had all shuffled their timetables to make sure they had the day off (weekends? what are they?) and both my siblings were with us too. It's so rare we all get time to spend together - the best present :)

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Suzanne! And have a great trip to Berlin, Dotsie. Vorsprung durch technik. 'S German. :D

Now in theory I should be able to. My dad was a German language teacher, our family has a number of German friends and we visited Germany most summers as kids (in our caravan). But alas, my Dad's ability with foreign languages did not rub off on me :roll: . I can get by to ask for beer, sausage n chips and then possibly a bed for the night. But after that I'm useless :lol:
Hope you have a good time Dotsie.

Where's Christian when you need him? :D

kann ich bitte auf toilette gehen? --- this should be "can I go to the bathroom?"
for anything else you can express yourself with gestures ;)

Right here.

If I can be of help, send me a PM. If you have Skype this might make things easier, too. :D

Just got the results from my first exam for this semester. Passed. :D

This made me laff - a spoof headline.

Congrats! :D And thanks for the offer too, if I think of anything I absolutely have to know I'll pm you, but generally I find that German people are so nice I can limp along with my poor vocabulary and they will do their best to understand me :D We go to Germany quite a lot though, so it's time I think to make more of an effort :think:

Cheery - the funny thing is that for ages I thought you were from Australia.* I think it's because your written English is so good and because you don't have a location on your profile. ;)




*I have no idea why.
