I've almost forgotten how to put a post up - it's been soooooo long. In fact October 2014 was the last time!
It's been nagging at me to come back for quite a wee while now, but tonight I finally decided just to do it and not just think about it.
So, an update is in order I think!
Let's see now what have I been up to.
Emm, hum - how can 6/7 months go by and it feels as if I haven't done much!
First off I don't think I ever mentioned it but Karen graduated with honours from university - we are so proud of her - all of her hard work and dedication paid off.
Now she is just waiting to find her dream job which I'm sure isn't too far away.
Emma finished her 6 months in Germany and is now back at university in Glasgow and in her 3rd year.
We visited her in Germany in January and spent the week in Berlin (some pictures below). It was a cold, wet, snowy dismal week but we enjoyed it anyway, so much to see and do.
Laura is getting married in December. Bridal and bridesmaid dresses have been ordered and plans are well underway.
And our wee Riley turns 2 next week - where does the time go.
The older I get the more often I ask myself that question - I've still to come up with an answer!!!
Other than that nothing much else is happening!
Anyway, pictures of Berlin!
The Brandenburg Gate - it was snowing, sleet and rain and bitterly cold this day and we walked for miles!
The Reichstag building at the back on the left. Stunning building and definitely worth a visit.
Berlin is a city of cranes - lots of work being done and everywhere you looked there were cranes.
The TV tower in Alexanderplatz, the top disappearing into the clouds.
Poseiden sculpture - usually there are fountains going but not that day.
Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels statues(and Dan tagged on at the end)
We took a train out to Potsdam.
Palaces and opulance galore.
Such beautiful architecture.
The sun even came out for a short while before we got the train back.
Just a few of the very many pictures that I took while there.
We did so much in a week - walking, museums, sighseeing.
All in all we had a very enjoyable week in Berlin - such a lot of history too.
It wasn't somewhere I ever expected to visit but I'm so glad we did.
