Hello, a post from Germany........Finally!

A few photos to show you our new flat in Germany.

  1. Oh honey,

    I love your before and afters. The flat is lovely. It looks absolutely like you. I adore the view. It is so German.

    I love you guys. We miss you terribly. E-W was mentioned by Saf as she wants him at her birthday. I had to remind her that you aren;t here that time of year.

    Love and all good things to you.
