2013 was a tough but good year for us. As we continued to settle in Germany, made new friends and had to readjust to a new (better) job position, here are a few key facts I wanted to share with you about 2013.
Numbers of photos taken: over 4300
Number of bikes in our shed: 7 (hum...)
Number of Genovese eaten in Sicily: 9 (but not by myself!!!)
3 German words learned:
schwanger* (and all of the others that followed: Waage, Ultraschalluntersuchung, Hebamme,...)
Marienkäfer: LJ surprised us with translating that one for us once completely unexpectedly (=ladybird) - a new life skill, no doubt!
Bindehautentzündung: conjunctivitis. Not the kind of words you learn at school but essential with a child attending kindergarten.
3 best moments:
Proud parents moment: LJ's fluency in (German and) English
Favourite family holiday: Lanzarote for its relaxing powers
Wishing you all the very best for 2014!
*schwanger = pregnant
Waage = scale
Ultraschalluntersuchung = ultrasound (easy, right?)
Hebamme = midwife
