Because of time difference we lost an hour going to Germany, coming back we regained it for a day then lost it again because of the time change, or something - I get confused.
We all had a lovely time out there, meeting up with the Chauffeur's family, and seeing his new niece, only 5 months old and very sweet. Although they live only 10 minutes by car outside a town they are actually in the country so we had a few walks in beautiful countryside. Have a look at where they live, in the ground floor
This is outside - quite rural and fairly secluded although there are other houses around. It's a bit too lonely for my SIL, she'd like a few more neighbours around to chat to. The vehicle is their 9 seater van which they sometimes use for travelling around in and converting into a bed at the back! E and A and the chauffeur are standing around
Here we are going for a walk in the beautiful countryside just by their home, the colours are gorgeous at this time of year.
You can't see clearly but the chauffeur, BIL and A are flying kites - quite successfully too, there was a wind but not a nasty one, fresh, in fact the weather while we were there was great, cold enough for jackets but not scarves and gloves, sunny and very bright as you can see. Altogether we were 9 of us as SIL's mother had come up with a 1 1/2 hr drive to see us and spent a few hours, one of which was spent on this lovely kite flying, football playing and general messing about walk
I'm sure over the next few weeks I'll post up more pictures of our Germany visit but for now -bye bye.
