Dear readers and followers and passers by!
It's been a while and for good reason. I was so in swing with posting and uploading in the beginning of the year and then several incidents kept me from going on. three children are not enough to keep me from posting but when one of them needs to be taken to the hospital every other day because he fell and needed crutches:
it only took him a few days and he fell again. This time UP the stairs and he needed some small plastic surgery on the other leg...
I tried to cheer me up in between driving to school and the hospital by visiting some nice cafes around here like the newly renovated Paris Croissant in Hannam-dong. It is a chain but all the branches are so nicely done and the food is good quality!
I also made a new friend: Griffin, the dog of my friend Ilze. I checked on him from time to time whilst there were away house hunting in Hongkong. I think he likes me and I am telling myself it is not only because of the chewy bones I always brought for him as a treat...
April greeted us with cold and rainy weather and we were desperately waiting for spring.
Because the outside did not provide it we tried to install it in our house on the window sill in the kitchen
And then I had to have another operation: cysts from my breasts had to be removed. they were benign but too big and could become a hazard in the future. So again a major operation and waiting for the results. All was fine but you worry and rething and reflect and ponder anyhow... My mind was simply to occupied for blogging and posting pictures on Flickr. I missed it but simply did not have the energy!
An after all that spring finally arrived with all its beauty and mild climate and sunny days! We welcomed spring in our house and also in the garden.
Over the following weeks we could be found around town in the various greeneries to get some little treasures for the garden.
And I love the varieties of succulents you encounter here in Korea. I am having problems chosing only some....
The pictures remind me of the year before when we moved to Korea: an new, unknown territory which is now home. In fact it became home very quickly.
I am so thankful for that move and for the new life that opened up for us. The last months have been a bit rough due to health issues but we recovered quickly and are now open for everything to come!
I am sorry that I have been away for so long and will answer your lovely mails and comments within the next few days! And for everybody who is eagerly awaiting some snail mail from me: I am also working on that and am getting into a routine again!
Hope to see you soon!
