Thanks to everyone who thought of me yesterday and left me birthday messages here on LJ, on FB or Twitter or by any other means. :-)
Thank you again for the v-gift, [livejournal.com profile] fry_addict!

I spent a nice, quiet day with just my parents and my two grannys. :-) We had some lovely cake and I also made cupcakes (chocolate with raspberry topping).

And in the evening we got pizza from a nearby pizzeria. *yummy*
These are the napkins we used btw. *love*

Got some good presents, too. :-) From my parents I got a hoover (My old one was already 11 years old and not in top form anymore. *g* Love this new one though. Doesn't need vacuum cleaner bags anymore), a bathroom clock, one of these scent vases you can put in the bathroom or whereever (see picture. Is there a proper English name for this?) and some money.

My mom also got me the Robin Hood series 2.1 BD, so I can finally continue watching this show. *yay* :D
From my grannys there was money of course, which is always a good thing. *g* I actually already spent some of it on towels and the rest will be used for new clothes. Hope I can find something nice on Tuesday.
And, last but not least, friends' presents were this little fellow...

nici-anhänger

Isn't he cute. :D And some DVDs (you never saw that coming, did you? :p *gg*): Criminal Minds season 4, Wall Of Silence (more James Nesbitt \o/) and One Hundred Mornings (Ciarán <3).

Hello all. Yep, as you can see I am still alive... ;-)

I thought it was finally time to make a proper entry again. Well, somewhat proper. It's more like a kind of retrospective update or something. *lol* Mostly an excuse to post pics of my Xmas presents and cat really... ;D

I had a very nice Christmas. :-) As always, I spent Christmas Eve with my parents and both grannies this time.

...and our Christmas dinner. And no, we didn't eat the cat. :p *lol* Just the goose. But it was delicious!

Btw, this is the case I bought for my iPhone. It looks awesome! <3

From 30 December until 4 January I was in Berlin to visit my friend. I've always spent New Year's with her these last past years and we always have a great time! :-) On New Year's Eve we played some board games (Keltis, Dominion and Qwirkle Cubes) which was great fun. :D And in the new year we had a shopping day at Alexanderplatz & Friedrichstrasse and the next day went to the cinema to see The Hobbit. <3

I only took exactly one photo this time. *lol* (Well, and one of her dog, but it didn't actually turn out well...)

Oh, and here's the stuff I bought in Berlin. I basically spent almost all of my Christmas money... *whistles innocently* *gg*

Oh, and my cat had "helped" packing my suitcase for Berlin. Just so you know. :D *lol*

Happy Easter everyone! I hope you can all enjoy a nice long weekend. :-)

Saw this cute pic on a friend's FB page. <3


I spent Easter at my parent's house. Drove there on Saturday afternoon and just returned home. My grandma was also there, and yesterday we met the rest of the family (well, most of them anyway) at a restaurant for dinner. All in all I had quite a nice time. :-)
The Easter bunny was also very generous to me. *g* Apart from a fair amount of yummy chocolate it brought me this:


<3<3<3
Love the idea of giving me the money in Pound Sterling! And no, I definitely never get even near this much for Easter. ;-) It also already includes some holiday money from my granny. *yay* This will pay nicely for 1-2 musical/theatre visits in London, I'd say. :-)

And last but not least, have a random Jamie pic. :D *lol*

Right, so my Hamburg report has to be postponed a few more days yet again... (I already tried to post it, but then LJ screwed up. *argh* Luckily I had saved most of it, but it needs to be finished again and I can't quite remember what I had written the first time...)

The reason being that we finally started renovating my living room! My mum and I cleared out all the shelves and cupboards and stuff and put everything into boxes which are now scattered around my bedroom and the kitchen. Especially my bedroom (which isn't that big to begin with) is almost fully laden. Won't be easy to find my bed these next few days. *lol* ;-)

This is what my living room looks like at the moment:

Cosy, isn't it? :D *gg*

So tomorrow we'll have to start tearing down the wallpapers. Sounds like fun! Or NOT... :p

The '50s...

luinalda: (TW - Jack vortex time)
Today my parents, granny and I went to an exhibition about life in West Germany in the 1950s. It wasn't a very big one, but rather nicely done. Besides the actual exhibits there were lots of interesting facts to read too. And at the end of the exhibition there was a room where they showed a film which mainly consisted of commercials from that time. Quite amusing sometimes (we didn't watch it all to the end though). :D

some photos )

And on an unrelated note: Thank you [livejournal.com profile] cordeliadelayne for the v-gift! :-)

My father is going to present my mother with tickets for the new Rocky Horror Show tour (which premieres tonight in Cologne) for her birthday and invited me to come along. \o/ Yeah, baby! :D I bloody LOVE the movie so much. <3 But I have never seen the show live before, so I'm quite excited about it! I booked the tickets yesterday for 14 August in Hamburg. I'm really looking forward to it. :-) The theatre (Deutsches Schauspielhaus) looks very posh, too!



Also, thanks for the v-gift, [livejournal.com profile] caesaria! I'm looking forward to tomorrow. :D (And am getting a bit nervous already...)

Christmas

luinalda: (DH - xmas)

Wow, is it really Boxing Day already? This Christmas really went by fast...
So, a Merry (belated) Christmas to everyone! I hope you all had a nice time. :-)

I had to work on Christmas Eve until 2.30 p.m. (yeah, that sucked. Especially as there weren't that many customers, which kinda was to be expected...). Then I drove home to get my cat and the Christmas presents and other stuff I needed and drove to my parents', where I spent the last two nights. My two grannies were there, too.
This was the first time for little Jamie to be away from home. :D And even overnight! *g* But he was actually pretty well-behaved. :-) (Ok, as a precaution he was confined to the corridor + bathroom when we went to bed. ;-)) And I think he quite enjoyed the little change of scenery. So I don't think it will be a problem to leave him with my parents for a couple of days when I go on holidays. *yay*
Anyways... We had a delicious dinner (needless to say I ate too much! Why is there always so much tasty food on Christmas?! *lol*) and afterwards it was time for the presents.
This is what I got from family and friends \o/ )



I also took a photo of our Christmas tree, of course:

The tree is standing on a little stool which is covered with that red blanket, and Jamie loved hiding under there. :D So cute! Speaking of which... new digicam + adorable cat = christmassy Jamie picspam coming soon! *gg*

On Christmas Day, as is our tradition, we met up with the rest of the family (i.e. my aunts, uncles and cousins) in a restaurant (where there was lots more of yummy food... *bursts*) and afterwards all went together to my aunt I.'s house where we spent the rest of the evening.

--------------------
In other news: Yesterday evening in bed I listened to the Cabin Pressure Christmas special. :D Which was bloody hilarious!!!! *rofl* <3<3 Loved it and am looking very much forward to the new series! *hooray* :D

Still haven't watched the Doctor Who Christmas Special though, but I'm going to later today. <3 Can't wait!!! \o/

--------------------
Oh, and I almost forgot. These are the Christmas cards from you guys. Thanks again so much!! <3

No school today! \o/ YAY! Thank you, snow! :D It comes in especially handy, because I didn't have today's homework. *whistles innocently* *lol*
Still have to go out later to buy some stuff, though...

Just spoke to my mother on the phone for almost 1.5 hours. She told me that my favourite aunt I. has breast cancer. :-( That sucks big time!! *is sad* She's currently in the hospital for an operation and I think some chemotherapy. The hospital is only a 5-10 minutes walk from my place, so I'll probably go visit her on the weekend.

Hiya. D'you remember me? ;-) Just realized I haven't posted for about 2 weeks... :-( Mainly because I didn't really have anything to say. Yeah, my life is that boring. *sighs* Still don't, really... *lol*

Today was beautiful weather. <3 As long as you stayed in the sun, it also was considerably warm. There was a farmers' market in the city, and most of the shops in the pedestrian zone and our shopping mall were open as well, so I spent a couple of hours with my parents there. It was quite nice.

Also, my scratching post finally arrived this weekend. *yay* So today I spent 2 hours (!) assembling it. Which was good fun actually. :D I quite enjoyed it. And I'm a bit proud that I managed it all by myself! *g* Go, me! :D
This is what it looked like at first:



And this is the result of my hard work:
piccies )


Don't mind the little plush cat. *lol* I just thought it was somehow fitting. :D
Anyway, I really like it. :-) Hopefully the cat will, too... ;-) *gg*

Oh, and I have to share this:


♥♥♥ Probably the best thing I saw today. *happy sigh*
John Owen-Jones - my favourite Valjean ever!! <3<3<3 Simon Bowman, who comes a close second after I saw him in London in August. <3<3 And Colm Wilkinson. :-)

Today was the annual running event of our city. There are 4 different distances you can run. My father did the half marathon (21 km), which is the longest of them. He finished in just under 2 hours (1:57h, I think). Not bad. :-) I was just there to watch, with my mum and grandma. :D
The weather wasn't that great, unfortunately. It rained a couple of times. Not too heavily, but still annoying...

luinalda: (Castle)
- I'm loving my new coffee machine!! <3 It's a Philips Senseo Latte Select and it was a gift from my granny. :-) There wasn't even a special occasion for it. She wanted to buy one for herself (the "normal" Senseo, though) and had heard that I would like to have one too sometime. :D So she just bought both of them! Yay for generous family members! \o/ *g*

- Was jogging again today. If you can call it that... *lol* Was only for about 12 minutes, to check out how long one lap around the park would take. ;-) But now I know for future reference, and can maybe establish 3-4 laps as a normal training, and then increase the number in a few months time or so.

- At the moment I'm catching up on Season 2 of Castle. I still love that show. The last two episodes, "Tick Tick Tick..." and "Boom!", were really good and gripping! Only 6 more episodes to go now, sadly...

As today is Mother's Day here, I spent the day with my parents. We had a nice time. :-)
Talked a lot about all kinds of things, drank some coffee, talked some more...
Then in the evening we went to a Pizzeria, where I had Tagliatelle in a cream sauce with salmon. It was most delicious. <3


This was my gift for my mum:



I had some problems trying to take a good photo. *lol* Needless to say it looks a lot better "in real". ;-) And you can't really see the little butterfly and dragonfly clips in the pic, they are pretty cute.
My mum loved it, which makes me very happy. <3

Happy Easter to everyone! I hope you are having some lovely days with many colourful Easter eggs. :D

Today I spent the whole day at my parents'. My granny was there too. We started with an extensive breakfast and later had some biscuits for tea time. We also tried to have a little walk at some point, but where only out for about 20 minutes before it started raining, so we went back home again. Oh, and I got some presents: the book "Tintentod" (Inkdeath), a wellness shower gel and lots of chocolate. :-)  In the evening we went out to a restaurant. I ate a sort of chicken+pineapple kebab with peanut sauce, rice and snow peas, which was all very yummy. Later we looked through some old photographs. That always is fun. *lol*
