I haven't use the photo above (which I took years ago at V&A) for a long time, and you know why.
But now, despite the lockdown-lethargy, I am in the middle of an adventure.
At the beginning of 2021 I decided that I do not like to feel remote-controlled.
So, after having not seen the triplets since February 2020 (!) I acted: I had luck to rent an apartment in the village where Son, my Daughter-in-love and the triplets live. To be precise: it was my DiL who told me that the apartment was there to be rented, one street away from their house.
I thought: "OK - at least it is far enough away that one has to put on a jacket to visit each other". I don't want to intrude into a family - though welcomed and hopefully able to really help with three vivid little girls, no longer the babies I saw last year but little children who run around, start to speak - and love to lie on the ground and "read" a book.
I rented without having seen the apartment except on photos - (though Son went and looked at it once).
I keep my huge apartment in Berlin - by now I know myself: I am a city-girl.
I could buy the whole kitchen including all machines; and a good-looking big wardrobe in the bedroom. Yet the van the caretaker and his son filled today with the sofa, the bicycle, ten moving boxes and a lot of other things is full - tomorrow I will manage to climb inside, and then we three drive to Bavaria.
The janitor and his son are part-time knights - living in medieval tents, being able to fight with real swords, and hunt with real bow and arrow, so I see it as a sort of crusade:
Time to fight the dragon Corona, time to move again.
Wish me luck - and forgive me if you do not get comments at the moment: for some time I will have no Internet, though after five days quarantine I will try to get a connection to you in the house of Son&DiL.
On my smartphone I can see your comments (and will find out, how I can read your blogs too).
So: Toodle pip!
