Week 8

Lots of fun this week building furniture, baking quiche and pavlova, having to deal with a flat tire again and relying on unreliable public transport... New couch is awesome, thanks a billion, K.

Week 7

More housework - changing light fixtures :D - this week, babysitting
and all manners of food!
The upside is that I've been able to go furniture shopping -downside
carrying things up five flights of stairs. Went to a nice Vietnamese
restaurant; Onkel Ho and had a beef and glass noodle salad. Flavour
explosion! :D

Week 6

It was an eventful week in spite of a busy work schedule; Cinema (Django Unchained), Ikea, more snow and picturesque Berlin landscapes burned into my mind, baking lemon meringue tortelettes, and lots of elbow
grease, lots of change. -Oh, and guinnea pigs fit in there too.
Also used a circular saw for the first time and can understand the respect people have for heavy machinery with sharp turning bits. I finished my work smiling, all limbs and appendages attached and merely covered in a layer of sawdust, while my inner self was screaming like a maniac in a pool of sweat...
I've almost finished replacing all the lights in our appartment with LED lamps -let's see if that leads to any changes in our power consumption.

Week 5

We bought a fridge, there was good food, lots and lots of bad grammar, and visitors from far away lands.
