Hello peeps, it is Tuesday again and time for our T-party hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. Please do join us with a blogpost that features a drink in it somewhere.
My drink will appear a bit further on, but first I would like to show you my postcards. This one I received from Germany last week:
It's about the traditional dress of people living in Rügen, an island off the coast of Eastern Gemany in the Baltic sea. Rügen is known for it's beautiful beaches and White cliffs. I love these clothes. The couple in the middle might be a wedding couple. I also like the fact that there are small children too. In those days they dressed children as mini adults. (not practical).
The stamps on the card were nice too:
This stamp is also in the vein of traditional costume. This time about the national dress of Bavaria (You know, lederhosen etc) The writing says: 125 years First Bavarian mountain dress association) I'm sure our German speakers will correct me if I am wrong.
The castle (yes, it is real) looks like a fairytale castle out of Disney. I think it's beautiful.
Again the stamp is lovely but it gets a bit hidden under the overbearing date stamp.
What have I been doing this week? I have spent a lot of time at my computer and not just using it. I have been doing small maintenance jobs. One of the fans was making a lot of noise and when I opened the side I saw it had a lot of dust on it.
The white fan on the left was OK but the black fan was very dusty. The fan is black so all the grey bits are dust. This fan is important as it cools the motherboard.I had a can of compressed air to blow the dust off. That's all I dare do as I have no technical knowledge of computers (I wish I had)
Hubby has been busy in the ground floor flat. The back door is in and most of the tiles laid.
The carpenter came yesterday to put up the carcasses of the kitchen units. It's only a small flat and the kitchen is a small corner of the living area. But I think it will be functional.I must now really order my cooker as I can't have the granite put on until the stove is in place.
And this is the qualifier! I mean, this photo has a drink in it. The carpenter's assistent didn't want his beer and left the can on the worktop. Yes, I know, it is minute, but believe me, that is a can of lager beer.
And finally I will leave you with a few animal sculptures:
