xmas fun as a young child

had a wonderful final saturday before xmas with former flatmates christina, inga and alp around for lunch – have to say I made my best poached eggs ever for ‘eggs florentine’. Inga, Christina and I then went to the Weihnachstmarkt at Dahlem Domäne which is a museum and still functioning ecological farm. Was very cute and German, we sat and listened to a lady play harp while another told fairy tales all in medieval costume. We continued the big kid theme by decorating our own glass xmas balls – here we are in our painting gears, and Glühwein. More of Christina and Inga at the market below, and Inga lamenting the paint on the hands. Was a delightful day, topped off by a lovely evening at my friend Rae’s for  potluck dinner!
