Garden Parties

I’ve had a pleasant week. It started quietly with no appointments and ended with me galloping around and only at home to sleep!

Thursday evening I went to my local SPD Summer Party. Very nice! Our Mayor introduced the General Secretary to me. Her name is Andrea Nahles and she was the guest speaker, The Mayor told her that I had taken German citizenship and then joined the party. She was very interested and we had a good chat.

Next day I went to Schröder’s garden house for a Stefan’s Photoshop Gang Summer Party and enjoyed relaxing in their garden. No surprise that the main activity was ‘Grillen’, and very tasty too with a cool glass of beer. Here are a few pics, including one of Helga offering you something!

From there, I rushed back to my corner of the city to help at a SPD stand and giving out information to the passing public. On Saturday morning I worked with other members knocking on doors and giving out even more information.

On returning home, I put furniture in my garden, prepared food and got ready for three ‘Oldie’ guests. It was the first time we had met this year. Lots of talk about meeting until I said stop talking and let’s just do it. Two arrived with the help of crutches/walking stick. They were more than happy to sit in the shade of a tree and enjoy what I had prepared.

It is clear that summer is coming to an end, so it is important to enjoy what is left with nice garden parties 🙂
