New coffee maker
My younger son was in the zoo with the local vacation programm.
Sorry for the bad and rainy weather. From time to time with heavy downpours.
In the morning my elder son had an appointment with the dentist and in the afternoon he visited his grandparents - he haven´t seen them since some weeks.
Whilst he visited them, my husband and I drove to Ik*ea, for some shelves for our garage.

No picture for today!
Get miffed about the construction area at 5 am and about children who don´t keep the proprieties at 7 am .... Welcome holiday Sunday .... I´m so mad about it ....
After breakfast we made a little bike ride before we picked up my younger son. The nine days christian camp is over now. He had much fun, but he´s really tired and his voice is nearly gone.
So first we snuggled a little bit on the couch before we went out, for having dinner in our favorite Chinese restaurant.
Today we had another day with beautiful weather til the evening... there was a really heavy thunderstorm at 8 pm.

Also Happy birthday and the same good wishes to JanMary
Wow sunny day today... unexpected after many days of rain.
We had breakfast outside in a little café.
Then we bought a new coffee maker! A big dream of my husband came true. He got a genuine coffee maker .... mmmh this coffee taste really really delicious.
Later we had lunch in a restaurant. My elder son had ostrich steak.
In the late afternoon I cut him his hair, outside in the garden. Only for the picture my husband took the razor over.

Broken coffee maker
Panic in the night at 3 am - It sounded as we had a geyser in our kitchen. I feared a water hose of the dishwasher might be broken. Thanks God it wasn´t .... What was it? That was not better either Thanks God I become awake ... because our coffee maker was the geyser of the night..... white smoke and the coffee maker ...sprayed the powder of the pads through the whole kitchen....
Immediately I pulled the plug and went back to my bed with heart throb.
At almost 6 am I was still but I had to clean out the kitchen, before I went for a workday until 8 pm....
After cleaning the kitchen, I decided to went to the bakery - first - for a good glass of latté macchiato. That was really required. Then I was ready for working until 8 pm
In the afternoon my husband picked up our elder son for a two weeks holiday at home.
The sunset after work compensated for the shock in the night.
