Yesterday a neighbour gave birth to a son. Again she managed to do so at home like she did with her two other childs, too. We did this with Alessa aswell and recommend it to anybody who has a pregnancy without complications. So today we'll follow a tradition from (northern?) Germany, Babypinkeln, which roughly translates to baby peeing or baby pidding. This means that all the neighbours, friends and family will come to the house of the family with the new born child and congratulate the father (and if possible the mother and the baby, too) and have a gemütlich evening together celebrating the birth. Of course this includes a good amount of beer and schnaps to clink glasses in honor of the baby. That's probably where the term "baby pidding" comes from
Yesterday we also had our monthly cards turn. This time I managed to break the "picture curse". Usually I take a pic of how things are going and from that moment on I start losing badly. I once suspected that this relates to the amount of beer but it also happened last time when I had to drive.
However yesterday I was lucky and I even won in the end. Does anybody here play Doppelkopf
Tomorrow my autumn holidays begin. Together with my in-laws we'll have one week in a summerhouse on Langeland
. Afterwards we'll spend some days with my mormor in Odense
. I'm really looking forward to enjoy some days of fun and recreation. Since we are a big group we could even afford to book a house with a swimming pool. Oh and of course we'll take some games and the Hama pearls
