Oliver and I hopped aboard yet another train for a quick trip up North this weekend to celebrate the 60th birthday of a good family friend.
Gerlinde, my mother-in-law, dreamed up a great answer to the dilemma of what to give a man who has everything:
Gerlinde was a ball of nerves leading up to the evening. Turned out she didn’t need to be. Everyone who’d been lucky enough to chip in on this present was pretty pleased with themselves afterwards, me included. Anyone living in Germany might recognize her from the semi-finals of this show last year (video).
It was a fantastic, although my iPhone picture isn’t. The video of her act above is worth the effort, as was her performance.
