When we arrived back from Bremen, and my mobile had reception, then I read that Thomas had prepared “Pushed Again” and “Liebeslied”. Continue reading ““Pushed Again””
The weekend was spent travelling to and from Bremen, where my sister-in-law was holding a garden party for their 20th wedding anniversary. Continue reading “Garden Party – Bremen”
