Decadent December

The time has come! Yay! It is really almost the end of the year and Christoph and I are finally in holiday-mode together. We are both in Berlin and are loving being able to wake up to slow mornings and spending lots of time simply reading. What a luxury :o)

Another luxury Christoph has discovered is a barber shop around the corner from us. No he hasn’t grown a beard but he gets all the whiskey or beer he can drink, a hair wash, haircut and his chin stubble shaved off in a strictly woman-free zone. We’re now calling it his ‘day spa’ :o)

That’s actually another customer as Christoph couldn’t take a selfie while he was in the chair.

We don’t have big plans for Christmas but this is the first year since we’ve been coming to Berlin that we won’t have a beautiful Christmas tree in the apartment. I’ve still decorated what I can but because Christoph will be heading back to Shanghai on Jan 2, it will mean that it’ll be quite difficult for me to throw a tree out the window by myself on Jan 6. (You may be thinking that I could get a small tree but the whole fun of having one, for me that is, is to make sure I have one that almost touches the ceiling!). So, regardless of a tree-less Christmas, we’re very much still enjoying the time here.

Happy getting-ready-for-Christmas everyone!!
