You Can't See It All, So Stop Trying...
A Slow Holiday to meet your soul. We do all rush around like mad trying to circumvent the trials and tribulations of our daily life. Deep down we all know that the stumbling and road blocks were put up with our own hands or rather attitude. Aren't we a carb...

Eisenberg's Kinderolympiade: Successful, Fun & 99 Luftballons.
Parents & kids had fun. What surprised me the most was how many dads were running the gauntlet with their daughter's or son's. Let's face it, the various stations were rather tricky to complete for adults never mind the kids. Not that bad, but rather fun se...

The Eisenberg Children's " Olympics ".
Holiday fun for the children. It has been an annual event for some time and this year I've cracked the nod to help out. Very pleased indeed to be called up to co-manage a table or dare I say station. As I have never been in or near it, I can only imagine wh...

Honestly It Felt Like Only 5 Minutes To Me!
" What on earth took you so long ?" There is this divine Health-Natural shop in Grosspetersdorf: Der Blumental Laden . Every now and again ( when we feel a bit flush ) we go in there. Yesterday was more a case of me wanting to get some organic tumeric. The ...

Might This Be The Secret To A Long & Happy Marriage?
Deciphering the all important language of couple speak. Isn't it funny that before we have that all important ring on our finger ( symbol to the world that the dusty shelf needs to be sans us ) we tend to be more conservative in our approach. Stars are stil...

The Stork House Lives Up To Its Name.

So It's Germany Vs Argentina After All...
A nervy four days ahead. Compared to the other semi final, the one played last night was, to put it mildly; not-so-much-fun-to-watch. Yes, Germany's 7 historical goals have spoiled us for a long time to come or at least until some other memorable match take...

A Bit Of This & A Bit Of That.
Seen around town... Seeing the tractor buzz around those fields was rather comforting. It sounds silly, but hearing the brr brr of a tractor and seeing the colour of the fields changing ( back to brown soil ) feels to me like the essence of life. Flower pow...

Never do to others, what you don't want done to yourself...
Introduction
In July 2011 my husband Bob and I moved from South-Africa to a wonderful little village in Burgenland, called Eisenberg. I had lived in S.A. for thirty years, but I was missing my family too much and we decided to move here. This blog is about the little everyday things, that I think about in general or see here in Burgenland, that are special, sometimes funny but hopefully enjoyable to you. My aim is to make you forget your stresses for just a few minutes each day. Let me know if I succeed. Thank you.
Bragging rights
Started a new life in my forties : New country, new occupation, new everything....but luckily all this with my " old " husband.
