I’m starting to settle in except I went home early from school yesterday with a really bad migraine. It was horrible. I think it’s from sleeping wrong. The pillows are very different.. Yes, when I say ‘pillows’ I mean that. I sleep on about 4 to 5 of them. Haha. But it’s okay; I make a giant pillow and make sure it will support me. It was just that one night when I didn’t bother and looked what happened? Anyway, I took a day off today because I woke up with a really sick stomach. I asked Johanna if I could stay at home.
And then at night it is bread, bread and more bread with homemade jam and all different sorts of cheese and salami and meat spread (which is lovely, I assure you) OMG, and I ate this prawn looking things. I didn’t want to, I hate them so much. They are the worst things ever and I still ate them. But I didn’t taste them, I just swallowed them without chewing them, it was so gross. The fish isn’t as fresh here. Herr Zirpel told me this before we were served fish; I got to make out like our fish is the freshest. It was pretty cool because he looked a little embarrassed that German fish isn’t as nice. It isn’t because it smells stronger & doesn’t have a nice taste but the lemon sauce it was cooked in tasted lovely. So, appreciate fish in
I’m going to write another email but only mum can read it because it’s personal. I’m just a little concerned that’s all. Nothing too serious. Oh, and I’m looking forward to my tour. On Saturday night we went to a disco at Johanna’s dance school. They all dance proper dances in the disco, none of this jumping up and down and so forth. So, I couldn’t dance much. A friend of Johanna’s, who had a very motherly disposition yet was so tall and graceful, taught me a little of a dance and then pulled this guy over to dance with me outside the disco room. Argh! This guy was so good looking too, absolutely perfect. Haha. Really. I reckon he had some Italian or Greek background. Anyway, I danced a little with him. And then I was pulled away to learn something else. And then I was sitting in the disco room and I saw him and he smiled at me. Yay! Sigh, I’m sad. Haha. Overall, at Johanna’s dance lessons prior to that I got winked at by this guy that both Krisi and Jo hate. He’s really up himself, thinks he can dance, but he wouldn’t know a rhythm if it hit him in the face and he asked me to dance. But I turned him down and I told him about me being from
On Sunday it was the first Advent. This is where an Advent wreath is decorated and four candles are put on the wreath. Frau Zirpel made hers and hung it from the ceiling. It seriously is the most beautiful one I have seen since being here. Mum, you would love it. I’ve taken some photographs but I really can’t capture its beauty, you just have to be here to see it. Anyway, on each Sunday of December before Christmas, you light one candle. I got to light the first candle on Sunday morning. It was great. We even have an Advent wreath in our classroom that Judith (pronounced Yudit) made and brought it in. Christmas is really exciting here. Oh, and before I forget. On the Saturday at the disco, me and Johanna sung karaoke. Haha. It was really embarrassing. We sung Pretty Woman, because it was the only song Johanna knew. And I sounded really bad at the start. But it was just that I couldn’t hear myself but I could hear Johanna and she was really off key and it threw me off but I got on track. And I won another Adventskalender. Yay! I only sung just to get one. This means I have two in my bedroom and one in the hall that Henner, Beat, Johanna and I take turns taking a present on our designated days. An Adventskalender, if you don’t realise, is the calendar that you open up the doors on each day and you get a chocolate in each door until the 24th of December. Frau Zirpel all buys us one and we get it on the 1st December. Chocolate!!
On Sunday also, we went to
