tell me, tell me (3)
a while ago, my sister re-photographed some of our family pictures (none of us own a decent scanner). sadly, this one turned out quite blurry, but you can still make out me on the right, i guess i must have been five around that time, next to me my mum and a friend of hers with her baby daughter. see how they fastened the top part of the pram on the sled? very clever. -- these days, all the side streets in berlin are properly snowed in, so that most people with young kids are pulling sleds rather than pushing prams. much easier in this weather and the kids love it. a friend told me yesterday that she tried to buy a sled herself and found they are sold out everywhere.
oh, talking about childhood memories, i've come across the nicest video via thank you very little (lovely blog, go and take a look!) -- a friend of hers from vienna made the video from his family's super 8 films. my parents never had a super 8 camera. did yours? oh, do take a look at the video!
and here's my next question for you: what's your favourite book or film this winter (or summer, for readers in the southern hemisphere)? i love reading your comments, so keep them coming!
