Tuesdays around the world

Last evening squeals of laughter, giggles and screams were coming from our living room. The kids had introduced their aunt to the game of monopoly and apparently aunty was getting rich in the process. Thats why the excitement....:D

We have my little sister visiting for 2 weeks and the kids are over the moon. Living abroad has a few disadvantages and having a loved one over is one of them. Germany is just too far and way too expensive for visits. So for kids who were used to having grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins(we are a very large family) drop in every month or two, living in Germany felt like living in forced exile. Fortunately for us, she is studying in Scotland for the next year and we are looking forward to having her over frequently.

What's your today like? Join us in the fun, we love to have you over....


  1. Monopoly is so fun and I love the pic! :-) Have a great day!

  2. What a nice treat! I loved that my all my sister's (4) and my parents made it over to Germany to really see what life aboard is like. Enjoy your time with her....

  3. Well, what do you know? We just "upgraded" our mini Monopoly set today (!) to a full-size City edition and J had been raking it in. Let's just hope that somehow this will translate into "real life" later on, hehe! :)

    HAve a wonderful visit with your sister!

  4. Sounds wonderful! ;) I'll be back to link up. I forgot it was Tuesday!

  5. Monopoly is a great way to spend an evening! Glad you got some extended family time in. Those of us who have family nearby don't always appreciate the proximity and go far too long without a visit.

  6. Monopoly is a great game - it gets quite competative in our house lol. Lovely for you to have family to visit.
    Many thanks for your visit and comment on my blog, I appreciate it :))

  7. I love Monopoly! I grew up in Atlantic City - where the board is based! Enjoy your visit!!

  8. This is an amazing shot. So beautiful !
