Tuesday's around the world

(I am always intrigued by the German'S creativity with plants and flowers. Gifted by hubby on my day)

Hubby and I celebrate our birthday's 5 days apart. Today is his, mine was on the 24th. My family took me by surprise by forgetting mine...:D I was pretty amused! 
Today we have been busy perking up the house for him, preparing cards. Last night I was baking till quite late for his fellow colleagues at work. Did you know that in Germany, the birthday boy/girl has got to treat his fellow workers with cake and coffee? I didn't know and now I know why. The first year his birthday was on the weekend, last year he was in India. I was so glad that I was spared the first two years. Baking for Germans gets me all stressed up cause no way do my cakes match up to theirs.
Anyway, I am now off to begin preparations for tonight's dinner and bake a cake for us. 
What are you doing today? Link up with us and let us know..


  1. Happy belated birthday - good looking flower! :-)

  2. Happy Birthday to you and your hubby! My hubby was never in town for his so I lucked out! I'm sure your cake turned out great! Love the plant it's so pretty!

  3. I know Birthdays are exhausting in Germany. What is with having to bake for everyone or make your own party. My mother-in-law had four cakes for about 20 guest who poped over this year for her birthday.

  4. Happy birthday to you and your husband. I too remember baking cakes for my husband to take to work, and then he said his colleagues would all line up to shake his hand and congratulate him, and the birthday person had to take drinks too, so everyone would have a tiny tot of something.


I love it when you stop by to say a few words...
