Freddi die Bratpfanne und Henny

Hi friends,
Yesterday was such a really great day! Freddi and me were really feathering around town.
Henny and Goerdie
Freddi and me with Geordie the goose. .. We had to be careful, because he wanted to bite us. I think he forgot who we were because we hadn’t seen each other for years.

Me and Freddi enjoying an Alsterwasser …. Nothing better than a refreshing stop before fluttering about town again.
tea and friends_edit
Freddi and me enjoying a tea with some of my other friends that Freddi didn’t know before…. I think Freddi enjoys meeting new freinds.

We hope that you had a great Saturday too?
Euer,
Freddi die Bratpfanne und Henny

What to write or what to say???

This seems to be the question of the day, because I was informed by a friend that I haven’t posted anything here for awhile… Ok, sorry. But I have been busy with work and other stuff and as everyone knows there only are so many hours in a day and to fit everything in that I want to do… well, it just doesn’t seem to work.

Then there was the New Year’s resolution issue too. I have never in my life made one because I know myself too good and I would/ could make one and probably the next day forget all about it, so to be on the safe side…

I just don’t make any! Now that really makes my life simple no worries, no reminders that I forgot to stick to the resolution and so forth!! Though while writing here I could think of a couple of things I could maybe put on a list.

1. Hoe out the attic… a nightmare under the roof just waiting for my moment of motivation… what year that will be; I really can’t tell you and don’t hold your breath waiting for me to do the job either. But it is on my to do list!!

2. Sort out books… I started but stopped after I found a book that I had never read before but have owned it for at least 20 years… High time to read it, before I forget it! So, with a nice cup of tea and relax on the sofa with the book….. Who needs to sort out the books now? Not me!!

3. The closet… Vintage styles are in, so why sort out my clothing when I am at the height of fashion now!! My golly it is so good to know that if you save something long enough it comes back in style and because it was tucked away all those years in the closet; no one will recognize it and only ask me if it is a new vintage outfit… And I can say “Oh, it is just something that I have had hanging around in my closet”… So, I guess forget that idea too about sorting out the closet.

Though I will admit I downloaded a plan that is supposed to help me organize things a bit better around here. I have even printed it out and hung it in the kitchen next to all the other things that are on the important things to do board. At least I have gotten as far as hanging it up and taking a look at it every day and contemplating to myself “when I have time I will do something on this piece of paper”.

I know that the motivation is just a step away and only a matter of time when I will tackle one of those jobs that are on the paper. I like the one about sorting out a drawer… Really easy and quick…. So I thought, I guess you have to start with a small drawer with not much in it and not one crammed with photos like I did, because I ended up sitting down and reminiscing about things while looking at them.

Well, at least now I can say that I have written about something and I will admit that I feel better too just thinking about all the things I should be doing, but instead I am sitting here writing something.

Enjoy whatever it is that you are doing and remember even if you goof-off whatever you have started at home will be there when you get back home waiting for you to finish it.

The Milkman

Many people still live where the milkman delivers the milk daily to their doorsteps. What a lovely service and too bad this wasn’t everywhere around the world; where you could just leave a note and the same day or the next day your order will/ would be filled . But does anyone ever think about the notes that are left for the milkman and that that person delivers you your milk rain or shine and sometimes fighting the perils of dogs cats & sheep.

When I lived in England we had a pet sheep on our property and he was the official guard dog too and he just loved the milkman but I don’t think the milkman loved Buddy as much as Buddy loved him.

The milkman came faithfully daily to our door and delivered my milk according to what was written on my note that I had stuck in the empty bottle. The wonderful things in life!

Though I think those notes that a milkman gets can sometimes be a bit confusing leaving the milkman to wonder what exactly does the person really want.

Below is a little collection that was passed on to me of notes left for milkmen. Who wrote the notes- I have no idea, but I can thank my aunt again for this great bit of info! – Thank you

Dear Milkman:

I’ve just had a baby, please leave another one.

Please don’t leave any more milk. All they do is drink it.

Milkman, please close the gate behind you because the birds keep pecking the tops off the milk.

Milkman, please could I have a loaf but not bread today.

Sorry about yesterday’s note. I didn’t mean one egg and a dozen pints, but the other way round.

When you leave my milk please knock on my bedroom window and wake me because I want you to give me a hand to turn the mattress.

Please knock. My TV’s broken down and I missed last night’s Coronation Street. If you saw it, will you tell me what happened over a cup of tea?

Milk is needed for the baby. Father is unable to supply it.

From now on please leave two pints every other day and one pint on the days in between, except Wednesdays and Saturdays when I don’t want any milk.

My back door is open. Please put milk in ‘fridge, get money out of cup in drawer and leave change on kitchen table in pence, because we want to play bingo tonight.

Please leave no milk today. When I say today, I mean tomorrow, for I wrote this note yesterday.

When you leave the milk please put the coal on the boiler, let dog out and put newspaper inside the screen door. P.S. Don’t leave any milk.

No milk. Please do not leave milk at No. 15 either as he is dead until further notice.

Those are just some of the great little notes and so please remember if you live where there is milkmen please write them a note that they will understand. Enjoy your glass of milk!
