I was the only person asked to speak at my nephew’s wedding
I am often invited along with scores of young people to attend birthday parties
A young German man is involved, through his business, with the production of my books
My niece phoned me recently to make sure that I could get time off to attend her mid-week wedding next month, and I think there will be one or two more wedding invitations to come.
|I had no idea where I was going after I left the railway station|
|I followed the route that I had memorised from Googling |
earlier in the day
|What a lovely surprise I got |
after just a five-minute walk
|And it got better...|
|... and better!|
|And still they kept on coming!|
Footnote: the Abitur
The Abitur is the German school-leavers' exam, covering all subjects and including three special ones. In some cases the special projects can be done in English if the pupil chooses.
