No desasters happened on sunday, but the issues are boiling under the surface.

So we decided to keep busy and set up the sandbox for our baby girl. First Nick was digging a hole, then set some concrete tiles to make a foundation. Here is a picture after the sandbox was set.

And then another one once we filled it with sand....

Which created instant sand-happiness for the newest member of our family.

In the afternoon, we had to get out of the house and went to an event that confirmed that we are officially old. There is a castle close to our house and they had an afternoon outdoor dancing event (called Be-swinged - not sure if that makes sense in english). I just love jazz and swing, and when we arrived, there was a dance show going on. About 12 people were dancing Lindy Hop, dressed up like in the 20's and it was so cute. I was always dancing when I was younger, but I have some issues with one of my knees (basically the knee cap jumps out of the joint from time to time) - so I need to avoid to become too active :)

So we sat down and watched it. After the group was done, a band started playing swing, salsa, rumba, cha cha and so on, and couples from the audience would start to dance. It was just wonderful sitting in the park with the castle in the background, a cool breeze and this wonderful music. I wouldn't have even noticed, but it was true that about 80% of the people were over 55. Anyways - I really enjoyed it. Unfortunately I forgot my camera, so you have to use your imagination.

I am waiting for a person to come and repair our dishwasher this morning (Update: He was here and did not repair it since the repair would cost 400 Euro - which is more or less the cost of a new dishwasher). And I actually should be working right now and not blogging.....

On another note, my colleague's wife had a baby yesterday. His name is Anton (something I need to get used to, which is not quite easy). What a happy event in the middle of all this mess. Please can this be the start of the positive row of events?

    Your wee girl is so dinky-do cute! I love it when. You show pictures of her. She looks very content in her new play area.

    Das klingt nach einem netten Tag! Und ich hoffe, alles andere läuft auch? Ich drück die Daumen.

    The sandbox looks great and your cutie is, well, adorable! I laughed at the castle/dance story. It so would have been me. Sounds like tons of fun and doesn't it always seem to happen that you don't have your camera JUST when you need it? GRRR.

    Hope things are continuing to look up this week.

    Oh your little one is just so adorable! Thanks for showing an update of how big she is now! Just look at those chubby little hands. Dancing at the castle sounds like a dream. Absolutely nothing remotely similar to that around here. So, yes, I'll have to use my imagination!
