For those of you that know me well you will know that I never do things by half. This year I have been practicing hard to improve my German by listening to radio stations, watching Austrian news on the tv, reading books and constantly listening to my Michel Thomas cds. As part of my quest I have also been searching out blogs to read. I found a fantastic blog – altough not German – and have really enjoyed reading it over the last 12 months.

Madelief has the most beautiful photographs on her blog and I love to read about the garden and other things around her house. At the moment she has a fantastic Christmas Giveaway so why not head over there and take a look around. I am sure that you will park yourself at her table and stay a while.
