Feeling Fortified

Life's a Beach

The last few months have been quite busy for me and the whole of August was a hectic one indeed. Since my last post, I’ve been to a music festival, a wedding, the French coast and the Edinburgh festival. Over the next while I hope to blog about my splendid time in France and about some of the many wonderful shows that I attended in the Scottish capital. As if all that wasn’t enough, I also reached a significant milestone in terms of years on the planet during the middle of August. See if you can guess what it was from the songs below

  1. They chose a German title, a very slow song “Für mich soll’s rote Rosen regenen” by Hildegard Kneef. Every time something didn’t quite go the way they had planned they simply stopped and kissed…

  2. Thank you, Katrin. My back’s fine even after dragging a backpack of cds and dvds around Edinburgh. So, what song did Katha go for in the end?

  3. No way, I forgot it – again! Well, all the best! How’s your back? By the way, the wedding was gorgeous! Katha, Jörg, Kamila and Justyna say hello.
