...in cooperation with...
Yes, I am late with post again. I was too tired to do it yesterday and today I was a bit busy and then it took me a while to dig in my past... but I think I've done my homework well ;) Sadly, I don't have my oldest toys. I always had more teddy bears than dolls. My little teddy bear Tymoteusz, called like that after seeing a play for children is gone and stays only in my memory :P My big teddy bear that stayed with me for really long time, first named Tymoteusz's dad and after losing the little one changed his gender and became Alicia is gone too. But my I still have a companion of all my trips and vacation as a child - Bert and his brother Ernie, who didn't play such a significant role.
The books were my friends since childhood too. My grandpa was reading me Max und Moritz in German when I was little because he was a translator (and an engeneer) and my mum sais I started speaking a bit in German but when I was 4 my grandpa died and I forgot the language quickly. I wonder if I could speak it if he lived longer. Anyway, I still have this book as a remembrance of him. However I must say it's a rather cruel fairytale, as the boys in it kill hens, put gunpowder in man's pipe, and as result of one of their actions a dog is beaten O.o
A nicer book from my childhood I have is my beloved Children from the Noisy Village by Astrid Lindgren. It's an old book, which my uncle and my mum had. I so much love this story.
And I thought I'll show you this postcard that my friends from the neighbourhood sent me once from their holidays. It's a muscular guy on it (in case you have doubts) ;P
