|During the drizzle-hike|
We're only one month in and we're slacking in our blogging! Granted, not much is happening, apart from work, watching television and finding out about ancestors and in Miss Oswin's case: going outside quite often, being let in by either me or one of the people from the flat upstairs and eating and sleeping.
As for the finding out about ancestors, I have come closer to the riddle of the cousin who went to Asia and died there. I have looked into which camps he was in, I contacted a family member of his (who knew less than I did, but was willing to send me a photograph, to be received soon) and now the only thing left to do is find his original records. Which are in The Hague, the Netherlands! Where I am not.
|THIS is the right aunt whose husband died in a lightning strike.|
The photo I showed you a couple of days ago was her sister-in-law.
On my mother's side, I have found several ancestors and people related to those ancestors that make good stories. I doubt they ever thought about it like that, but there you go. Since my grandmother hails from royal stock (over a millennium ago), hers is thus far the most interesting, because of earlier descendants of said royal stock, but that does not mean my grandfather has boring relatives at all. I just have to find them, that's all!
In other news: I have a date tonight. With a married man (shock, horror, gasp). Mind you, his wife trusts me according to him (and rightly so). Actually I have been on a date with him two years ago to the same event and we were supposed to go last year as well, but I was sick and had to cancel last minute. So, no worries anyone that I am going to steal somebody else's husband, I am not! Oh, and the new black shoes will NOT be worn tonight, even though they're open-toed.
