As usual, I am late for my blog post. So much for German punctuality. It has been a busy period around our house since we moved to Ireland. What with working full time and taking care of the four kids together with my husband, I am not finding enough inspiration to write a blog about Germany and living in Germany. I feel a bit far away from my life there at the moment, during this phase of adjusting to a new life and culture in another country.
I know, excuses, excuses…But my only contact with Germany right now is through my husband and my family in Heidelberg. My kids are still speaking German at home, but we are struggling with maintaining the balance when their lives outside the home are all in English. I hope that we can keep it up and that we will get enough German visitors to give them perspective on the language. Right now, it is all daddy.
So my point is this: I am taking a break from blogging for the German Way. When I am feeling motivated and less busy, and more inspired, I will come back. I’ll also pop in with guest blogs once in a while (again, when the inspiration hits). I do hope that I can return in the future when I have more to give and more to share. I have enjoyed blogging for the past year or two. Good luck to all of you expats out there. Enjoy it!
