Geocaching, ups and downs

Okay, the year 2014 ended very good when it come to geocaching. In December we found some really nice caches. One was in Loccum with a xylophon which I really liked and I was surprised that we were TTF (Third to find) on the second day after it was publised. That would have never happened in Hameln. This cache was also a lot of fun. You need to play a melody and have to finish it by yourself at the end. Thats how you got the numbers to the lock. I was lucky as I only need one try. Volker would have taken much longer for it. ;)

And we also found some very special caches in the region around Petershagen. I'll only show you some pictures and no stories to them. We also saw some nice building and places.

In December we also made the number "1000". That should be a special cache and we also thought that we had taken a special one. At the end we had problems with finding one station (and I had to call a friend) and when we were at the final there were no decoration material in the box with which you could built a little ship. :( That was a bit sad and disappointing. :( So I only made a picture with the box and me.

And as you've seen, we moved in January, so January and February were very busy months with no time for geocaching. So 2015 started a bit disappointing here as well. :( I feel like I want to go outside, but Volker isn't in the mood yet. Hopefully tomorrow. At least I made a "little" tour with Thordis and Fynn. We wanted to find 6 caches. At the end we only found 2 of them as we had to stop after the 2nd. And the 1st one I didn't solve and have to come back as it was too hard to solve withing some minutes. The 2nd also had a tricky box but I found a way to logbook a bit easier. :) This the cache, it looks really funny. ;)

Time to decorate

I'm sorry that I had no time to post this. In the wintertime I made again a "Winter"-decoration. Maybe you remember my "Autumn"-decoration, but this time with the letters of winter. I know it is kinda late, but maybe you still want to see it.

I also made this one for spring. :) Thordis helped me a bit and decided which fairies and colors I should take. ;) That was funny!!!

Thordis and I also made some Easter decoration. Little eggs with washi tape and Thordis wanted to make an egg with sticker stars on it. 

What do you think of these decorations? Would you try it yourself?

New year, new start, new flat

Time was flying lately and we were so busy. Last year, we decided to move back to my parents house. But that was big plan. There was a lot to do in the new flat. We had to remove wallpapers, had to make a new door and had to renovate a lot. We were making all these things from October last year to February. Here you can see the changes in our flat a bit. Sadly I haven't made so many pictures of the old flat.

I was also very busy with painting furnitures. I painted all our Billy shelves from Ikea and I turned all furnitures into shabby chic. These are the results:

And we had to buy a new kitchen. We decided to buy one from Ikea. My father and Volker had fun building it up and I think it looks quite nice. :)

And these are some pictures of our flat now:

Can you remember the pic how it looked before?
Thordis room

What do you think of our new flat. I try to do it in shabby chic. Sadly our bathroom doesn't look like it, really. And the other two rooms are too much chaos at the moment to make a picture, but I'll show it to you in the next weeks as well. ;)
