Yes the heading is true, we have been grounded for a month by the kids, all because we went AWOL for a week without any entries in the blog. Makes you wonder, once upon a time you could only send postcards, now you are obliged to contact daily. Rick and I tried to smooth things over but obviously to no avail, we are grounded. Because of this situation we stayed home yesterday. Frank and Marion had to go to work so we stayed here and relaxed. I will admit to walking to the bakery to get some breadrolls, we just wanted to eat something to stay in good health kids. Also the sun was out for the first time in a month which is also healthy.
Today we escaped for a couple of hours without being detected and went for a walk along the river Elbe. Once again it was a sunny and warm day and a good day for a walk.It is Germany's Labour Day holiday which is a very important and well respected holiday. Almost everything is shut so there is nothing much better to do than go for a walk. People and bicycles everywhere where we were, but still nice.  Halfway through our walk we stopped for a cuppa and a rest. Marion and I had the best hot chocolate we have ever tasted, sooooo creamy. Back home again by 2pm and in time to have a late BBQ lunch. Frank is the chief cook for that one. He loves his BBQs and is at his best when he lites the barbie.
Both of them have spent a lot of time in Oz and loved the meat we have.  Well he excelled himself , everything tasted rather delicious. Lots of food, yes the usual german sausage was there too of course. So despite being grounded we did have a good and easy day.
Tomorrow we will defy the children's rules once again and go out for the day. I think we are heading for an island near the Danish border.
Kids if we say that we are very sorry and will never be naughty again will you let us go out? It seems an awful waste of an airfare otherwise. Love you lots anyway.

Stu if that was us sounding genuine would not have mattered!!!! You are to soft. No I will allow you to enjoy your trip but your grounding will start when you get home..... Unless there are presents of course. Xoxo
