Confessions about bunny names, expensive shoes and the English language.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope your weekend is going great! I am linking up with Alyx from Every Day Is A New Adventure because I have something to confess.

Number one. 

One of my bunnies is named after a famous Swedish cat. 


Number two.

My other bunny is named after a character from German Sesame Street. I don't think that character even exists in the American version.
Yes, I named my bunnies after a pink bird and a talking cat who wears green pants. 



Number three.

A couple of years ago I bought the most expensive shoes I ever owned. I never spent that much money for a pair of shoes again. They were 200 Euros (260 dollars) and I found them on  a trip to the Netherlands. I know that some people spend a lot more money for shoes but this was a whole lot of money to spend on a pair of shoes for me. But I had to buy  them. And the thing is that I only wore them 5 times. I guess because I don't want to ruin them. I don't know. First I decided not to buy them but the next day I had to drive an hour back to the store where I saw them. 

Number four. 

I still discover new exciting things in the English language. Last week I found out what a "car boot sale" is. And it is not what I thought it would be. Fascinating. 

Number five.

There are some words in the English language that I really dislike because I always seem to say them in the wrong way. Or they just sound stupid when I say them. Some of these words are:
"owl", "comfortable", "sewing", "legit", "vehicle" and so on. Don't know why I struggle with them. 





Do you have anything to confess? Have a lovely Sunday!

  5. You picked some of the best bunny names ever :)
    I totally know what you mean about the English language - I'm still finding so many new things and there are words I never seem to be able to get right, too.
    Yes, please, I'd like a pic of these shoes, too :) I'd do the same thing, I wouldn't want to ruin them and would hardly ever wear them.
    I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
    Ich drücke dich gaaanz fest, liebe Katrin.

  8. what a car boot sale?
    i don't know what to do with that expensive of shoes. wait, i think i spent that amount on shoes :P but mine are mountain shoes that helped me to survive in the forest, so that's forgivable, right? i never buy shoes for fashion. i buy shoes for function and needs. i swear.

    i named my turtles over F1 drivers. they are hakinnen and schummacher ;)
    i love Germans

  10. I didn't know what a "car boot sale" is either. I don't think I ever heard of the phrase before but I guess I just don't go out often enough.

    have a sweet day.
