❖ Frohes Neues Jahr ❖ Happy New Year ❖

"Tiptoing and shh ... shh ...   and finally ... only me, myself and I. "
"No Adventcalendar, no projekt, not that daily Advent dress anymore -nothing and no one, but the new year and me... and a book?"
" Der kleine Prinz! Absolutely playable ... should I, ...we ..."
"Ahem!" - "A bear."
 "Yes, precisely." - "Seems someone cheered too soon *sigh* ... who are you?" -  "I'm Noelle, born on Christmasday, now here to live with you." 
"Ok then, Noelle, join me reading, huddling - OH ...  our dear visitors are here as well... :


Glückliches neues Jahr, ihr Reingucker!

"We thought ... you should not be not that alone, Paola..." - *sigh*


  1. Yes, Paola, we're never far away from here. Sorry to spoil your 'looked-forward-to-time-alone' with your new book and Christmas Bear....BUT those Commoneo Bears were obviously on their way to join you too so doubt if you would have had that precipous 'ME' time anyway.

    A very happy New Year to all of you over there in Germany and many thanks again for organising and taking part in such superb blog posts to entertain us and give us those necessary and much needed regular 'Sasha fixes!'

  2. Many thanks for all of your wonderful blogs. Wishing you and your family a healthy, happy new year...Carol from Canada

  3. What a treat the beautiful Paola all alone for New Years Day.. well nearly .. what a sweet bear Noelle is arrived in time for New Year's day.
    We look forward to your wonderful posts this year and wish you Paola , the bears the other Commoneo's and Mr & Mrs Digne and family a very happy and healthy new year :)xxx
