Day 98: Here I am in the almost finished studio, just want to paint the box under the plant white and take a load of "treasures" to the cellar for future reference.

In Germany they don't have dessert so much, generally people meet for "coffee and cake" at around 4, then hang around till dinner at 6 or 7. Today is my Mother-in-law's birthday so as I write we are in the food stupor between cake and dinner. The food addict in me appreciates the good old fashioned common sense of filling up on cake at the start of the meal, but the rest of me is not so sure. Although I guess in the usual Australian way when dessert comes last, we don't usually take the opportunity to go for a long walk between the two courses so possibly this is in fact the healthier way. For dinner we are going to a restaurant that serves the largest portions I have ever seen, its really impossible to finish without nausea. Fortunately they are very happy to pack up the leftovers and send them home, so that will be lunch out of the way tomorrow.
