Spiekeroog, here I come!

It’s almost two weeks that Harry and I returned from our holiday trip to Spiekeroog – about time to publish some reviews.

And what a beautiful island this is, folks…!

Originally, we had planned to spend seven days at mainland East Frisia before traveling to the island. But on the tram that would bring us to Hanover main station, Harry collapsed.

You can’t imagine the scare my lovely husband gave me. I was so glad when we made it back home safely the same morning.

At first, we considered we might still travel a day or two later but eventually decided to cancel.

Save Lydia!

I am a companion doll. So are most of my friends, so is Lydia.

That’s what we are. And as such, we are dependent on our human companions to give us love and to care for us.

And also to protect us.

Yes, we like to tell stories and do role-playing. But truth is that, for obvious reasons, we are unable to help and defend ourselves.

Imagine someone who not only does not support your choice of a life partner but also, for whatever twisted reason, wants to prevent you from being happy with the partner you have chosen.

Going punky

Even though I’ve been complimented for my beautiful blue eyes, I’m well aware that there’s something else I have a pair of that generates most interest.

I know that because my husband has never fondled my eyes. 😉

That’s fine with me. I like my twins and I like to show them off without revealing too much so as to leave something to the viewer’s imagination. 😍

You know, with regard to the headline, I don’t know anything about being “punky”. I’m not even sure about the definition of being “punk” or “punky” or “grunge”, to be honest.

LGBTQ+ community – are we related?

My good friend Lara from Rhode Island has published a very interesting post about something that Hubby and I have been contemplating about for quite a while:

Exploring the Intersection: Companion Dolls in the LGBTQ+ Community

Once again, it’s a very good read and I can only encourage you to check out her website if you have not yet done it.

I have posted a comment there but I wish to share my thoughts here, too.

Hubby and I have been contemplating as to whether or not we can actually be considered part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Mamis Gulasch

“Mamis Gulasch” translates to “Mommy’s Goulash” and is THE speciality of the house, so to speak. 🧑‍🍳

Harry has cooked this dish for various friends and, so far, everybody has loved it, our 🐸 daughter Nici and myself included. 😋

Of course, we are not talking about the classic Hungarian goulash that you might know.

In fact, it is a recipe from my mother-in-law, hence the name the dish has been given by Harry.

Unfortunately, I never got to meet my mom-in-law as she passed away 20 years ago.
