Tante Astrid is always right – Tante Astrid hat immer Recht

After what seemed a lot of long grey days, finally the sky cleared up and a bit of blue was shining through. Auntie Astrid, who lives in the greyer Northern part of Germany, is known in our family, to be very generous and optimistic with the expression “blue sky”. A soon as the smallest bit comes through she notices it. And makes everyone else notice it too. After living for a bit in Germany I start to do the same.

Nach einer Reihe von langen, grauen Tagen, hat sich heute endlich der Himmel gelichtet und etwas Blau schien durch die Wolkendecke. Tante Astrid, die im – des öfteren bedeckten – Norddeutschland wohnt, ist in unserer Familie dafür bekannt, dass sie sehr grosszügig – ja geradezu optimistisch – mit dem Ausdruck “Blauer Himmel” ist. Sie merkt als Erste wenn etwas Blau durchkommt und macht auch alle anderen darauf aufmerksam. Nach einiger Zeit in Deutschland fange auch ich damit an.
