      Wünsche dir auch einen schönen Tag, liebe Gislinde. Wir hatten ein schönes Wochenende am Sussex Inlet. Jetzt ist schon Donnerstag bei uns. Peter und ich wollen heute ins Kino gehen. Die News sind jetzt immer schrecklich. Es ist besser sich die News nicht allzu oft anzusehen. Man sollte sich mehr mit schönen Dingen befassen! Ich sehe mir immer gern an, was du in deinen Blogs veröffentlichst, liebe Gislinde. Recht liebe Grüsse von mir, Uta. 🙂
