DISARONNO, and a bit of Diary from 24th of May 2022

ORIGINALE SINCE 1525

THE WORLD’S FAVOURITE ITALIAN LIQUEUR

ILLVA SARONNO

20% vol.

One year ago, for the 16th of May, Peter’s birthday, I had bought this 700ml bottle.

I and my guests had it with afternoon coffee and Blackforest Cake.

I wrote the following in my DIARY on the 10th of May 2021:

Diary

This is where we had lunch on Mother’s Day:

“Located at 5 Crown Lane Wollongong, Kneading Ruby offers authentic woodfire pizzas & bespoke dishes made to share. Produced traditionally with the freshest seasonal produce, join us for a dining occasion with a casual modern approach.”

We had a lovely time on that day sharing some very good food. We had booked a table for eight.

At the moment the great news is, that finally we are actually planning to build a deck: It looks it may be happening very soon now!

Also very soon, Caroline and I are going to see the movie ‘June again’ in the Gala Cinema:

The other day I watched the movie ‘Schwarzwaldliebe’ and I liked it very much:

On the following Sunday, 16th May, Peter would have been 86. I am going to have on that day some family and friends over for afternoon coffee and cake in memory of Peter.

So, it looks like I keep myself pretty busy!

I DO CONTINUE WITH A BIT OF DIARY FOR TODAY, 24TH OF MAY 2022:

For Dinner tonight, I wanted to have a bit of wine. But I had no wine left, none whatsoever. What to do? I checked the cupboard. Voila, some of last year’s DIARONNO was left. I had a bit of it with some Tonic Water. It was delicious together with my well cooked beautiful Dinner! 🙂

In last year’s Diary from the 10th of May I mention, how much I love to spend time with my son Martin. Actually, he rang me today. Following our phone conversation, I wrote to him an email about our recent trip to Berlin. Here is some of what I wrote about that trip:

We saw Ilse and Finn three times; and Peter Uwe and Astrid

I saw probably four times. I saw Corinna and Walter once;

also, Hendrick and family I saw once, Bergers once, Nadine

twice, and Petra once. Some people I saw in our apartment

only, other people I saw only at their place, or meeting 

somewhere for a nice meal.

By the way, Michael Berger besides losing his father and

sister Gudrun, he also lost his wife to cancer some time

ago. His two daughters are married, each with three

children. Gudrun had two sons. One son is married

with three children also. 🙂

So, Doris has already nine great-grandchildren! 🙂

We saw Nadine’s partner, Stefan, and her little daughter,

Lina, who turned three on the 16th of May. (Dad’s birthday!)

We celebrated Ilse’s birthday at her place on the 13th of May, and then

with the whole family in an Indian restaurant on the 14th of May.

Das Papadam-Team hat sich eine klare Mission zum Ziel gesetzt: Wir möchten nicht nur ein sehr gutes indisches Restaurant sein, sondern Ihnen eine Wohlfühloase bieten, in der Sie gerne verweilen.papadam-berlin.de

 Wednesday, the 18th of May, was the day when Bergers met us

for lunch at an Italian Restaurant at Prager Platz. And Iles and Finn

came there two for lunch on that day. 🙂

Prager Platz was very close to our department! 🙂

San Marino – Prager PlatzWILLKOMMEN IN BERLIN´S “LA SERENISSIMA” San Marino ist die älteste bestehende Republik der Welt – seit dem Jahr 301 unabhängig.

My Carpal Tunnel Relief Operation is on Thursday, the 16th of June! 🙂

Back to Berlin: The 16th of May was the only day that I did spend just

with Caroline, Monika, and Krystal! We had ‘Ice Becher’ at Victoria Luise

Platz. And then we went by Public Transport to the Ka-de-We. where the

four of us had a good time in the Restaurant at the Top, thinking of Papa. 🙂

We also did buy a few things at the Ka-de-We. I bought an old fashioned,

wooden ‘Baukasten’ as a birthday gift for Lina. 🙁

Thanks, Martin, for ringing me today! 🙂

Talk to you soon. 🙂

  1. ‘On the following Sunday, 16th May, Peter would have been 86. I am going to have on that day some family and friends over for afternoon coffee and cake in memory of Peter.’

    I wrote the above at the beginning of May 2021 and towards the end of May 2022 I wrote something
    about this Italian liqueur that we have had last year:

    ‘DISARONNO
    ORIGINALE SINCE 1525
    THE WORLD’S FAVOURITE ITALIAN LIQUEUR
    ILLVA SARONNO
    20% vol.

    One year ago, for the 16th of May, Peter’s birthday, I had bought this 700ml bottle.
    I and my guests had it with afternoon coffee and Blackforest Cake.

    So just a few days ago, in the 24th of May 2022, I wrote the following:

    ‘For Dinner tonight, I wanted to have a bit of wine. But I had no wine left, none whatsoever. What to do? I checked the cupboard. Voila, some of last year’s DISARONNO was left. I had a bit of it with some Tonic Water. It was delicious together with my well cooked beautiful Dinner!’

    Last night, I happened to be in the Dapto Shopping Centre. I asked a salesperson in Cole’s Liqueurland, whether
    they did have this special Italian LIQUEUR, and to my great joy, she was able to sell me the exact same bottle! 🙂

  2. About our recent trip to Berlin. Here is some of what I wrote about that trip:

    ‘We saw Ilse and Finn three times; and Peter Uwe and Astrid
    I saw probably four times. I saw Corinna and Walter once;
    also, Hendrick and family I saw once, Bergers once, Nadine
    twice, and Petra once. Some people I saw in our apartment
    only, other people I saw only at their place, or meeting
    somewhere for a nice meal.

    By the way, Michael Berger besides losing his father and
    sister Gudrun, he also lost his wife to cancer some time
    ago. His two daughters are married, each with three
    children. Gudrun had two sons. One son is married
    with three children also. 🙂

    So, Doris has already nine great-grandchildren! :-)’

    By the way, the Bergers came together with Peter and me and and our little children,
    Gabriele and Monika, and their children, Gudrun and Michael, a migrants to Australia.
    This was in May 1959!! All of us were passengers on that P & P Liner STRAITHAIRD.

    The Bergers returned to Berlin after a few years in Australia. After some hard work
    they were able to establish a prosperous business in Berlin. Unfortunately, the father,
    Karl-Heinz Berger, had an early death. However, the son, Michael. was able to take
    over the business, and he is still leading it today, aged now 63, the same as my
    daughter Monika, who is also 63.

    Ilse, of course is my sister-in-law and turned 88 on the 13th of May.

    Peter-Uwe is my brother. He turned 80 last October.

    Corinna, my niece, is the only child of Peter-Uwe and ex-sister-in-law Klaudia.

    We saw dear Klaudia in Hospital: She is battling liver cancer. It does not look good.
