Tjarko lives in Portugal and goes to the German school in Lisbon. He sent me an amazing and entertaining letter about his perfect day.
Tjarko wrote in German. In English his letter says:
The unexpected happens far to rarely!
My perfect day started unexpectedly with me sitting in the car on time with Dad at 7:10 a.m. and looking into a deep ditch. We wanted to drive to school and my Dad had forgotten that the building workers had dug up the passage from our area the evening before and we could not drive through anymore.
I cheered loudly: “No school today! I can continue to listen to Harry Potter!”
We turned round and returned to my surprised Mother. I got a cup of tea and Nutella breads and I went to my room to the most exciting radio play of all time.
Later I took care of the animals and moved the horses with the riding instructor. After a delicious lunch Grandma said to me: “Come along, boy, we want to do the German homework.” “Well”, I thought, “that fits.”
My perfect day continued because my Grandma let me go shortly after that. I played with my Playmobil figures on the sand hill in front of the ditch when the excavator turned up and filled up everything again. When the road was free, we drove to the beach to go surfing.
The evening continued cozily. Everybody already in pyjamas we played Cluedo.
The day would have been completely perfect if I did not have to write this text about my “perfect day”. But I really can’t complain at all!
Dear Tjarko, I like your letter so much! You are a great entertainer! 🙂
I’m sorry that it disturbed your perfect day that you had to write this letter, but I’m so happy you did, because it’s wonderful! Danke! 🙂
I like Nutella bread, too, and to go surfing and to have a cozy evening playing something. And I can imagine that it’s great not to have to go to school unexpectedly. 🙂
I wish you very nice unexpected surprises in your life from time to time and send you a big hug from Germany! Karina.
PS: This was the last letter from the children at the German school in Lisbon. I enjoyed reading and sharing each and every one of them! Thank you so much, Barbara and Thomas and your learning groups, for all these wonderful letters! ❤
