instead of a wishlist (updated as something comes to my mind)
I don't eat meat
I try to reduce my use of (especially single-use) plastic to as little as possible
I like to swim, hike and kayak
I bike almost all my daily ways
I have a small garden in the middle of Vienna with challenging conditions for most plants - so ideas/seeds very welcome: not very sunny, but dry with an underground car park beneath, the only things really happy there at the moment are: two fig trees, a peach tree, lavender, some rambler roses


PM sent. Thanks j4shaw

An additional book will arrive from the USA, via Bookmooch. I included the bookplate for it in the parcel.



Hope my secret santa partner likes the treats :-)


I think it was me you sent to, sorry for the belated thank you. Lovely parcel x


Merry Christmas to all. :)

Now the parcel is stored away for Christmas. :)

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas to you... all 😊

I'm in mainland for the rest of the month. My secret Santa must have sent the present to my address on the island (Porto Santo). In case it gets there until the 17th, my wife will bring it to me. Otherwise, I will only be able to come here and thank properly to Santa after the Holidays. Please don't worry about it my dear Santa.
Thank you.




Thank you chawoso! Will open it on christmas and post a proper "thank you" then. Merry christmas!

Brilliant, I was getting a bit concerned that it might be lost on its way to you.
Enjoy, and Happy New Year!! :)


The book is "Survivors - true stories of children in the Holocaust".
I suppose it comes from Santa. Is it?
Please let me know, dear Santa. And send me a BCID, will you?
Thank you so much 😊
