Alphabet Club Catch Up - N

My last post has been a while, but I am back now with fun stuff, and madly trying to catch up before the end of the alphabet! This week, my letter is N, and since I didn't find a proper 'N' picture among my stitching, here is the November Ornament from the series my friend Magical did a few Years ago.


My word of the month is 'Nesthäkchen'. Literally, it means something like 'nest hooklet', but I've been told it actually originates from 'hocken' as in 'sitting' - so something or someone small, sitting in a nest. 'Nesthäkchen' means the youngest of a group (usually the youngest child of a family) and often, but not always, means being spoiled as well (as often happens with youngest children when everyone dotes on them).

Lovely ornie and a great word. Definitely applies to most youngest siblings I know.

Jetzt dauert es nicht mehr lange und du hast aufgeholt. Und wahrscheinlich wirst du mich noch überholen, lach.
Schönes unübersetzbares Wort diese Woche. Aber wenigstens kann man's schön erklären.
