I've now moved to Switzerland, learning to navigate a new culture.
I managed to catch a bus and the metro, then catch the correct one's home again. Congratulating myself.
Catching the metro in Switzerland is quite an achievement.

Welcome. Will you reveal which (language)-part you moved to? Or will it stay "in the shadows of my mind"?

Re: I smiled because...

I was sat in a small bar having a drink with my partner when suddenly he asked me what I wanted most in the world right now. I replied my daughter he told me to turn around and she was stood behind me. I burst into tears and couldn’t stop smiling. Her boyfriend had driven her 9hrs to bring her.

Re: I smiled because...

After 3 years of feeling like I was wading through treacle I decided to give up my twice weekly term time German lessons and join a conversation group instead I got lost somewhere in German A2 in late 2018 when I was in a class that had too many people in it and never really got the momentum back last year which affected my confidence.

If I can get it back I'll rejoin in the autumn, but B1 was just a jump too far for me last year.

Re: I smiled because...

Bought a device from amazon.de, delivered to a German address, paid in Euros and the thing had a Swiss plug!
And nope, it was not a Swiss product.

Re: I smiled because...

I noticed Omtatsat had tried to resurrect a very old and slightly....controversial thread on "fatties", probably with the hope that he'll have some people up in their arms.

Some things never change.
