Because today is my 2 years anniversary in Switzerland.
...and yesterday I was going through some stuff and found the flight ticket that brought me here 2 years ago... Made me think about all the changes and how much different it turned out to be, and of course, a little smile too.
and the moral of the story is....e-tickets are crap.

Re: I smiled because...

I saw a lady who must have been in her sixties, whizzing down the road on a micro scooter.

Re: I smiled because...

..because one of my best friends back home has an adorable 5-year old boy, who of course knows that I live in Switzerland now. He was watching the Spain-Ch football game and had asked: "Switzerland? So auntie Ulla is playing too?"

Happy Anniversary!

I smiled today because an older Swiss gentleman did the "Shall-we-dance" two-step with me as we attempted to pass each other on the rainy street this morning... nice to get a sunshiny expression from a local on such a gloomy day.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled today because my gorgeous 4 month old baby girl smiled at me whilst blowing raspberries and waving her arms and legs around with excitement even though she had me up between 4.30 & 6.30 this morning, but I still love her to bits

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because I am not rubbish. I realised there is still hope for me to become an England Footballer.

Re: I smiled because...

I smile today, on my way to the ascetic library where I have to cram the entire day, I met a lady on the train, in her 80s, who wore a classy and big outfit, carefully stitched together by hand and embroidered, with a matching handmade embroidered scarf..All those hours of patient skill made me smile. It's nice to see needlework still lives. She was lonely, but crisp, smiley and carried herself with an air of tolerance, wisdom and respect. Yes!

Re: I smiled because...

I'M smiling because every time i go on facebook I still got EXs that tell me they love me after over 20 years! I Just feel sorry for their husbands. Come to think of it, It's no wonder why I left them.

Re: I smiled because...

I smile big time because last night my mum arrived to Basel, and she had a surprise birthday present for me: My brother!
I had no idea, and it was so cool!
