Re: I smiled because...

My hand has healed, and I can (pretend to) play bass again.

And I just passed the 1000-post mark on EF.

Yup that was a lucky one.. You braved IKEA on a day like today ?


Smiled.. well not quite. Relief now and a feeling of tiredness after weeks of tension.

Saturday is the only day that I can make it there. It was full but it wasn't too bad (I'm an IKEA veteran ).

I hope you're ok - I've read a couple of posts where you indicated that you having a worrying time. If you need a listening ear, I think we're in the same area.

Re: I smiled because...

...we're new to Switzerland and enjoyed our first day on the ski slopes in Davos yesterday. Great snow, beautiful sunny weather and we went there with a girl I met through EF! After an unsettling few months, it reminded us of why we moved to Switzerland

Re: I smiled because...

Crossing the car park, I saw a colleague had one of those naff things dangling from his rear view mirror. It read: "I (heart) my penis". I checked, just to make sure: french number plates, as expected....

I smiled today when a little girl (4-6 years old) passed by at the train station and said: 'Right, I am getting my wedding dress'.

Re: I smiled because...

....because the local Scouts (Jungschi) came calling and asked me to swap something edible from my kitchen cupboard, for an eraser .
I gave them biscuits and they gave me the eraser and some Smarties in return.
Ahhh.....only in Switzerland. I love it here.
