Thanks!

As for moving — I think I'll let the inital shock wear off before contemplating next steps (this has happened rather suddenly).

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled and laughed today... as I friend sent me a link to Miranda Hart's "Miranda" TV series on YouTube and which I can't seem to be able to watch in the land of Swiss because my town is too small to get digital cable...

Got everything I need to have a good evening.

Everything from the UK

Re: I smiled because...

because a friend gave me the phone number of one of her friend.

Single friend, of course.

She told me : she's a nice person, I told her about you, just text her.

Re: I smiled because...

...because once again our carefully planned Valentine's dinner wound up badly overcooked.

Here's to the next 40 years, eh?

Re: I smiled because...

...because our daughter cooked our 'Valentine's dinner' and it was neither over- nor undercooked and I did neither the preparation nor the washing up.

Re: I smiled because...

The other day, while sitting in Il Baretto at Zurich HB, watching the frothed milk on my schale slowly congeal and trying not to watch the women on the escalator going by in their cute winter woollies, I smiled because... I realised I had someone to wait for.

I missed last year as I was in Zurich
I would also have liked to see Seasick Steve.
Certainly planning on going this year as it is less than an hour up the road from me
