The shadow thing is briiilliant!

Once again I smile because this thread is still going and because the sun is smiling on my face.

... the dog loves her first real dog bed we got her yesterday. "Does this mean I'm officially adopted?" her eyes said.
Now I feel like curling up in it too.

...because the Föhn is föhn-ing gloriously down the valley and I'm right in the middle of it. Have half a mind to throw all the doors and windows open.

Re: I smiled because...

Or given up EF for Lent? Hey, whatever you are doing DB - enjoy. Hope OldHand is also enjoying her well earned rest - and indeed all on EF.
I smiled today as there were 12s of bramblings (northern chaffinches) feeding on the patio this morning.

I smiled because friends from EF popped in out of the blue - good natter, watching the rugby followed by a raclette. A very nice Sunday..

Re: I smiled because...

...I sat on the balcony watching Fronalpstock turn pink in the light of the setting sun, with a cold beer and a plate of fleischkaese, and the satisfied (smug?) knowledge that I'd just managed to navigate through my and MN's registration at the local community office all by myself, entirely in German.

Sometimes it's good to look back and realise quite how far you've come, even if you think it's just been struggle, pain and misery all the way.

This Switzerland place isn't bad, really, is it?
