Re: The April Attitude of Gratitude

I am grateful that my nieces now want to video chat with me in a way that we leave the camera rolling and they are doing their thing and I am doing my thing and every few seconds / sometimes minutes they just show something on-screen to me or start talking about something from that day. I find it lovely how they show that they miss the fact that I couldn't visit as we have planned.

I am grateful that my friend in NY is safe. and that we video chat today with another friend in Melbourne and the fourth friend in London. this type of video chat wouldn't happen if we are not in this situation. can't wait to continue organizing our trip to Australia, this time in 2021

A friend of mine recently said just think of how long your bed is - most beds are about two metres long.

... just don't carry a bed around with you, even if it is on wheels ...

Grateful that my company is able to weather this storm and is actually hiring, so that is one less worry.

Re: The April Attitude of Gratitude

So very grateful that Marigin veterinary clinic and the Tierspital are able to take in emergencies during this crisis.

I've said this in other threads, but we are fortunate with the quality of care available here in normal times; in these abnormal times that they have been able to keep things running to care for our critters is something of a wonder. Both clinics - and many others throughout Switzerland - certainly deserves our gratitude.

Hm, this sounds quite weird. En plus, my bed is bigger. And they have talked about larger, safer distances, too.

Today, my gratitude goes to all those who are learning and working extra when they do not have to.

To friends snowing us under their art ideas and creativity and wait for us to inspire them.

To those who don't mind us making noise and music and keep making music themselves.

To evil whatsapp that still enables really decent music video classes.

To my former students who are taking care of my family now.

To my study buddies.

To everyone who starts the day with breakfast.

To all the GPs out there now and their staff.

Indeed my son is approaching that and beds longer than 2m usually have to be custom made. It is rather inconvenient.

I'm pretty damn grateful for Forest Gin.

My bed is King Size but my dick is frickin' ginormous. Seriously. The Biggest Ever.

Re: The April Attitude of Gratitude

Am happy that this Corona Virus has bought our „Mehrfamilienhaus“ a bit closer together. Had an excess of plant earth for my herb balcony, so offered it (of course FOC) in an email to my (otherwise very Swiss - if you get my meaning) neighbour. Since then we‘re almost on exchanging flour and sugar (leaving it outside the door) terms.

Re: The April Attitude of Gratitude

Our SKS bed is now in a guest bedroom. When I had my first knee replacement, we moved to a room next to a bathroom, with 2 Queen S beds (140cm wide) and mine was raised up with special risers. After both knees were done, took away risers but loved that room and decided to stay- and put both beds together - 2m x 2m80 yeah- fabulous - space for doglet, cat, and spread out. With a special central piece to make it feel like one mattress- and a bottom sheet made from 2 sheets- but 2 single duvets. Fab

Guests love our ex SKS bed though.

I am thankful for people using other languages here, so special to have a community where almost everyone is multilingual and multicultural.

Now, this mehrfamilienhaus - multihousehold building? A block of apartments?

Or just stick some woolly socks on.

I am really thankful for our large stock of yarn. Never thought we'd be stuck at home like this. The message of this is, keep buying yarn, ladies and gentlemen.

Re: The April Attitude of Gratitude

I‘m grateful that EF has found a safe place for ‚us isolated‘ to vent, that is moderated really well.

Be it gardening, sport, health, WFH, pets, sex, online delivery etc etc etc.

We‘re all cooking with the same water...

I kinda get these kinds of messages by PM. And I answer all of them. Would be great if we could keep at least this thread to answer all of our questions free from comment, so that it can focus on the on-going situation.

As far as I remember, the thread is titled „the April attitude of Gratitude“
