Two milestones in one week! ( 100th post on EF )

Hi all,
Today I reached my 100th post one the EF! It's taken 3 years but I am now a 'member' instead of a 'junior'!
Incidentally this week I also realised that I have finally settled in Switzerland! It's been a bit of an uphill struggle for me but I think I'm finally really happy to be here.
I realised that the reason I didn't settle here was me but it seemed that no matter how hard I tried I just couldn't enjoy living here! There have been good times and bad times and times when I've thought yeah this isn't so bad but until now if someone had offered me a way out I probably would have jumped at the chance.
So for now I'm here to stay and happy about it. Thanks for all the helpful advice and fun threads!

Good Job I've also been here about 3 years and also never felt settled... so I know how you feel *hugs* Now we've moved to a beautiful village with really friendly people and our second baby on the way. I also finally feel more comfortable and happy to be here... Maybe 3 years is the Swiss settling point

A commendable achievement of 100 posts in 2 years ( since Nov 2010 on EF as I understand it ).

When you are here in CH longer, you will soon find it easier to increase that amount by sharing your experience, tips and tricks about life in CH.

Not exactly new..
