Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?
I am quite happy living where I now live. A bit of everything. Even London did not bother me so much, although I could have done with a little more sun. Living in the concrete was not actually ideal. Switzerland has a bit of everything, rain, snow, sun: no problem.
What is your favorite month of the year?
I do not have a favourite month, but season. I can live with them all, but Autumn does it nicely for me. No more sun stress from Summer and garden organisation in Spring. I can sit back and relax and wait for the Winter to arrive, which is also quite welcome. I am getting lazy in my older days and just like to watch it all happening.
Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself?
I always wanted long hair, which I had for many years. It was because mum never wanted me to have long hair, and I was always disagreeing with mum. However, as I progressed in age, I had it cut short, as short as possible and I love it. Just a shower in the morning and let it dry. I have fine hair and a good cut makes it look better. It also suits grey I find. And the bathroom does not get blocked so much by the long hairs that used to cause problems.
What is the easiest way for your to learn something new? By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom?
I am a great follower of learning by doing. You can lecture me and be perfect in explaining stuff, but actually doing it personally does it for me. And at my age I know it all so who wants to learn.
What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am glad that this example of urban architecture has now been completed (our appartment: ground floor on the right). The scaffolding is finished, the workers had to meet their deadline last Saturday and worked until 7.00 p.m. but they did it. Today is 1st May, a holiday, and tomorrow the next step takes place, which will be the removal of our metal blinds until Autumn. However we have new special curtains so there will be no problem. I am perhaps a little bit grateful that the scaffolding does help to reduce the strength of the sun on our windows.
This week I have to make an appointment with the dentist – no big deal, just a check up. Otherwise life goes on, and who knows what little surprises are hovering around the corner.
