Share Your World – May 22, 2017

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?

I have been there, done it and at the age of 70 no longer have any great ambitions. I am glad for every day I can look out of the window.

How often do you get a haircut?

Heidi and me - at the hairdressers

Meet Heidi, the lovely lady that is not only my hairdresser, but my friend. My hair just needs a good cut every 6-8 weeks, according to how long and fast it grows and she cuts it perfectly.  I like to keep my hair short. She listens to what I say, and during the operation, we talk, she snips and suddenly she is finished. I am the victim taking the photo.

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search or numeric puzzles?

And now back to Heidi and the hairdresser. To prevent her customers getting impatient whilst waiting for the haircut, she had a jigsaw puzzle in the window of her saloon that you could help to piece together to break the waiting. In this case from the choice above I would choose the jigsaw puzzle online on my iPad. I also quite like a game of Scrabble if the mood takes me.

How many cities have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.

I grew up in London in the house where my mother and her sisters and brother were born. After my dad returned from the war he moved into the top floor of the house as it was empty and that is where I grew up: 45 Norah Street, Bethnal Green, London E.2 – I can still remember the address. I left at the age of 20 for Switzerland and lived 2 years in Zürich where I was also working. I changed my job, but remained in Switzerland, and then lived in Zuchwil, a small village. I met Mr. Swiss, moved in with him, eventually got married and we were living in Solothurn which is the capital town of Kanton Solothurn in Switzerland. Zuchwil is one of the small villages on the edge of Solothurn.

Today I live in Feldbrunnen, another small village next to the town of Solothurn. I no longer plan to move anywhere else.

What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  I am glad to get the last week behind me. Too many appointments and changes of routine. I had to go to the dentist, Mr. Swiss had to go to the dentist, and I had to do the week-end shopping on my own. I managed OK, as I had the car, but no longer have as much energy as I used to when putting the shopping in the car and removing it at home.

This week it looks like the pre summer weather has arrived. Nice and warm and comfortable. I have no plans, am not going places, and will take it easy. The week began well with a wonderful evening walk with the camera. No stress, no other wanderers around. I sat on a bench at the local cemetery took a few photos and was completely alone except for the birds singing in the trees.
