Good Morning

Cows 26.04 (6)

Yesterday afternoon I was out again on the trail. It was sunny, but not as warm as it was, although I could get still make do with a t-shirt, but this time with short sleeves. The cows never seem to feel the cold  and they can relax anywhere.

I had my very first day yesterday doing my normal morninjg cleaning routine. I know it sounds stupid, but after being restricted for 4 four months recovering from a broken leg, you really feel good. I did it all in my usual half hour with no problems.  Admittedly I had to grip a few pieces of furniture on the way, to steady me, but that is not something our of the ordinary for me. I had my shower, got ready and felt good. Mr. Swiss was off for a small shopping trip and I realised that everything was done. I had some spare time and cleaned down all the doors. I have my routine and it is really only a 20 minute job and now I was really ready to go. Angloswiss is back.

Castle Waldegg

As usual my route took me passed the local castle Waldegg, but this time I shot it from another angle, at the side where the entrance is. I carried on the downhill path, around the bend, and visited my friends the chickens

and ducks

Ducks 26.04 (4)

I noticed that the pair of black swans were no longer there with the babies, or pehaps they were hiding somewhere in the shade. There were a couple of men working on the pond, so perhaps they wanted to escape the noise. I wheeled on further, through the burial ground and home. It was a few days since I had ventured out on a wheelie in my chair. The disadvantage is working on 50 photos afterwards, sorting them and uploading on the computer. Then there was the Eastenders, the only programme I like to watch on the TV. It might be a soap, but it is based on my home town area of London. There was a week-end shopping list to compose with Mr. Swiss consultation and eventually I dropped into bed, tired but happy.

There was interesting news on the TV yesterday. It seems that the Swiss Roche chemical concern have developed a new drug for MS treatment, known as Ocrevus. It is not a cure, but progress. It still has to be injected, but slows down he progression of the disease more than the medicine that I am now using. I read all the details in Internet. In Switzerland it is already available and will eventually be allowed for Europe. It was a complicated read from Internet, but at least research is being made. There will probably never be a cure in my lifetime, but improving symptoms is good.

And now to go on a safari in the appartment with all my work apparatus. It is so good to be able to do it again.

In the meanwhile I leave you with a view of the village church. Relax and have fun, we now have a week-end in front of us.

  1. We have a long weekend as today is a public holiday and so is 1 May 🙂 It all looks so tranquil there. Will you be able to buy and try the new medication soon?

  2. I totally understand about your celebrations for independence. After I had my neck surgeries, it was so wonderful when I could get in/out of the shower by myself, without my husband hovering nearby to make sure I didn’t fall. One step at a time…..but I celebrate ever single step. You go, Pat!

    • Thanks for that. I just read it to Mr. Swiss and he was nodding in approval after days of keeping an eye on me when I was in the shower. I can now do it alone, but we have a bath tub with shower attachment where I can sit. The shower would still be a little dangerous.

    • I manage OK now. At home I can walk with the stick and when I am cleaning, I manage almost without. I noticed that I am not comfortable with only the stick when I am out shopping and then I have to have the walker. Otherwise for camera trips I use the wheelchair as the distances are too much for me.

  3. What a lovely place. It doesn’t look like a castle — more like a huge country house. Whatever it is, it is lovely. It must be wonderful to be able to go to these close by places and see the lovely birds and the water and all. It’s raining, but hopefully not for too long.

    • It was built in the 18 century as a summer house for the French ambassador to Switzerland. It belonged to a Solothurn family for some time that were Swiss guards to the pope and now it belongs to our Kanton
