FOWC with Fandango: Property

Estate 23.07.2018

What is growing in the landscape in our area? Yes, we are in Switzerland and in Switzerland everything is organised. You cannot just build where you want to, it must fit into the surroundings.

You must show the outlines of what you wish to build at least 3 months ahead before the building work begins. It might be the case that someone does not want this high building planted opposite where he lives. I noticed myself when these poles appeared that I was not in complete agreement. with the height. It means that my view of the tall trees opposite is now reduced to only the top halves. Mr. Swiss finds this is not so important, but he is Swiss.

However, someone did have a problem with something and raised an objection. These poles appeared in April and only this week were they removed, meaning that the objection has now been dealt with by the local council with a building delay, and has not been given permission. Now the building work can begin.

We will now have trucks moving back and forth, excavators digging holes and cranes being erected to complete a new property for housing people. The property will be bought flats, as ours, but will they be sold? In Switzerland we have far too many empty apartments, because they have been building everywhere and everyone already has what they need.

RDP Friday: Snooze

Waltham Abbey 15.07 (5)

How to snooze in Walthem Abbey in England.

I snooze every day in the afternoon
After dinner I like to swoon
I relax in my bed and then fall asleep
Oh what a lovely feeling to collapse in a heap
Just doing nothing and taking a break
Ignoring the world and not having to wake
Today I was tired from cooking the food
I had to relax to get in the right mood
And now I am awake and ready to go
Although I am not sure where, I will take it real slow
Sitting at the desk and writing a blog
is making me feel tired, although I should really unclog
But what is the point, I will only get the blues
I think I will return to bed and have another snooze

 RDP Friday: Snooze

Good Morning

New Hostpital Building 15.11.2018

I am still stuck with hospital photos as it is the only place I have been over the last few days. Our hospital is quite big, but apparently not big enough and since a couple of years buiding is going on and a new building is being added to the buildings we already have. The original building is now quite old, and the newer was built about 50 years go, and now we have something more. We have a choice of general (6 people in a room), 2nd class (2 patients in a room) and the new building will only accommodate first class patients and 2nd class, if you can afford it. I have always been general. I like an audience when I am in hospital and time passes better when you have people to talk to. the nurses and doctors are very friendly and helpful.

Chinese Restaurant Dornacherplatz 15.11 (2)

Since I have been back and forth to the hospital for various infusions, I pass through a different part of the town, the suburban part. On the way is our first Chinese restaurant. We have two in town, but I must admit I have never eaten there.

Solothurn Station 15.11.2018

The area is a bit more modern built than our old town and here we are approaching the main station before turning left at the front. Just the normal street scenes in any town.

Today I hope for a more normal day. I composed my shopping list yesterday and have to go to the chemists to pick up my tablets for today and tomorrow and then it is finished. They wanted me to go to the hospital today for another infusion, but I said no way. I have shopping to do and other stuff on Friday and the doctor said no problem, I can now take tablets. I must say it all helps and I no longer have such discomfort, just a little giddy now and again.

Tomorrow I have visitors as No. 2 son, his wife and my grandson will be visiting for the day. I hope to get some better photos today, although I do not plan on going anywhere this afternoon. Now to the usual clean through and shower. I might not be around so much tomorrow, so no alarms if a post or two are not existent.


Our cat Tabby has already made his first morning walk and it seems everything is under control in the territory so what could possibly go wrong, and I will now be on my way to make my first walk with the vaccum cleaner. Mr. Swiss has already uttered a profanity because he had to empty the Dyson, but it is now ready for me. Oh the problems of a housewife.

Have a good day everyone and keep calm, no matter what. Tomorrow is again week-end.

And some flowers from the neighbour’s garden.
