Good Morning


I made it, better late than never. My cleaning lady is hard at work and so was I, but my windows are now looking good and lunch is already cooking, so I can take it easy for a few minutes and tell everyone about life, although not very much is happening at the moment.

The family upstairs were moving out so there was a little bit of excitement with moving vans and the guys shifting it all. I also discovered two large bags of garbage in my garden cupboard, which I do not like hanging around, I moved one of them to the container this morning with my walker and the other is waiting for No. 1 son to rise from his bed to take care of the other. He is now two weeks at home for the rest of his holiday.

Otherwise I met the guy that is also dealing with a lift repairs and he told me that it would be working again this afternoon. I am so glad as I had to walk to the next entrance to get down to the garage and I also have a few things to shift to the car. We have two bags of a metal and glass which should be shifted to the depot in our village for disposal. Again I will be depending on son No 1 for his help.


Yesterday we had one of those spectacular sunsets so I just had to capture it with my camera around 9.00 in the evening. That is one of the advantages of having sunny weather throughout the day as we get the sun’s reflections on the sky in the evening.

I was at the store yesterday to get food supplies. When No. 1 son is here, just a piece of bread and cheese or salami is not his idea of an evening meal. He never eats cheese, but makes an exception for a piece of english cheddar sometimes in the evening.

I also had an interesting discussion with a fellow MS patient at the parking space in the supermarket. He has one of those super electronic scootermobiles. I have been thinking about getting one for some time, but would have to upload it in the garage where there are other people and do not want have complaints about everyone paying my electricity. The guy with the scooter told me it uses very little electricity and it has a range of 50 kilometres when fully loaded. My wheelchair only has a range of 25-30 although it is enough for my short journeys. It also travels faster than mine, but would cost more than my little car, so I decided to forget it for a while. And now I should move on. No photos from the garden today. I am hoping to have an excursion into town, but on the other hand it is too hot at the moment. Must see what the day brings and if I have the time. Tuesday afternoon is usually free if no-one has to go to the doctor.

Have a good day everyone, see you around somewhere on the flip side when I have sorted my daily life out.

  1. Ooooh the pictures of the sunset are so beautiful. It is foggy but cool here this morning ….it does not look like we are going to see a sunrise. But it is less humid and cooler which is really nice. They are replacing the asphalt covering on our street yesterday, today and tomorrow, they start at 6:45 am SHARP … yuk. It is the most ghastly sound when the machine comes along and claws up the top four inches (10 cm) of existing asphalt pavement … it sounds like a mining machine is coming up through the earth from China and breaking through. A terrible way to wake up in the morning, so today I decided to get up earlier and be ready for it. Yuk. Have a nice day . SLP

    • And we have had an out of order lift for the past two days which is very inconvenient for me. I have the garage on the lower floor and the laundry room.


  2. Pat, I was surprised to find very good cheddar in Switzerland – and also in France!
    I’m glad you manage well with your means of transport. I also think it’s good not to tempt any ‘discussions’ about the electricity for another vehicle – the Swiss can be generous but also very ‘pingelig’ about these things. And we like to be very ‘green’ – as long we are not asked to forego our own use of non-green means…. Where HH has a tiny flat right now (until we’ve sold our French home) it is absolutely incredible what kind of cars the people are driving. Tons of Chelsea tractors…. When we – in discussions – say that we’ll give our car to a
    French family in dire need of a working car, once we won’t need it any longer; they can’t get over it. Why would you do that? And our argument that we will be looking for a rental on the ground floor, with a garden (Sitzplatz) and being in the vicinity of shops & transports, they think us crazy. But surely you have the money to keep a car, maybe a small one?! Yes, we would, but with the money we will save for car & parking, we can rent a mobility car at any time we need and rent a car for the holidays and far away outings. Switzerland has such a terrific transport system anyway.
    And just to make sure this doesn’t sound like ‘I’m a better person than others’, I have no problem with anybody owning anything, it’s just our personal decision.

    • I could never understand that the Swiss (at least in our Kanton) have two official moving times in the year, end March and end September. If you want to move in between you pay the rent for the empty flat unless you can find someone that is approved by the flat owners, to take the flat over.

  3. Good Morning! I was actually a just a bit past midnight, but did not want to wait any longer. In the future, I hope to be getting to sleep even earlier like I used to do. In fact, I would prefer to sleep earlier in the night, and get up earlier in the morning like I used to do before it all got so crazy. Anyway, I am sort of caught up, just in time to get behind again. Gads!

    • Here it is 10.15 and I am still on the computer, this evening was a bit of stress – my own fault really. I went for a trip this afternoon in town and took 70 photos which I have been processing. Uploading on two external sites and organising them and now to upload on my backup on the computer. In between I watered the garden, and had to take my MS injection and catch up on the comments on my blogs. Now I have the laundry to hang up and afterwards a quick round up of my WordPress sites. Life can be so stressy sometimes.

  4. I was thinking about a scooter too because a good one can travel on grass, not just paving. But we are so broke I’m not even sure we are going to be able to live here much longer. So while we figure out what we are going to do with the rest of our lives, I think the scooter is a non-issue.

    Great sunset (sunrise?) shot!

    • The future gets very doubtful when you get older. If it weren’t for me, Mr. Swiss would probably have to go to a nursing home, but as long as I can manage we stay where we are. A scooter would also be a luxury for me. I am glad I managed to buy my car, my last and only big buy probably
