Good Morning


I am not sure how this morning will progress so I am taking things as they come. On Saturday morning Mr. Swiss lost a tooth – no big deal really,, no pain, but mainly inconvenience. These things always happen at the week-end when no-one is available to help. It is now Monday morning so he will be calling to dentist for an appointment and I am not sure if and when I have to play chauffeur to get him there. At the moment I am carrying on as usual. I am sure the dentist is not waiting for Mr. Swiss so I might have time. I am not keen on morning emergencies as I like my routine at the computer and having breakfast. I also have to shower and get ready.  At the moment Mr. Swiss went back to hugging the bed and I am doing what I always do. Looks like another sunny day today, although the weather gurus say there is a cold front coming.


I discovered a brave carnation in my garden this morning, although it looks like it had to fight its way to be seen. Perhaps there might be a few more appearing.

It was a lovely visit by No. 2 son with his family yesterday, although I discovered 2 year olds can be quite exhausting. He is now making first steps at communication with his own language, his dad’s German dialect and naturally his mum’s vocabulary.  It is quite amusing to see how he sorts it all out. I never thought my offsprings would be speaking a different language to mine, but after 50 years in a polyglot country like Switzerland you are ready for everything.

Things going as normal today, I will be off shopping this afternoon, although I must go shopping come what may. I will just have to fit it in somewhere. Sometimes I just long for a life where there are no musts, just wants.  I always have to check at the beginning of the week whether Mr. Swiss or I have a doctor’s appointment. Getting old is not always fun. Even we have our stress situations.


I noticed this swan family on the river at the week-end and I am sure they are the swans I saw nesting on the river bank with their eggs. The cygnets would now be at the stage with their still brown feathers and there were 5 eggs in the nest.

Perhaps only three chicks made it. I love see the swan families, they are always so perfectly organised.

And now I must organise my life. Mr. Swiss is still hugging the bed and I have time to do what I want to.


My garden is looking good with the rudbeckia, sedum and reeds which decided to make their home there.

Take care, have a good week beginning, and hope to be around later, whatever the day brings.

  1. Oddly enough, the temperature has dropped here, too. I actually had to go down and check whether or not we have oil. We have just under half a tank, which is pretty good. We keep the house pretty cold so it save both electricity and oil. It’s going to get almost freeze level tonight and tomorrow — but it’ll be back up and almost like summer on Friday,

    About the ONLY thing you can have help for medically on a weekend here ARE for teeth. We have dental clinics that work all the time. I usually wait for my own dentist. I don’t trust the other ones. Good luck with the tooth!

    • We had another pleasant sunny day yesterday, not a cloud in the sky. I am still watering the garden, we have not had any rain for some time.
      We have a good dentist. He now has to go again in a couple of weeks to have it fixed. A reconstruction job involving other teeth. One of the golden oldie problems for 80 year olds.
