Good Morning


Actually it is evening again, although you will see it tomorrow morning (my time of course). Again fate has played with my “me” time and I am condemned to another action packed morning.

I do not always hear my telephone when it rings as I mignt be elsewhere, cleaning a toilet or perhaps a kitchen, even in the shower or making a bed. So is life, but at least it is not boring. I suddently saw two calls from an unknown capacity. If there are two calls it means for me call back. Someone somewhere wants to speak with me. Yes indeed, it was the company instructed to deliver and fit my new oven. The delight of the whole thing is that they will be doing it tomorrow morning. Pro forma I asked when, but these handworkers always like to get the job started early, so of course they will arrive at around 8.00 am, meaning yet another lost morning. No comfortable breakfast with a computer, but eat and get ready for the visitors.


This is what they will be replacing. At the bottom is the oven. It is about 10 years old and the switches no longer function but tend to lose contact, meaning if I do not sit in front of the oven whilst it is cooking, it might switch itself off and nothing will be cooked.

I decided at the same time to have the micro wave replaced. This is 20 years old and would be pefect if it was not for the fact that due to one of my “accidents” I knocked the glass covering door off which broke in many tiny glass pieces. These micro wave things operate with a mystical heat and who knows what strange rays of energy have been escaping in the meanwhile.

And so the beginning of my day is ruined.

Otherwise today went quite well. Mr. Swiss now has a full tooth repair and can smile again showing all of his pearly teeth. He even had time after the appointment to go to the shop to get himself two pairs of trousers. He discovered that jeans are no longer jeans but have curious names today like “chinos” which are apparently the lighter coloured trousers. He also found that the slim leg is now fashion. After losing so much weight (about 30 kilo) he really needs something more suitable.

Autumn Trees 25.10 (4)

OK, I am cheating with this photo, it was taken a little more than a year ago, and then we had an Autumn. This year it still looks like a dying summer outside.

And so life goes on and I cannot wait to see the rest of the surprises for this week. Mr. Swiss did mentioned that next Monday at 4.30 p.m. he will have the final dental appointment to remove the stitches and to see how it has all resulted. Another disturbance to my day, as I am usually at that time in the supermarket shopping. On Monday in that case, as an exception, I will be doing the shopping in the morning. Oh happy days.

And now I will leave you with another wonderful evening view of our estate, without moon, but its light is being shed by the sinking sun. Enjoy the day ahead and may it be smooth runnings.

    • Oven has already been used and functions well. Also the new microwave, Mr. Swiss was always a little overweight, but 30 Kg is a lot. I remember my dad also losing so much weight when he crossed the 80 year old line.
