These were really a delight to hear
And this was something completely different, in Marrakesh, Morocco
The largest falls in Switzerland, Schaffhausen Rheinfall and they really make a noise.
She walked off in a rage. She was never allowed to keep her eggs.
In my days as a first aid person, I would change the mask on the doll we used for our resuscitation exercises based on hygiene. We had a collection of masks in the group and would sterilise them after use.
We are no longer unmasked so much. We do not use them on dummies anymore. We wear them ourself to keep us and the others protected. I left my first aid group a few years ago. I wonder if they still practice with these masks. Now they have the real thing.
Later this morning, but I was not in a hurry. I now have a cleaning lady again. I missed her during lockdown, but we are now safer and I am getting used to the new norm. She told me she was still cleaning here and there, but not so much. We were all keeping our distance. She lives alone in one of our lovely villages and does not mix with too many people. She was glad to see us again, although no hand shaking. I always leave her to the work when she is here: the kitchen, bathroom and shower, and that works fine for me. She is very good and does the work well. Yes. welcome back Lucia, lovely to see you again.
Otherwise it will be a bit of a “nothing to say” this morning. I had some organising to do with my financial online stuff and that worked perfectly. When I called I had to go through the telephone routine of pressing button 1, 2, 3 or 4 for my preferred language. No. 4 is english which they also now have as a choice. That was really something new, as we only had the three Swiss languages (German, French and Italian) up to now. I went for 1, which is German as I understand the expressions better. I had a nice guy and he got into my computer online finance programme and showed me what to do. He was not able to do anything himself, for security reasons, but it really worked well as I could follow his instructions. I had to write a few short sentences in German, but that was when I told him to dictate what I should write, as my written German is not so perfect: too many grammar rules to follow. I must say he was really helpful.
And now back to the normal daily work, although today I am on a morning holiday. My cleaning lady is working for me and I am taking it easy.
I will be back later in the day, after cooking lunch. Have a good one everyone.
I once had the chance to visit Marrakesh in Morocco with my husband’s company. Although it was many years ago, I have never forgotten it. This photo was taken just outside of Marrakesh, and I found it again when entering the word “everywhere”. I had written that it was typical Marrakesh and there was the customary red earth everywhere. The mountains in the distance are the beginnings of the Atllas mountains.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain!
