Good Evening

Another dull boring day today with constant rain. I did not go anywhere, there was no need to. Christmas is at last over, although the radio stations, at least the British ones, are still constantle chiming out the Christmas songs and carols. I will really be glad when everything returns to normal Since Mr. Swiss has been away, almost a month now, I have become the general factotum for everything. Today I had to pay a bill online for a company in Germany. Now that was something completely different, but I even conquered that one. And our printer refused to print. It can scan documents and print them, but direct from the computer it is a failure. I have six documents in the queue on the computer waiting to arrive but no luck. I was on the phone to Mr. Swiss in his clinic and he said it was probably something quite simple, but from a distance he could not help.

The only thing functioning today was my bird visitors pecking around for what they might find.

Yesterday when I was on the phone to Mr. Swiss he told me that they have a restaurant in the home where he is and one of the nurses said he could have a coffee there, but he did not want to. I reminded him that he has a 100 france note in his purse. He was quite surprised. On the day that he left for the clinic everything happened so quickly. We have no real cash at home, living on plastic cards, but my No. 1 son had a hundred franc note which I gave No.2 son to give to Mr. Swiss before he left with the taxi so that he would have something, but it was all forgotten in the meanwhile. Mr. Swiss called me back to say he found the one hundred francs and he has now organised some chocolate for in between from their shop. He was quite happy about that. At least he will survive until next week when he returns home.

I did make myself busy by baking a bread this afternoon, although I will put it on one side for tomorrow. We still had some bread left from the week-end.

And that is my news of the day. I will now move on and wish everyone the best of the day.
