Thursday…The sun was shining

Although it has been raining quite a lot since the photo was taken at the weekend! I took the plunge and ordered some garden furniture so I can take advantage of the patio! (If you look closely, you will see the obligatory glass of beer!) It also came in useful for a surprise visit from […]

Monday… Sunny Lausanne

It has been a while since I last updated the blog – a busy couple of weeks, although this week I find myself back in Lausanne visiting friends again. All is quiet on the health front – my next check-up is at the opthalmic clinic next week, but life has been far from quiet! In […]

Friday… The last ECP?

It is about time I wrote a longer blog, and I did promise some photos from my trip to Lausanne. I did wonder if I was going to be able to go at one point – two days before departure I walked into the living room at home, and noticed a damp carpet. Closer inspection […]

Wednesday… from Lausanne

Just a brief update on the blog as the Christmas decorations are put away for another year! I had an excellent New Year in Lausanne, and for the last two days I have been up in the mountains at Leukerbad (Loèche-les-Bains). This is a natural thermal spa resort about 1,400m above sea level. Yesterday was […]

Saturday… New Year’s Day 2011!

It has been a busy and event filled year, and as yet no annual newsletter has been produced – one of the jobs to do later this year when I get a little time. Christmas was very good with lots of guests for the Christmas period, but for New Year I find myself in Switzerland, […]

Saturday… Christmas Day

And may I wish all my readers a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas. And it has been a peaceful day here. We are eating late this year, because Rachael has been at work, so we had a big breakfast and then a quiet day. We had a houseful last night, and then a brief visit […]

Wednesday… still cold!

Most of the snow has gone, although this was the scene that greeted me last Friday after a heavy early morning snowfall! It was very pretty, and the sun came out mid morning, shining through the branches of the trees in the back garden. I managed to get this photo during the brief moments of […]

Saturday… Lots of catching up!

Phew, where to start? It has been a couple of weeks since I last “blogged” so there is quite a bit of catching up to do! The biggest adventure was a 12 day trip out to France with friend Mark, to his house for a working party. We drove over on Monday the fourth via […]

Sunday… Alors, je suis revenu!

A bit of a posting gap I’m afraid, but it was ten days of much needed chilling – well, working with Mark on his house. It was also an opportunity to try out a new camera, and I will upload some more photos to the gallery in due course. In fact the whole blog software […]

Saturday.. update time!

We are now back in UK – seems hard to believe that it is over a week since I last posted! The weekend in France proved a little damp, but by Monday the weather improved and we went on a trip to Perigeaux. We have been there before with Mark, but only as far as […]
