A sure sign Spring is here (and oh so very small town Switzerland): the cows are out in the field again… our apartment is on the same street and old Mabel and her friend’s bells make a hell of a noise while they dine at 4am!!
My absolute favourite part** of Spring, of course has to be the hayfever. The teary eyes, the sore throat and constant sneezing leading everyone on the train to think to have bad case of Swine Flu and looking at you like a diseased leper. Not to mention the light-headedness from the multiple anti-histamines (cos one is just not enough!) and everyone constantly looking at you with pity then laughing and thanking the Universe that they don’t have to suffer like you do.
Ah yes, I love, love, love Spring!! >bah humbug<

I’ve not been a good blogger of late. Though, mind you, I did blog a fair amount when I was home ill last week.
Today, in spite of the drizzly weather, I’m wearing a pair of Nine West Leather peep toe shoe-boots. Along with it (since everyone gets dressed from their shoes up, right?) a pair of wide leg suit trousers and fitted three quarter sleeve polo neck jumper. To complete the outfit, Swarovski’s Domination range of earrings and matching necklace (I decided wearing the matching bracelet was a tad OTT, better suite for a night out) and casually draped around my neck, a grey cashmere scarf. (While on holiday in South Africa recently I saw the same shoe-boot in gold on sale at Nine West, bit too garish for me, but at least cheaper than what I paid for these in London.
I love this shoe-boot as it works well in Winter and could do for a night out in Summer (sans tights, of course), they’re super comfortable too!
Happy Friday everyone!
I had a wonderful day at the Badi with ms-mac and the mac-lings on Wednesday, though I’ve realised just how unfit I am. I take my hat off to ms-mac, she is amazing, full of stamina and strength and the epitome of grace. She also has miles and miles of patience who as wonderful as they are a handful.
We had a fantastic time and I came home exhausted and somewhat sore, serves me right for being so unfit! We’re going to try and keep a fixed swimming date, let’s hope I am diligent enough to get healthier!
I did not venture near that slide at all, though I have been informed that ms-mac has braved it numerous times!
Today I went off in search of the infamous Teddy-Summer project which has had world wide media interest and coverage (I’ve even heard about it on South African radio) I managed to photograph about 120 of the 600+ bears, though I did skip a few that didn’t quite interest me.
It being such a hot summer’s day here in Zurich; had everyone out and about and the streets were full. I enjoyed most, watching little kids’ reactions to the bears – most could not resist touching them and you often saw little ones giving the bears a hug. When I could I took a picture of them, trying to avoid large(r) German women who I was convinced would pummel me!
I plan to head back out tomorrow and find more bears, and will post on the subject again over the next few days. Today’s collage though, are the kids and kid themed bears.
