Going Swiss: Loved It!
September: Has been and almost gone but what warmth and sunshine we have enjoyed.
Recovery: Well on the way, not as fast as I would like, but slow is best.
Retirement: Is going OK, and started with a great emotional and fun BBQ (on the only wet day in September) for friends and family and ex-colleagues. Everyone contributed to a Retirement Bucket List for me, and it’s going to be fun working through them. I might just share a few here as I tick them off!
The first one was to travel first class, and enjoy a new city, so off I went by train to Zurich to meet an Australian friend that I had not seen for 35 years. Did we talk and walk??? Oh yes!
What did I love about Zurich and Switzerland?
Gorgeous, good looking people
Mega efficient trains, trams and buses and boats
Sitting in awe of so many Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Kandinsky, Braque originals in the art gallery in Zurich. A great place to spend a wet day.
Bircher muesli ( watch this space for a recipe soon)
Cows and their bells
Waking up to seeing the Eiger from under its north face
Stunning views from the loo
My bucket list continues: Take a photo every day, and put together a family cook book, and write here once a week, and grow old with someone I love, and visit New Zealand, and get a driving licence for a pram……
And there are sometimes I don’t feel like doing anything, other than just being grateful.
