fingers crossed

Great events cast their shadows ahead! Next weekend, the little one will get baptised and Karsten and I will have our church wedding after already being married for two years. Our civil marriage two years ago was very short-notice with only the closest family (and not even all of them) attending. So we agreed that we’ll have a celebration with the whole family and our closest friends when we’ll do our church wedding. It was planned for last year. The restaurant was organised, the church booked, the invitations ready. And I discovered that I was pregnant. The estimated birthdate was 4 weeks before our planned wedding….

So we postponed the wedding, agreeing that we probably can’t enjoy the party if we have a four weeks old daughter. Gee, I can’t tell how glad I was about that decision!

This year we have another shot. Everything is ready (almost).

Two days ago, my sister and her family already arrived. Via night train. My little niece threw up all night during the trip (honestly, that must have been the most awful night on the train ever , not just because the conductor refused to supply them with a new mattress and a new blanket…). Now, two days later, my sister suffers from the same and my brother in law already feels sick, so it’s just a question of time. Of course we spent all day together yesterday before my sister started hugging the toilet.

So please, please have your fingers crossed that the little one and I won’t be next. I’ll be really frustrated if I can’t eat all the good food next weekend…

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.

  1. We really cross the fingers and I hope desinfecting and washing the hands after each contact will help to avoid the infection:-))) If you got the infect yesterday it will be over next week so the best thing will be no contact to infected family members what is easier to be said than to practice as I know. All the best Karin
