happy friendship day

Like last year we are still no big friends of Valentines Day….following up on the Finnish tradition on the 14th of February we do, however, wish all of our friends a Happy Friendship Day!! It is great to have you in our lives!

The weather in Zurich surprisingly showed itself from its best side today. It was such a beautiful day, causing real spring fever despite the patches of snow which are still around, so we took the train to Zurich and went for a walk along the lakeside. No matter when you are going for a walk along lake Zurich, it’s always crowded – it’s a place to relax, to enjoy, to listen to street musicians, to wander around and of course to see and be seen. On good days you have a beautiful view over the lake with the outline of the snowy mountains in the background (though today they were a bit misty). Now add a big, first ice-cream of the year and it’s perfect. So perfect one can even forget the numerous little tantrums of the offspring (something I’ll never understand: how can you throw a tantrum if you were just fed with ice-cream waffles??).




As soon as the sun set, it got real chilly again so after a proper airing of the flat to get rid of the winter fug we switched on the heating again and I might end the day with a hot chocolate. But oh, I do hope that we’ll have a few more sunny days coming up – it makes such a difference!!!

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.
