these days…

….we are busy with watching boats, playing in the sand, admiring cousins (the little one), visiting open-air museums (ok, just one, but my favorite one), drinking non-alcoholic cocktails, waking up and going to sleep with the sound of the seagulls, picking strawberries (Northern Germany is almost two months behind our Swiss garden season, so we just stepped from one finished strawberry season into a new one), running around barefoot, avoiding stomach bugs, removing splinters from tiny feet, petting goats, lying in the hammock, watching movies, listening to the little one’s newest words and enjoying a fresh breeze while the rest of Germany and Switzerland suffers from over 35°Celsius (a possible third child will be born in early spring, that’s for sure). Pictures will follow later next week when I’ll have proper internet access again. Cheerio, everyone!

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.

    Sounds like heaven! Enjoy your time there 🙂

  3. I am really jealous sitting at 35 °C in the dark house being unable to go outside where we have no shadow during the day:-) I am glad you don’t have to suffer from the heat!!!

    Birth in spring is definitely very recommendable 😀 Worked fine for us and we’re SO glad not to be pregnant right now… although little “Schnügi” is probably cursing us for it because now HE has to suffer the heat 😉

    How does avoiding stomach bugs work exactly? Dodge them as they come in sight?

    Anyway, enjoy your time and get home in one piece (instead of two) 😉

      I don’t believe you that “Schnügi” can actually complain, not to mention curse his parents 😉 He is probably taking the heat stoically and looking at things or sleeping. (Karsten)
