If your husband stands next to your neighbour’s garden and you think he is joking when he tells you that he sets fire to it in order to burn the weeds which have been happily blooming and seeding away this summer, and if you then after some minutes recognise that it smells burned and you notice that your husband wasn’t joking but that he indeed set fire to the weeds after weeks and weeks of heat wave, then his action can only be excused by heat exhaustion…
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.

Wait… what?????? Honestly? Wow… how did you put it out? Garden hose?
– I admit that the continued heat somewhat softens the brain… a colleague of mine says the brain stops working above 27°C. I can confirm that.
Garden hose, exactly. Maybe that was the real reason why Karsten bought it? But don’t worry, there weren’t any flames…just some minor playing with fire. Still, it reminded me that living with this man will never be dull 😉
