It’s taken us two weekends to move it, and 8 hours to build it, but it’s finally all done! 


What’s more, the child likes it! 

Camille, Lam and Ben on the bus to school.

Child is back from scout camp. We think that he had a good time (except for the part where his quadhelix came loose) but we can’t be certain. He seemed happy when he came off the boat and while they were doing the shout outs. Then came tears when he realised that he misplaced one of his badges. Then came the angst about not knowing what he wanted for dinner. Then came the Litany Of Woes (he gets that from his mom) about how Everything Hurts, and how Everything Went Badly, and how Everyone Was Mean, and how he wants another week of holiday before going back to school because, otherwise, What’s The Point…. 

So yes, my little drama llama is back.

Kodo – One Earth Evolution, Geneva, March 14

We’ll need to get the child some ear defenders, but I think he’ll get a kick out of both shows.

And, for the grown-ups only, an evening of burlesque in Geneva this coming November. 

Katy and I went for brunch at the Café de Grancy in Lausanne this morning. It really reminded us of Eggspectation, but with a nicer vibe. We had croissant, fresh bread and brioche that should come with a warning label it was so moreish. I had an English-y breakfast and Katy had smoked salmon, Asian-y salad and pesto toast. The service was a bit slow but the food was excellent. We’ll definitely go again. 

The child is on his way to France for a week long scout camp. Hope he’ll have a grand old time and the weather holds. Also hope he’s not too much of a drama llama. 

It’s mah birfday and my family has spoiled me! I walked into the flat to a birthday cake and a rousing (and off-key) song, then I officially got my new phone, and some prezzies that were completely unexpected, such as gin, chocolate, gin, smelliest and a new wallet. Yay!!!

Now I will probably need to have words with my wife about over-spending, but not tonight.

He liked it and says he’d go again. This is a success!

Sushi, gin and friends. Ingredients for a great evening. 

We went to Schilliger and they had the butterfly enclosure.
