Edinburgh Yarn Festival


it was a quick trip to Edinburgh over the last weekend. But I hardly saw anything of the City, instead I saw my friends at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival!





At the sight of so much yarn our hearts started to beat faster …

In every corner you saw people knitting, what a lovely scene


Saturday evening was reserved for a woolly program, a ca-baa-ret with Felicity Ford


and what does one do at the girls night out? Knit of course!


On Sunday evening it was time for our own cabaret. It was our last evening together but we all will meet in Shetland this fall, what a comfort!

Staff Day Out


It was absolutely a perfect winter day for our staff day out. We had chosen Motta Naluns as a place to be, since you can do all sorts of winter sports there. We were about thirty of us and the most went skiing, some walking and some sledging.P1040834P1040916P1050053

We all met for lunch again and enjoyed the food, the weather, the scenery and being together

Chalandamarz was celebrated yesterday in Scuol.  Chalandamarz is when children ring their cowbells to drive the winter and coldness away. The children also sing Chalandamarz songs to welcome the spring. Here some impressions


Our senior care center offers hot chocolate and sandwiches for the kids.  Our senior citizens can be part of the community and the kids just love Charlie’s (our cook) hot chocolate! Me too.P1040886P1040903P1040900P1040896Chars salüds
