Allegra was the last ( and the only word he was able to say) word Bruno said to me as I visited him in the hospital after his Stroke.
Bruno is, was my father-in-law, who died a week before Christmas. he was a kind man always in a good mood and he was the most keen person to read my blog. Every time I had written something I got a mail next day with his comments and thanks to keep him posted of what is going on here in the mountains.
We all really miss him so much.
We spent the Christmas together and there was not a day we did not think about or talked about Bruno. It did us all good.
I wish you all Bun On – happy New Year, you too Bruno, where ever you watch us. Chars salüds
My lovely daughter Natasha became a mama, and I am Nonna now!! I am over the moon , happy and just happy again, and again
Lovely Ella Jill
Auntie Anastasia with Ella
Don’t you agree, she is the most beautiful little baby (poppa as we say here in vallader) in the world!
back to Switzerland, where we had quite a lot of snow during the last two days.
I so miss Ella
First we moved to our new not quite finished house and then we left for the vacation. We left everything unpacked and just took off towards Finland.
Anton and Oskar came with us
We enjoyed the finish nature
life on the island
Anton and Oskar enjoyed their friend Elli
new and old finish architecture, church in Helsinki
staircase in Design Museum in Helsinki
and everybody loves ice-cream
the marketIt was good to see so many friends and family. Big thank you and hugs for all of you who gave us bed and food and good company.
most of the time our weekends have three components
although it is hot in these altitudes too, we try to do some hiking. Like once again Muottas Muragl and this Sunday we hiked through Bergell, from Casaccia to Soglio
2. Friends and Family
Eat good food in good company, all I need! (the food comes naturally with good wine)
yes, the moving day is getting closer … I have been packing for ages and there are heaps left to do but soon, very soon we have a new home.

Easter is our family meeting time and as always we drove to Holland and to see our children and their partners.
The weather was not so good but we enjoyed the day at the beach none the less
especially Anton and Oskar. I think they felt like being in paradise, meeting lots of other dogs, running around and playing together
Like every year, a good meal in a restaurant
buy buy all our dears, see you soon again! A revair!
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!
wish you all woolly, warm week
A quick visit to the finnish winter, a dark winter as it is in January. The daylight was just a short period of the day but the winter days were even in -20°C beautiful.
during the breakfast we could watch the nature documentary live outside the kitchen window
I loved the Jyväskylä airport’s crafts
and indeed, the sun showed itself
back in Switzerland it is all about sunny winter days
and my latest wreath – a winter wreath
have a nice week
