A Great Start to the Year

Christoph and I have spent the last few days visiting family and friends in Switzerland and southern Germany. It's been a tight schedule but we were so happy to have had the chance to meet up with those we saw. To you- Thank you for having the time to catch up with us :-)

One of my Swiss highlights is always when I visit with RR and HR. They live in a small village but have a wonderful set up in a renovated farmhouse. We always feel very spoilt whenever we are here, especially me as RR and I spend a lot of time together crafting or cooking. As a group, we share lots of laughs, enjoy furious debates and share decadent home-cooked meals. On this visit, RR and I made fresh pasta for one of our meals. To use our very own hands to make something that so many of us take for granted - dry pasta in a box - was so satisfying and great fun that I'm already looking forward to the next visit!
