Actually, we are nearing the end of our 3 week Autumn School Holidays. As usual, i wait till the end to consolidate what we did.
So the first few days was given over to boring stuff like housework and grocery shopping. We did have fun at our usual Squash lesson and meeting a new friend at an indoor play-park we haven’t been to in ages.
Then we hit it big time at the annual Suisse Toy Fair; it’s a huge toy fair showcasing all the new toys, gadgets and games. Well, actually… we go every year and i have been noticing that it seems to be getting smaller. But still we had fun. Tobias invited his good friend to come along with us. We arrived there an hour after they opened, at 11am. i had expected to get out of there by 4pm. That didn’t happen – we left at closing – 6pm! We had a good time so it was worth the time and money.
The next day we joined some friends and headed out to the Juckerhof – a rather well-known pumpkin/fruit/veggie farm in the Zürich region. People go during this time of the year to see their spectacular pumpkin displays.
Tobias also volunteered to cook dinner one time that week – he cooked Spaghetti Bolognese. It was yum! He enjoys cooking – still a little fearful of the hot stove – but he did a good job and we tucked into a good dinner that evening. He has cooked other dinners before too… and i hope to help him learn more recipes and fall in love with cooking.
All in all it was a fun-filled week! Stay tuned for the 2nd installment.
For this week’s #happyhandmade, i choose crafts which reminded me of good stories i like. Some are pretty obvious and others take a little thought. Can you guess what stories they are?
