Where did Spring go?

Spring came last week & hurried away today – i’m hoping & praying that Spring has only gone away for today! It snowed the whole morning!, actually off & on for the whole day! There is a layer on the ground now – it wasn’t like snow flurries – it was big fat heavy flakes of snow!! Why is it snowing in April? Isn’t April Springtime when flowers come & the sun is shining?!! i just heard on my mums network that someone said there was 3 feet of snow one Easter 5 years ago. Well, i really hope that this is not the case now.

Here are some pics:

Temps forecast will be minus in the mornings for the next couple of days, things look to be warming up for the weekend & next week – sigh! Let’s hope it does & stays warm like Spring should be.

Spring is finally here!!

YES! Spring is finally here! The sun came out today for the whole day & temps reached at least 18 – WOW!! Yippy!!! It was great – i was walking around outside with just a spaghetti top with a light sweater over! So great to be able to take Tobi to the playground without putting 4 layers of clothes on him – just 2 light ones was good for today.
Here’s a photo of Tobi enjoying the sunshine:

i’m a bit sad that the weather forecast is saying that temps will drop with some rain on Tuesday – but it looks to pick up again towards the weekend so that’s good. As long as temps stay above 10, i’m happy.

More about Tobi

It has been a while since our last post – so what’s been up??
Well, we’ve been trying to settle back into our routine here in cold cold Switzerland. Oh,ok it’s now not all that cold cold anymore – just windchill is hard to bear sometimes. Temps are around 7 to 10 so not really warm (to me anyhows). Really wish Spring would hurry & get here! Had lots of housework to catch up on & of cos emails too (even with checking periodically in Singapore didn’t help lower the load too much). & of cos we also had to change classes for Gymboree. & then there is some stuff happening at church too. So we’ve been busy.

Now to Tobi – he… well, he is not 100% – for our christian friends please pray that for a 100% restoration of his health – his little penis is painful – has been for the last 2 weeks – we’ve seen the doc twice already & he says to wait & see cos this sort of thing normally heals itself (a very Swiss doctor type thing to say – they are very much into the body healing itself). It does seem to have improved a little – so we’ll be waiting another week to see how it goes.

Now to more cheerful stuff – here’s a photo of Tobi with one of his “galfriends”:

Naomi is such a little cutie – parents are Swiss & Thai so she got the best of both worlds – don’t you agree?
