Somehow, up there in the Alps, I seem to be energised. No matter how weary I may be, I have the energy and inclination to do things. To get out and walk. To look up and around with eyes open wide. You know?? Reality is a little too real at the moment.
I woke this morning with a headache. By 11 it was a mega headache and I went back to bed and slept for 3 hours. I think my head is telling me something. Work tomorrow. I don't want to go. I am officially moping. I am sulking. I want to be back in the mountains. I feel like a 4 year old, and want to throw myself on the floor and screech. Unfortunately, I am old enough to know that tantrums don't work.
So here are a few more photos anyway. This is the snow, frozen. I loved the way the sun made it glisten like scattered diamonds .
And this was on my walk along the frozen river up the valley.......
David and I walked around the lake on afternoon, as the cloud was drifting up from the valley below.
He was throwing snowballs about....
See the wispy cloud....and how it changes the scenery. The sun shone most of the time, and then suddenly you were in cloud again, then out it came......lovely.
And here is the frozen waterfall, which we visited on the last day. We couldn't get closer, because the path was solid ice, but when we got home, Peter and Glynis said that there was another path which we could have taken. Sigh. Oh well. It is stunning from a distance too!
And David does not feel the cold. At all. He looks quite crazy, walking about with a tshirt on and no jacket. And he stays remarkably healthy too.
So there you have the Swiss trip. I did take 400 + photos, might I add, so I have been very restrained! We walked miles, and we watched the babes toboggan, we went down to Luzern to do some shopping and to visit a friend in hospital too. We prepared supper together, drank masses of coffee and tea and hot chocolate. Lots of chatting, and lots of company. My family are exceptional hosts, and my friends loved spending time with them. So did I.
It was not long enough. Not at all. I know that everyone had the most wonderful time, and all want to go back again as soon as possible. I also know that I am so lucky to have my sister living there, and the opportunity to visit often. But it doesn't stop me wanting to be there all the time!
Ok. Tomorrow we are back to normal, and I will start looking forward instead of back again. The moping will stop. I hope.
