Christmas continued.... The Turner Horlachers come to stay....

My lovely friend Jane and family have moved back to Germany after 16 years in California and they visited us from Boxing Day to the 28th. It was so great to catch up. Lots of food and chats.

We took several walks round Zurich, firstly to Parapdeplatz and the Credit Suisse Christmas tree. Our children wanted to stay in the tree and be Christmas Elves! Also a trip up the Grossmünster to enjoy the views.

Then we did a lovely Uetliberg walk on the 27th - my normal route - all the kids incl. Patrick managed it (there was a fair bit of whinging though!). Then a lovely fondue in the Felsenegg restaurant, before the cable car back down.

On their last day, we went to the Lindenhof where the kids enjoyed the swings and the chess boards, then a walk through the old town in search of sausages...

After they left, we have been mostly getting up late, lazing around on the sofa, building lego & occassionally going outside for a walk or football. Perfect!
