Much of a muchness

Things that make you go 'hmm'…

I’m off….

This is just a very short post to let you know that I am off to Crans Montana in Switzerland for a holiday and as I am not taking my laptop, I shan’t be posting for a while. I haven’t had time to make a book today as I have spent much of today packing. Nightmare. I am rubbish at it. I get out a mountain of clothes – everything I think I might conceivably need and then spend hours discarding half of it, packing and repacking until I am thoroughly sick of it. I need a holiday by the time I have finished. I just know I will still have forgotten to pack something vital too, but at least I’m not as bad as this guy!

Anyway, here are a couple of shots of Crans Montana, so you can picture where I am going. The third photograph is a lunch I had last time I was there. It’s called something like ‘croute au trois ètages’. It’s bread with ham and an egg, covered in a yummy cheesy wine sauce. Disgustingly delicious and fattening and completely irresistible.


I’m going to leave you ladies with two of my very favourite things which I happened to come across on Youtube.

I give you – Gotan Project and George Clooney. Together. For 7 minutes.

    Susanne – thank you! Fondue, raclette, croute au trois etages – I feel the weight piling on just thinking about it! Not many healthy salads on offer. And then there’s Easter eggs…….

    Dunn – thank you. Have a good week too :-)

    Have a good, safe trip!! Ooooh, maybe George will be vacationing in the same spot at the same time?! One can hope. :)

    Can’t wait for you to come back with good photos and new books!

    Lovely snow pictures…lovely Clooney video…I’ll pass on that ham, cheese and egg dish. I’m not fond of eggs, fried, boiled scrambled or whatever. I know very strange for someone who would eat sushi, okra, octopus, squid, or try fried bugs.

    Now that I’ve grossed you out. I hope you have a good holiday. ;-)

    See You Diane, have a nice vacation and a peaceful Easter. Watch the calories and the temptation to over eat. Stay healthy! :-) –Durano, done!
