So here we are on the last day of 2012, and the last day of TipTopSwiss366.

I now own a Freitag bag, my neighbours finally greet me in (Swiss) German as much as they do in English and I get annoyed by untidiness, inefficiency and people and things being 'unpunktlich' so I'm certainly more Swiss than I was this time last year!

Happy New Year to you all!

My favourite lamp post in the park! Reminds me of Narnia but no sign of Mr Tumnus.

My lovely reindeer window art. It's our chosen way of making the house look festive with a minimum of mess and damage. It also stops us walking into the huge windows!
