We visited Switzerland last year whilst touring Europe in the car. Unfortunately we could only afford two nights, we stayed in a place called Vitznau, it truly was the highlight of our 5 weeks. The views of the mountains and lakes and the ride in the mountain cog train will stay in my memories for ever. We will definitely be back but for longer than two days.
I’ve very fond memories of Switzerland and skiing in Verbier. Friends at the time owned a chalet there so it was the easiest place to go.
Dreadfully expensive but it was the 80s!
These days I’m constantly tempted by the delights of maybe Andorra or Bulgaria but I’ve not been skiing for 20 years so my technique might not be what it once was!
I do quite fancy jetting off to Interlaken and going for alpine walks one spring though. Or heading to Murren and doing the via ferrata there with the open mesh tunnels you crawl through at the top of the mountain!

I know that it is late in the day but I am in a state of quandary. It is extremely hot and my appetite, as usual, is minimal. I have just taken a test and I am 13.5. I was planning a meal of lentils and vegetables but I don't want to eat. Can I skip dinner?

Personally if you were one of my Smalls I’d make you eat something, even if it’s just some protein/fat/greenery. Green salad and some chicken?

I am a Very Bossy Mum Who Knows Best though.

Personally with what you go through I wouldn't, you ideally would take a correction but as your so unpredictable then that's something to be wary of too and you aren't certain of your correction factor either, I'd say maybe try 1 unit and eat something low carb rather than lentils xx

I spent a week in Neufchâtel and had one day off when we walked along the lakeside.
Beautiful.
I spent some time there, as well as Lausanne, in the 70’s. I stayed with two of my mother’s old friends - both long dead of course. My French became very good, but I’ve since lost it:(

Managed to fail French three times. It was in the days when you got letters for O levels, and they even graded how badly you failed. I managed to get an F then a G and finally an H. The only thing left was a U for ungraded. The school finally gave in. They had told me I had to have a language to get into Uni. I checked and found that wasn’t true for Maths. End of my French.

We looked at Interlaken at first but it seemed a bit “ 18/30”, and it was quite expensive. We only booked it two days before and basically stuck a pin in the map around about Lake Lucerne and come up with Vitznau, never heard of it before but was amazing but if you want nightlife stick to Interlaken!

I spent a very happy time camping in Lauterbrunnen, in the valley between near Murren and Wengen in 1989 :) Not a skier, but a walker, so in the summer :) I had a Swiss Rail pass so actually used that as a base and went all over the country from Geneva to Zurich to Zermatt - beautiful country! :)

I got a U for French O level. Perversely I’m quite proud of it especially when a few years later I found myself being able to converse in it pretty decently, read newspapers in it just fine and to understand the weather forecast which was broadcast in French.
I spent lots of time in Val d’Isere over the winters and the forecast in French would someone be significantly different to that in English and it paid to know the difference.
Also worked in Paris for a while.

Our school French mistress called me outright in the oral exam because when answering the questions about what my parents I told her my dad was an astronaut, mum a jewel thief, and that we lived in a 36 bedroom chateau.

Only time I ever saw her laugh was when I asked if I could do French A level.

She was a classic stereotype of the buttoned up, utterly humourless, beret wearing, galouise smoking, 2CV driving Frenchwoman from some tiny village in rural France.
