Auntie Catherine Came to Visit

Finally spring has sprung here in Basel and just in time to welcome Auntie Catherine.  In Europe for work it was wonderful that she could extend her trip and spend 5 days with us.  We love living here in Switzerland but we really miss our family and friends down under.

I had plans for lots of great day trips, but lets face it tripping about the place with three young kids is not always that much fun.  I was so glad that Catherine was keen to just hang out and enjoy time with us.  We did pick Catherine up from the train station bright and early after an over night train trip and took her straight to our favourite restaurant in Germany for breakfast.  Followed by supermarket shopping, not a favourite for everyone but something my siblings and I all enjoy particularly a new supermarket in a new country.

The next day as it was a bit wet we visited the Natural History Museum in the city center and in between rain showers showed Catherine the highlights of Basel city center.

With the rest of the time we did lots of baking and cooking,
banoffee pie
Poached Chicken and Citrus Salad
walking our favourite local tracks,

watching some favourite movies

and when the sun shone hanging out in the garden.

Thanks so much Auntie Catherine for coming to visit, we all had a great time xxoo.
