This camper is happy!

I haven’t been around much, because I’ve been quite busy. Life has this habit of getting in the way at times, doesn’t it? Between work, added two new clients this past week alone, finalising the paper work for my mother and our daily crap, I barely had any time left to blog. Plus I have to make sure that all my clients will be ok while we’ll be away. In eleven days we will be off, but before then there will be a lot of running around, that’s for sure.

To add to the excitement, our friends from Switzerland arrived last night, which made us very happy campers! We had not seen them in four years. They are staying with us and were the first to use our brand spankin’ new Murphy Bed, which was installed on Monday. I just love it! It’s gorgeous, fits in perfectly and changes the whole look of that downstairs room. According to our friends this morning, they slept very well on the new mattress, so hooray for that as well.

This morning we walked around Old Montreal and made our way to “Eggspectation” for breakfast. They were craving it for the last four years. They used to live in Montreal and moved to CH eleven years ago already. Each time they come in, they have their local favorites, which they miss, like last night’s dinner: saucy chicken wings! While in town, they will have to eat some Montréal smoked-meat, some poutine, and do a run at Wal-Mart for some items that can only be found on this side of the pond...

On our walk back from the restaurant, I bought myself a little phone charm… I just had to… it was calling my name (like some earrings did not that long ago on Etsy)… Isn’t Mr. Chin the cutest? Hee.

I just love Alessi and spending some quality time with good friends! Life is good at times like these...
