Yesterday was siren testing day in Kanton Zürich. Every town has several of these installed on the top of buildings which are designed to alert the community at large of a civil emergency or other impending doom. Depending on where you live they can be incredibly loud (one right next to our house!) and plenty of warning is given before they are tested.
While all this was going out I hotfooted it off to my fav shop to exchange a stamp I bought recently but somehow I came home with all this other stuff, how on earth did that happen?? However, if you look closely there are coasters with holes in them and curly wurly bits of wire to make into little books, how exciting is that?!!
