After her nap (and some telly for us and furry Pelu’) we headed to the Christmas market in Einsiedeln: a picturesque village which I already told you about here.
We decided to go there at the end of the afternoon when all the Christmas lights are lit as it’s very magical. In my head I pictured a perfect afternoon sipping mulled wine, snacking on raclette and snooping through the stalls. Well, the reality couldn’t have been more different: after an ecstatic moment where Catherine went on the carousel having a blast, she started yelling from the top of her lungs non stop. Nothing would make her stop, not even bribing her with sweets…so we decided to quickly return to the car and head home. I must admit I was very disappointed, being a mom can be quite challenging some days.
Luckily she calmed down once we arrived home and Charles made us a lovely Bolognese pasta which also Catherine enjoyed very much, we also indulged ourselves in some strong red wine (adults only!).
We are planning to visit more Christmas markets and I really hope that the whole experience will be more pleasant next time 😉
