My name is Meta. I live with my husband and our two children in our lovely house outside of Lausanne. I have lived in Switzerland since 2005. I’m a scientist with a PhD in Biology.

This blog

Just like what I said on my first entry on this blog, I didn’t speak French really well, but I understand more and more each day. By now I could manage everyday living with my basic French, but still can’t write that well in French so the blog stays in English 🙂

It was difficult to find information in English about many things when I became pregnant in 2008. This was the reason I started this blog. I wanted to share what I had learned. I hope you will find it useful. So, do drop a line or two when you have some additional info or comments in relation to what I blog about.

I always research the topic of the post and try to post the most current and accurate data. However, these things may change after sometime, so please double check, especially when it deals with important things.

As much as I can, I try to use my own collection of pictures. Otherwise, I use royalty free or Creative Common images I find on the net. Please do not use any image on this blog without permission. For the Creative Common ones, please go to the original page to download the original.
