If we were having coffee – 5 September 2015

If we were having coffee today, I suppose then we would be having a nice cup of tea, like always.

How have you been? I have probably been actively commenting on your blog over the last few days, so I should know how you are. If I haven’t then I should head over to your space on the internet and see what you have been creating, wondering, seeing…

This week was a girls only week, not the whole week, but from Monday to Thursday S was in London for a class. It was his first time in the UK. He really enjoyed himself there and is looking forward to going back in November. Maybe in 2016 for his last class we will join him for a few days. Meet up with bloggers? Who knows?

Just the two of us at home, was not always easy. Little one was seeking attention all the time, but the weather was somewhat responsible for that. Last weekend it was really hot (32°C and now temperatures have dropped to 19°C and below).

I think that recently I mentioned that I did not work all August, and that I was hoping to get back to work. Well my wish has been granted, I was contacted twice this week! So now I have two new clients, and have my first lesson this afternoon. My goal is to work 10 to 15 hours per week. So I will keep you updated on that. But being freelance means that clients come and go, sometimes they come back after months of absence too, which is a great compliment.

A my daughter didn’t want me to use the computer all week, I did not write as much as I would have like to, normally I wrote when she went into her night’s beauty sleep. I wrote about our travels to Austria, more precisely old traditions and happy cows. I participated in the freestyle writing challenge, and started to create a whole new universe. Yesterday I posted a book review, of a book that I absolutely loved and read during my train travel to Austria.

I discovered an amazing new park in Paris, but I will tell you more about that one soon. And of course I will continue sharing my Austrian adventures with you. And next Saturday this is going to have it’s 6 month anniversary, but more on that in next weeks coffee share.

summer is fading, but the flowers are still there

But before I leave you. Go join the GO PLAY challenge hosted by Nerd in the Brain and if you found out about it here, then mention me as your referral in the signup form 😘. And do join in the great blog party that is going on over there too. Awww so much info, I know. I have already completed 2 challenges! (visiting a new park and playing catch).

If we were having coffee, I would ask you just one small favour, go over to Diana’s blog Part-Time Monster (the cool logo comes from there) and check out the linky, and if you have your own coffee share post, add it to the said linky!

Have a great weekend, Solveig

  1. It’s always great fun finding a new place to visit. My family and I are going to check out a new park tomorrow, and we’re all looking forward to it. It’s back to school Monday, but I think my girls are ready now (it’s always the same toward the end of the summer half term). It’s great news you have jobs coming in. I don’t know about you, but September always seems like a chaotic month for me! Have a great weekend 😀

    1. It is, after I went I hit Wikipedia to find out everything and now there are some hidden places that I never heard about all over town that I want to visit.
      Do have fun tomorrow. I do remember that towards the end of the summer I was looking forward to school, because being lazy cannot last forever.
      I have the feeling that September will be really chaotic, new clients, organising my schedule and maybe even some traveling.

    1. Thank you! I have to figure out how to organise my schedule (childcare…)
      I will try to visit it this weekend and take pictures


  2. YES to meeting in England, I’m in Birmingham. 🙂 Would love to meet up in person. Glad jobs came along. Hope September proves a productive month.

    1. Well I will keep you updated.
      I do hope that it will be productive. When I look back at blogging the months were I have been the most prolific were those where I had the most work. So we’ll see.

  3. What a week! Little Jedi was home sick Thursday, and he did *not* want me to do any work, though I needed to. And I totally understand about freelancing—that’s mostly what I do, though I do have 2 rather consistent clients.

  4. ah that challenge sounds like so much fun – I wish I had the time!
    Happy to hear that you have clients again, wishing you the best with your work. Freelancing can be tough, but you will be fine. Blessings!

    1. I think that maybe you have time to complete some of the Go Play! Challenges, I think we are just challenged to listen to the inner child a bit more 🙂
      Thank you. I have started the week on a very positive note and hope that it will continue his way.


  5. Sounds like a busy month! I’ve been busy too, but with book design and editing projects…. hopefully September will be a little less hectic, but I’m not holding my breath! 😉

    Lovely photos!

    1. Well not always busy, tomorrow it will be all calm 🙂 but Monday was quite a busy day, well as a mom I am always busy even when I am not …
      I hope that you’ll be able to catch some breath and not just hold it.
      Thank you, your photos are always amazing do that’s a real compliment!

  6. I know how difficult it can get being alone with a child, let alone two. Seems like you made it through the week all right. I wonder what language you speak to your daughters. You may have mentioned it somewhere before, but I forget.
    Your month sounds busy.

    1. Ah, I only have one, for now at least…
      I speak German with her and my fiancé speaks French. She’ll learn English sooner or later, and she already hears that a lot.
