Weekend Coffee Share 08/07/2017

If we were having coffee, then I would be so glad to have you over!

The past two Saturdays I had friends over (both where in my class in high school, which was 10, yes TEN years ago!!!), as no one is announced for today (maybe a friend will come tomorrow), and little one, errr should give her a different nickname is sleeping, I will do a coffee post.

It has been forever since I had coffee with you. Or maybe this is the first time you are stumbling onto my blog, or the first time you are reading a coffee share post here… Anyways it has been a while.

It is a beautiful day in Paris and I have no coffee to propose to you, but maybe a sparkling water, a grenadine? I have milk and still water too and if you are really into a hot beverage then maybe a tea, or a hot chocolate?

Now, if you are a regular reader of my blog, then you are probably wondering what I have been up to all these months. Or maybe you figured it out all by yourself.

I have been on maternity leave, and well I extended that to my blog, which for some reason is not just a hobby for me. If I want to blog properly, then it has to be like a job (probably an excuse that I am hiding behind….). This week I posted again since a very long time, and I worked again. Exactly 18 weeks after giving my last lesson and 17 weeks after giving birth to my son I was back to work on Thursday, well I did one hour by skype, any baby can cope with that!

My son, he’ll be 4 months old tomorrow! And little one she’s celebrated her 3 years and 5 months yesterday.

So if we were having coffee, then we would talk kids, work, we’d catch up and most of all I would ask you so many questions. I might mention a book or two that I have read recently.

If we were having coffee, or any other beverage, then I would tell you about the amazing bakery here in the neighbourhood, that is modern, affordable, young and so good. I went to their 1st birthday party on Wednesday, we had a guided tour of where the magic happens in the Boulangerie Montgolfière

I’d tell you that my phone has been dead for three weeks, I have returned to the storage of communication: email and communicating exclusively from home, no more text messages or WhatsApp, no calls when outside somewhere. It’s still working fine, sort of…

As I reserve you some water, you’d ask me about my holiday plans for the summer. I’d tell you that I’ll mostly spend July and August in overheated Paris, and I would proceed to show you some pictures from our holidays in June.

Retenue de la Bancalié

I hope you don’t mind, but I won’t accompany you to the metro, as you found your way here alright, I am sure that you won’t get lost. And if you do, some say that getting lost in Paris, is the best way to get to know Paris.

For more coffee posts, you will find them over at Nerd in the Brain and at Part-Time Monster.

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. It was great to have coffee with you again! I’m glad you were able to take those four months or so of maternity leave. Easing back into work is the way to go. Anyway, I’ll head over the the bakery (they do not make good bread in the US, at least for those who have eaten bread in Paris!) and then go get lost… (An aside – despite parts of the city still having its ancient roots, I found Paris one of the easiest cities to navigate. I tried to get lost a few times, but couldn’t. Took random Metro stops, walked in a random direction and instantly knew exactly where I was. I must have lived there in a past life…)

    1. Actually their bread is amazing for local standards too. I think I might write a review soon.
      I have no idea how to get lost here, the worst thing that can happen is that you won’t find a metro stop right away, but if you keep your eyes open, you never really get lost, you just discover.
      Officially I had 115 days, but I stopped working a few days early and took came back to work later, joys of not having an employer…
      My son decided to come on my 3rd official day off…

  2. Yes, the iced Mocha was delightful. Congratulations on the new family member. How exciting. Thank you for letting me hold the young man too. I hope you are getting LOTS of sleep. Thank you for the delightful chat.


  3. The coffee was lovely. But it usually is in Paris. I’ll be there again in the fall and can’t wait to see that beautiful city and my gorgeous granddaughters. Congrats on your newest addition. 🙂


  4. Congratulations on you new family member. The bakery sounds interesting and getting lost in Paris would help me learn a little about my heirtage. My Mother’s family came from France.


  5. Hello again, Solveig! It’s good to see you are back:) Congratulations on the arrival of your son. It is a wonderful and challenging time; maternity leave from blogging is a great idea.


  6. Congratulations once again, Solveig on the arrival of your little man, as we say here in Australia. You must have your hands full. My son is now 13 and my daughter is 11 and starts high school. unfortunately, we lost our dog Bilbo a few weeks ago but still have Lady and are about to mind a dog.
    My cousins are in Paris at the moment. He husband is French and they’ve taken their year old identical twin boys over to meet his family. Ordinarily, it would be exciting but I do worry about them.
    Take care and it’s great to hear from you again.
