If we were having coffee (on the 4th of November 2018)

If we were having coffee today, then you’d tell me that I don’t look fresh. I’d reassure you and tell you that I am a whole lot better. But I have been sick for over a week, therefore I did not have you over for coffee last week. You’d probably ask me what I have, and I’d raise my shoulders to just let them drop again, I have all symptoms of the flu, except for joint-pain.

If we were having coffee, then we’d be sipping hot ginger with honey and lemon. It helps a lot to make things more bearable. I’d incite you to make most of the weather. The sky is blue and it looks like a good photography light!

Today is the last day of the school holidays (S had a little over a week off), we stayed in Paris and went on some day trips. One was just to Notre Dame and the Marais, the other was to Versailles (I started feeling sick when we came home from there). Those two days were a lot of fun and food for the eyes. 

I discovered this old pully in a parc only a few meters from the geographical centre of Paris.

If we were having coffee, I’d take some of your news. How are you? Not sick I hope! How is the writing going? Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? I signed up, but being sick and home alone with two kids isn’t the best base to get cracking on a book, honestly, I don’t even feel much like reading.

If we were having coffee, I’d nudge your try to bring your attention to very pressing matters, Christmas is coming very quickly. And what comes before Christmas? Hint look to the right, it’s the Advent Calendar. And I really want this year’s version to be a big success! Up until now, only two people (talented bloggers and both published writers) have filled out the signup form. So, check out what I am talking about, sign up and tell your friends all about it!

If we were having coffee, I’d be utterly sorry for not being very talkative, but I am starting to have an earache. Oh I know I should go to the Doctor, but getting an appointment is a different story, I am booked for the 12th and really hoping that something will open up for an earlier date…

  1. I hope you feel better soon! Yeah, I think what I had must have been the flu as well. I’m sure exploring Paris and surrounding areas was great, even if that is when you started to feel ill. Have a great week!


  2. Bonjour! I hope you are feeling better, and I want to say thanks for the lovely post even if you aren’t 100%! What is the name of the parc you visited? I love making lists about things in Paris….for “la prochaine fois” 🙂


  3. I love ginger tea!!! hope you feeling better now.
    hey I like to think am a fairly regular contributor to the Advent calender too hahaha
    have an awesome week


  4. I was a little skeptical to hit the like button here, I don’t like that you’re sick! I sure hope you feel a lot better now. Thanks for the coffee, it was good. If we were having coffee in actual real life, I would insist of making you my grandmas “get well fast soup”.


  5. Hi Solveig, So sorry you’re feeling ill and hope you heal up quickly and completely. Writing is so much more enjoyable when you’re not fighting your way through being sick. Back to you soon. Blessings.


I won't bite, seriously!
