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.

Rare repairs – Hugh’s Photo Challenge: Week 7 – Funny Or Strange Signs

This weekend, my family and I went on a very long walk in Paris, it was our thanksgiving walk. We went to republic and made our way through the sights of flowers and candles by the Bataclan. It was definitely strange, and difficult to grasp (I will probably write about it towards he end of December).

But the heart wrenching part of our walk was only limited in time. I discovered many streets that I had never been in before. There was a tiny café with only two tables, even though it was tiny it was inviting.

One of the things that captured my attention was a little sign advertising a repair service for umbrellas and ombrelles. What a great service in a world where umbrellas litter bins after each windy rain.
