Last week school was out for "All Saints Holidays" (strange name for school holidays in a country where showing religious signs in public spaces, especially in schools, isn't allowed), and I had the occasion, to spend a whole day with just my daughter. When you are a big sister it isn't all that easy to … Continue reading Yetis and Music, Walks and Other Smiles
When Barack Obama was President of the USA, I didn't pay much attention to American politics. Okay, I was studying politics, but I danced around US politics and electoral matters in general. I thrived on topics such as political thought, international relations, the EU, but I wasn't interested in how people voted. Because back then … Continue reading Michelle Obama – M – A to Z Challenge
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, … Continue reading If we were having coffee (on the 4th of November 2018)
I live in Paris, and one could think that such a big Metropole is only made up of lifeless buildings. But the many parks and squares in the city as well as greened balconies and windowsills, let a lot of wildlife develop itself peacefully.

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 … Continue reading Weekend Coffee Share 08/07/2017
If we were having coffee today then I'd propose that you'd join little one and myself at the playground near my home. I hope you are well prepared, sunscreen, sunglasses, maybe a hat. If you don't mind we are drinking water lots of that. I would suddenly produce some fresh fruit, nectarines and flat peaches … Continue reading Let’s meet where the kids play!
The Scent of Roses When my parents got married almost 24 years ago my mom had a beautiful bridal bouquet. The roses were vivid in colour, red, pink, yellow. The colours were strong, not the faint pastel tones one is used to for weddings. My mother was not wearing white either, she wore a black … Continue reading The Scent of Roses
