I’m trying something new today (scary!!). I’ve had my blog here on Spotlife for years and years – I feel like it’s time for a change! From here on you’ll no longer find me here, I’ll be setting up shop at Devote instead!
More precisely, here:
Hope to see you there!
Today when I woke up I was in a much better mood than I have been lately. The sun was out!!! Amazing what a difference it can make. Anyway, here’s a few quick snaps of my day so far
After lazing in bed for longer than I’d like to admit I got up to have breakfast: poached eggs (my fave) on rye bread, mixed leaves & tomato with herbes de provence. No better way to start the day! Put on mascara, posed by said sun and decided to go for a stroll before work.
Wandered down to my local library, which is situated in the Mairie de 10éme. Such a gorgeous building! Here’s the ceiling, I know it’s falling apart but I absolutely love it.
Then I strolled home and enjoyed the rays of sun over the city… now having a quick snack before picking up little boys for football practice. Good Tuesday!!
I haven’t written for ages, and honestly don’t feel very inspired to do so either. My days look more or less the same, the weather outside is grey and people are dying all over the place. So f-ing sad.
On a happier note (?), I just managed to get through first workout of 2016 today! Will really try to keep it up as it of course has endless benefits. Now, shower then prepping a nice dinner for tonight.
And on a different note, I’ve learned how to make GIFs in photoshop! Most exciting to happen this year haha. They have nothing to do with the text, but as I have nothing more interesting to show you, here they are anyway! First one is from when Mama and I were in Nice an autumn a few years ago, and it was still warm enough to hang out on the beach. The second one is me, mid-gif-learning.
Just got back from lunch with the gang (yeah I have a gang, duh), wished Rosy a Holly Jolly Christmas as she pops off to England this evening. About to head to pick up a couple of kiddies at school but thought I’d drop in with a quick hello.
My eyes and Rosy’s have disappeared.. sign of a good time I think, hehe.
And me being a dork right this minute!
Now off to work, Happy Friday guys!!!
Bit quiet on le blog the past few days, as I’ve had a bit of a end of season work-spurt, and have been pretty much exhausted outside of that… Right now I’ve just managed to get two little boys in to their beds and am once again, absolutely exhausted. One more afternoon & evening of work (don’t get me wrong, I love my kids to bits!) then full focus on Christmas presents (cannot panic enough about this, wuaaa) and packing for Stockholm on Tuesday!!
For now, a few random pics from le iPhone. An honest look at life right now!
Recently made sock puppets with two little ones, made a ninja and this little mouse (who has a tail and all!). Big hit all round.
Tried on dream shoes and almost shed a tear due to never being able to afford that kind of luxury… Rosy was more chipper: One day Elin, one day.
Re-discovered this old goodie, still makes me laugh. No really, makes me properly laugh out loud.
Had pizza with Carro at East Mamma, honestly the best pizza I’ve ever had. Went half half since we couldn’t decide on one. Kind of want to let everything go and RUN back there now….
No idea when this was but thought I’d end this post with a cheesy smile, so tadaa!
Now, double-checking that little boys are in fact sleeping and not up to mischief, then Swedish Christmas TV and tea is on the menu
A few weeks ago I had a Sunday date with two of my favourite Parisians, Rosy & Richard. It’s an equally sunny day today, I’m prepping all the Christmas party-things I can before I pop out to pick up kids!
Anyway, a quick few pics from another sunny day
We went to l’Académie de la Bière, the best place in Paris for mussels! Here, Rosy looking serious and hungry. Hehe.
Hot tip if you like mussels and beer, and who the hell doesn’t?!
We tried a few different ones, sadly don’t remember the names at all.. all nice though!
I had the same ones that I always have, the ones drowned in roquefort sauce. Mmmmmm….
A happy me, and Richards arm.. the only picture where you see him properly was one that I squeezed in to and looked absolutely terrible, so eh, sorry about that Richard :/
A dangerously strong, but very tasty, beer. And its cute!
A beautiful sunny afternoon with tasty food, beer and good friends. What more could a girl ask for?
