London : tropical weather, I can’t believe it !

Drenched, sweaty, I am dreaming about a cocktail and sunshine to cope with the unexpected,  the temperamental weather. One day we have a heatwave, the day after I was bare legs and wearing flats shoes to be bombarded by pouring rain. I spent the day feet wet and cursing my naivety to believe that summer is here. Today, more cautious than ever I trusted my favorite boots and wore them with a light coat to finish completely sweaty, drenched due to this humid weather in the train, this tropical weather which has no mercy for us poor human beings trying to adjust to its up and downs. I am telling you, I am ready to be a true Londoner, to have an umbrella, a pair of pointed shoes and my favorite sunglasses in my bag for EVER  !!! Bloody hell, I love Summer but I really forgot that before Summertime, here in London, you have to go through the hot, humid, wet, tropical crisis of the weather before at last enjoy thoroughly Summer!

I don’t think so and you know what ? I’m not going to wait for the approval of someone,  I will grab this opportunity to live passionately, enjoy this time between autumn and winter where I can eat with gourmandise spelt and quinoa scones with ricotta and rhubarb jam very yummy!  I can’t wait to enter into this festive period which is Christmas, I am craving comfort food, mulled wine, chai tea latte but also Christmas decorations, Christmas markets and this atmosphere of goodwill around us. At any moment, …

Horreur et Damnation

Depuis le 26 Décembre, les soldes ont commencé à Londres et ici, ce que j’aime chez les Anglais, c’est qu’ils ne lésinent pas là-dessus, quand les soldes commencent c’est tout de suite à moins 50% et vous pouvez trouver un paquet de bons deals et de bonnes affaires. Vous vous doutez bien, que je trépignais d’impatience à l’idée de dévaliser les magasins pour dénicher les bonnes affaires. J’étais prête, ready pour cet assaut modesque… quand en cours de route, j’ai été stoppée net dans mon élan, brutalement et rapidement…! La compagnie dans laquelle je bosse a eu le don de zapper que j’avais cumulé mes vacances avec mon congé de maternité et qu’il devait me payer trois semaines de vacances payées en Décembre !!! J’aurai eu en face de moi, le responsable de cette erreur, je lui aurai fait la tête au carré…purement et simplement…non seulement il a réduit tous mes projets à néant mais il a rendu mon humeur massacrante… et c’est un euphémisme…! (je tiens à le dire !) Dès lors que je …
