Voici les nouvelles: je n’arrête pas d’écrire dans mon blog, ni d’organiser des événements FCP. J’avais d’autres priorités à régler ces derniers mois (année?) et je suis désolée d’avoir été absente si longtemps.
Maintenant je me sens sortir de cette crise! Une nouvelle page Lire la suite →
I’m not closing down my blog nor stopping FCP events. I’m sorry I haven’t been around as much as I would have liked to these past months (past year?) but I had other priorities to attend to and. It was hard and I was going through a crisis.
Well, I feel like I’m coming out of my cave now! Turning a page and 2018 is going to be a whole different story! Lire la suite →
It’s the last day of September. Tomorrow is a new month, a new day… I’m closing the « rentrée » chapter today. Tomorrow is a new beginning. Yesterday at 10 am I was alone drinking my tea on the sunny terrace of Carabistouilles. It was fine. I didn’t expect many people to show up anyway. So I decided then and there to close another chapter in my life. Maybe it’s a temporary closure, who knows. I’m not going to organize any new FCP (Family Cafe Project) events for a few months, maybe forever. I have new plans for tomorrow…and I’m letting the signs guide me.
In a few days, my life will drastically change from being a stay-at-home-taxi-mom to two wild teenagers, a caretaker to a senile and absent minded 90 year old mother-in-law, a confused « conseillère municipale » to a baffled Town Hall (although I am head over heals with our new President Emmanuel Macron), and Lire la suite →
Did you know that before opening Carabistouilles Guillaume worked with Hermes in Paris and is specialized in Palais Des Thés? Join us Thursday June 2nd for a Tea Tasting with Guillaume. He will introduce us to 15 different teas! Not only we will taste them, but he will tell us their secrets. 5€ per person.
Also, if you’re interested in becoming a more active member, even being part of the Association board, please come and let’s talk about it!
What? June already!! Well, yes, and it will go by very quickly. Before you know it, school will be out and you’ll be on the « autoroute du soleil » on your way to the beach! So I’ve put together a few events and managed to squeeze them into June, just so you can leave on a long break with a good memory of me. And you’ll look forward to September because the show will go on! 😉
First, this little piece of advice, maybe something to ask for on Mother’s Day?… Lire la suite →
Maybe it’s a « mid life » crisis? after all my « mid life » birthday is coming up soon… Maybe it’s because I need to make sure the new helper I found to care for my mother-in-law is a good one? Maybe, maybe, maybe…anyway, whatever the reason…I really do want to write, re-think my project and organise more cafés in Orgeval. How do I know I want to do this? That is a secret for now but I will tell you in one of my next cafés!
Don’t forget to check the femmepreneurs site for our next Business Luncheon May 17 in Orgeval. You must book and pay for the event before May 13! This time, viva Italia!
By the way…

In the meantime, here is good advice I found that I want to share with you…
So we’re already 13 days into the New Year and I haven’t really come up with any new resolutions. They’re the same as last year. I want to lose 20 kilos (well, 4 will be ok too) and go back to work (part time) and improve my marriage and relationship with my kids…and I want to walk my dog more! What I seriously want to do is make time to Lire la suite →
