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…
I NEED SOME NEW MEMBERS
FOR THE FAMILY CAFE PROJECT ASSOCIATION
Please contact me if you’re interested. Thank you!
In the meantime, here is good advice I found that I want to share with you…
It’s raining today after a blissful Indian summer week-end. Already I’m thinking about getting ready for what I dread the most: less sun, less heat, less daylight and less leaves on the trees. Just yesterday I was cursing at the forest because I couldn’t walk peacefully under it’s canopy without getting bombarded with spiky chestnuts.
You’re probably wondering why « good morning Boulanger »? Weird, I know, but I’m so happy that they came this morning at 7:30 to change my oven! It broke down 2 weeks ago and I’m a little fed up with barbecuing every evening. Although the weather has been lovely but that won’t last (being realistic here)! Yes, there are good services in France! I’m also looking forward to Lire la suite →
