Take off day

Then its time for me to leave this grey rainy weather and have 7 days in the sun. Not planned, but two days ago I felt that NO I do need chance to some sun even if I’m normally not lucky when it comes to weather when Im abroad.

Hopefully I will be able to update you during the week, no computer with me but I will bring the pad.

Confused?

“Milord”

I do not know if the kidney stones I’m passing at the moment (or shall I say the drugs to make the pain less painful) delivered the my most confused moment in my “living in France” experience…

Anyway, I decided to go back in time and listen to the playlist “Dalida” on my way to work and for some reason she recorded an English version of “Milord”, made famous by Edith Piaf.

So on my way to work, bus 81, I found myself listen to Dalidas version of the song and had the epiphany “WOW, I actually understand all the lyrics of Milord” – Without a single thought she sang it in English not French.

It was a short moment of satisfaction to finally understand French.

TGIF

TGIF – Thank God it’s Friday

Kind of a strange saying cause Friday is a working day and at the end of it you are as tiered as mid-week. So I admire the once who turn the alarm clock off thinking “Tonight I am going to party”! Good for you Boys and Girls. (Sorry, not political correct, I try again: “Good for you Boys, Girls, Transgender, non-binary, Queer and any other gender label out there”)

Have a nice weekend

Bon-Weekend

Trevlig Helg

Been a while

So, long time since any posts

Yes, sorry for this but life goes on and time flies so what to do as they say in India?

Since last I have been visiting Sweden and both Norrköping and Stockholm on the agenda and this evening I will (in Paris) take my not so petit body to a concert. No time between leaving work and going to the venue. I hate that, I want to shower and change clothes to at least look like a fan of pop… But no.

But going back in time, visited Norrköping to pay my respect to the people in the family grave, it was All Saints Day after all and planned to meet with more people than the once I actually managed to meet up with during two days.

Stockholm, also for 2 days, kind of being Stockholm as always. Just some shopping, a few beers with friends and not so much more. Stockholm is not all that…

But now back in France I hope to be able to post more.

Yes less and less light

As always, now it gets darker in the mornings. Not as bad here in Paris as in Sweden and Stockholm but still no fun. Winter is kind of the punishment for all bad things homo sapiens done since the dawn of time. Actually the only thing making me believe that religious people are in their right and there is a God. Not the nice forgiving one a mean one forgetting about “Let there be light” and go, “Let them live in a dark cold misery.

And this is just the beginning

Now official

If U not noticed, it’s official, summers over.

Yes, from 30 degrees to what I consider as minus degrees even it it’s not. And the dark dark mornings. Not as bad in Paris as in Sweden when you during winter with no problem at all can miss daylight completely if you have normal office hours. And I said it before, if anytime of the year Sweden need daylight saving it’s during winter, NOT summer.

Daylight saving

Maybe the best thing EU ever done

So finally we might get rid of the stupid idea of daylight saving time in Europe. Face the facts, Sweden don’t need it, if anything we need winter daylight saving. And to move the the daylight to appear in the evening during winter one hour is a joke. We need to adjust the “normal” time with 4 – 5 hours. Try that as a project…
