Deuxième jour à paris

12th of March 2019 – The Eiffel-tower, food & rain

After an almost sleepless night we finally woke up at around 7 am. I was hoping to be able to sleep in on this mini vacation but I guess my mind and body had other plans. We were well excited to finally have a great buffet breakfast awaiting us. But we were unfortunately very surprised when all we got was 1 coffee, a glas of juice, 1/2 a baguette and 3 sweet pastries with only jam and butter as toppings. Was this a normal french breakfast? Disappointed after spending a large amount of money at this hotel with a breakfast included, we had no choice but to settle with what we got.

It was only 10 am so we decided to take a morning walk around the block. The sun was shining yet again to our delight and we were thrilled to see spring arriving. We were both starving after an hour so we sat down at a little cafe for an early lunch.

Back at the hotel I rested my feet before we decided to take an adventure to the Eiffel-tower – 6 km away. A mission to accomplish, especially at 7 months pregnant. We took our map as help and walked alongside the Seine. Halfway there we had to take a break and warm up since the wind was especially strong today. A coffee later we made our last effort to the infamous landmark.

A sight to see for sure – such a beautiful landmark to visit. Even though the top floor was closed that day, we enjoyed the view from below. After some admiration we found a restaurant – ‘Cafe Gustave‘ – where we enjoyed a well earned dinner before we took a taxi back to our hotel.

Let the weekend come

Today has been such a wonderful day. 17 degrees, sunshine with a little cold breeze. We went out for a walk a half hour ago and now the little one is sleeping next to me. I never know when the baby is going to wake up so I have to keep it short. Tomorrow we’re having a little celebration for my mum since she had her birthday a couple of days ago. I’ve already make a cake but it didn’t turn out the way I wanted so I might just make another one. Other than that I’m done with my daily chores, like vacuuming and working out. Now I can sit back and let the weekend come with the good company of my  family.

Happy weekend!

Greatest blessing

Nowadays my day usually starts around six in the morning following a one hour nap when the little one has had breakfast. After that I try to get some food myself and spend most of my days on the couch watching reruns of shows. Around twelve and two I try to get my body moving and go out for a stroll. Then between diaper changes and food I try to make dinner and then go to bed around eight in the evening, knowing that I have to wake up again in three hours.

But I wouldn’t trade this life with anything. I ‘m really enjoying myself and hopefully this isn’t to early to say but I think I’m meant to be a mother. Somehow I find cooking and cleaning, something I was grown up to do from a very young age, so relaxing. And I have the best company throughout the day.
