I had a lousy week a while ago. Just after the kids went back to Bellegarde on a Sunday afternoon I got sick with the flu the very same evening. I was totally nocked out for three days in a row and then it took me a week to start firing on all eight cylinders again. Being home alone with a flue was the most depressing days I’ve spent since my girlfriend passed away.
Luckily last week and this week is the Winter Holidays in French schools so I have had the kids at my place a bit more than three days last week and all of this week. Actually it was only the two small ones that were at my place last week since Jonathan, being at university level, do not get the luxury of two weeks of holiday.
It is called a Winther Holiday but, since none of us are very interested in winter sports, to us is it like any other holiday. We watch movies, play games, go out for some dining and make some excursions.
Yesterday we watched Black Panther in the IMAX salle in Balexert. It was not too bad but it is, not very surprisingly, totally overhyped by the clueless SJW’s. There will come a review soon on my other site.
The forecast said that today should be a sunny day so we had planned to go and have a look in Shilliger in Gland and then go for a walk along the lake in Nyon and have a lunch there. Unfortunately the forecast was way off and it was windy, gray and cold as you can see from the photos attached. Well, it was nice lunch even though it became less of a walk along the lake than I had hoped for.
Tomorrow we are going to make into a resting day with no plans for the day. I suspect a sleep in with a late morning is on the menu…as well as some more movies from my collection of course. Jonathan and I are still kind of binge watching ourselves through my 007 collection. We have just come to the Pierce Brosnan period.
Oh by the way. One of my orchids have started to go into flower again. I hope I will have the same success with the rest of them.
I uploaded a few more photos from the last couple of days to my Miscellaneous 2018 album on Flickr.
