The other day a friend of mine had posted on Facebook “French should change the quotation, “après la pluie le beau temps ” to “après un jour de beau temps, un mois de pluie”” (the first quote means “After rain comes nice weather” , and the second one means “after one day of nice weather, … Continue reading

I have the pleasure to announce you that we have turned the heater off at home 🙂 I went through my old posts, and found that we turned it on on October 17th!! 7 months!! I’m sure that’s a record; 7 months of heater in Lebanon is like 7 months in Hell! This brings in … Continue reading

I was really busy during the last week so I could not talk to you. What have you missed during this period? Not much let me assure you. First of all we’re back to winter weather: it’s cold, gloomy and raining. Second I’m still waiting for my package to come by mail; it’s been 5 … Continue reading

Did I tell you it’s cold? After 2 months of wait, winter is finally here! And it heavily imposed itself: half of France is all white. Of course you’ve guessed that our department isn’t part of this half 😦 But anyway we’re really cold now; the heater is working full power in the entire house. … Continue reading

I think I’m becoming French. Why am I saying this you will ask? Well it’s simple. French people’s main concern is the weather: will it be sunny, will it rain, etc… They are so concerned about it that they have the night weather news once before the news and a second time after the news; … Continue reading

It’s cold outside! Winter is finally here; it took its time, but eventually it found the way. The Weather Channel was also predicting a bit of snow this week end. For once the sight of snow on the website didn’t please me because we’re going to Paris by car, so it won’t be the best … Continue reading

I’m back!! I really missed this blog, missed telling you the story of my life and boring you with my daily details 🙂 As I told you before I did not have access to the internet all the time while we were in Lebanon, so I could not bore you then 😛 But I never … Continue reading
