*°*° BLOG UPDATES °*°*
I'm linking back to The Sunday Post for the last time, not because I don't appreciate it (I really do and Kim does a great work) but it has become so huge - almost 70 subscribers - that it's getting difficult for me to follow. It often takes me several days to visit them all. Once I'm back at work, it will probably be impossible. But I wish to thank Kim for the warm and supportive community she has created over the years and wish her continuing success ! There are so many bloggers I wouldn't know if it weren't for her :)
I also unsuscribed from the "Comment 4 comment" challenge because thinking about it, I don't think commenting just for the sake of commenting, as it sometimes happens, is worth it and also because I have this problem with whatever it is on my computer that prevents me from signing up with my Google account (Badger again, probably). At least, I can comment with Twitter... However, I'm still working on solving this and building that blog roll. The time it will give me will allow me to comment on a more regular basis - and read more ! Less comments, better quality, more regular - I hope. These days, I can only catch up once a week, when I can ! Anyway, my spread sheet with blog addresses and names is almost ready.
*°*° LIFE UPDATES °*°*
My eldest daughter is not enjoying homeschooling. It's been almost a year since she didn't go back to Paris to study Korean and when she seems a bit depressed, since I'm working from home for the time being, I take her out walking or we watch things together to cheer her up. She's been away almost one week last summer to visit a friend in Brittany and a couple of days last week in Paris to visit another friend, that's all. She practically sees noone and goes nowhere. There has been a study on French students recently after several suicides and their morale isn't good, so she's my priority. I don't think she's in danger, mind you, I just don't like to see her that way.
This week, I watched one episode of Hercule Poirot, then :
Star Trek Beyond - I love those new Star Trek films !
and also All creatures great and small
I both loved them ! Different styles :)
