15 happy things for your October!

Paul & Paula 15 things for October
Oh hello! At the moment I am not so sure how I feel about Fridays. On the one hand, I am happy for the weekend to start. On the other hand, I feel like time is literally rushing through. Another week has gone by… waaaaahhh…

I cannot wait to slow down again and breathe. We do have a really great holiday coming up for the Winter break (Dec/Jan) and I just love the pre-excitement before going away. This time even more, because we all really need a break. To relax, to spend time together (slow and quality) and do not follow any wake-up calls, appointments, and other commitments.

How about you?

I do love autumn very much and this year we are lucky to see some sun shining through the pretty leaves as well. But I can also see that this is always a rather hard period for the children. Between the middle of August when they went to school and the very end of October – it is a long period of school weeks. On top the days are getting shorter, the mornings are dark and a little chilly. Everyone is tired. Do you feel the same?

Nevertheless, I have gathered quite a few cool finds as well as reads for you. I hope that you will enjoy them:

Beautiful kids bedding and home accessories from Australia

Paul & Paula: Beautiful kids bedding and home accessories from Australia
This week I showed you some really cool play corners. For your children to play and to have fun. Another thing that really makes a difference in a children’s room is the bedding. Beautiful, soft bedding helps with sweet dreams but it also changes the whole look and feel of the space.

A child’s bedroom is a sanctuary. A place where they can dream, sleep and play.

I just found this Australian brand called Hiccups and their Linen House for Kids range that has your child’s room covered. They have colourful and trendy designs that kids love, and parents would want for their own bed too.

A few things for August (Friday List)

A few things for August (Friday List)

I moved my desk to France and isn’t a new scenery always a welcome change?

We arrived on Sunday late and had our dose of crepes, creme de marron, supermarket stroll and real cider straight away. Oh and a ‘croissant aux amandes’ for me too…

We are in Brittany which is relatively cool compared to the temperatures of the rest of France! (which means: very often we had rain drizzles and temps around 18 when the rest of the country had sun and 28C. No kidding! We which the ‘meteo’ and the whole country was nice and sunny and then one grey spot. One. Just here! But anyway… this year we are just happy with the weather and that we can be outside all the time!)

And enough about France and off to my finds from the last weeks, lots of goodies. As usual!

Whales!

Whales!

Whales! I am back on watching documentaries on Netflix. I love a good docu but I am not always in the mood for them and it is more phases… movie phases, re-watching FRIENDS phases, crime series phases and documentaries…

And then I am mostly going for food and health stuff. And of course it includes the consequences to our environment. Including our oceans.

Ok, that is a long intro for todays post, but what I wanted to say is that one evening whilst watching a docu I was thinking about whales and that I saw quite a few in various shops. A little gathering would be nice to bring them all together…
