I know you were all waiting for it, and here it comes : my second post on the series “One week, one picture” (I might be a tiny bit too excited about it hahah but got loads to say so grab something to eat, drink and relax)
I’ll start by saying I took 566 photos during this week. Yes, you read right. I’m an addict, ok? Please don’t judge haha. Anyway, it was hard to choose only one picture but I had to, that’s the challenge you know. So here it is :
A picture along the lake, how typical for me haha. I think you know by now that I absolutely love walking along the lake. It is just so peaceful and relaxing. The view is always stunning with the mountains in the background and it’s a free activity so it totally makes sense that is my favorite thing to do in Switzerland!
I took it in Lutry, along the lake Léman on Wednesday. It’s got all kind of weather in it : sun, white clouds, grey clouds, blue sky, … and then couldn’t more described my week. My mood has been changing through the days, hours and even minutes… Mood swings I think it’s called. Well, that was me all week.
On Monday, I was feeling ill and was in lot of pain. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it on my blog yet but I kind of hurt myself in Italy last week end. Don’t worry, nothing too big, I just walked too much… Yes it is possible. I couldn’t walk properly without feeling pain behind my knee. So yeah, Monday was not the greatest day. And you know, it’s Monday sooo.
Tuesday was a lot better, the pain was almost gone. Work was great, I went to Lutry for a walk with the little one I look after before picking up the big one.
And then Wednesday was the worst. At least the evening. I had an awesome day with the kids I look after. Doing some crafts in the morning and went for a walk in the afternoon along the lake. They’ve been super sweet! After that day, I went to check my blog stats and was so disappointed. I felt like no one had read my new post. I stayed up until 1am to finish it on time. I felt irrelevant. Like why bother if no one reads? The blogging community on Twitter is the best though, they left some comforting comments to help me feel better. Usually, I don’t care about stats, I don’t care if no one reads my posts. I blog for me, myself and I, that’s it. I guess I was just tired. A few hours later, I was feeling better already.
Usually I don’t drive the kids to school in the morning but I did on Thursday morning. There were a lot of snow and roads were quite slippery. It was soooo scary to drive but I made it alive, so all good! In the evening, I was feeling ill again, like what’s wrong with me haha?
As the week end approached, I was looking for a place to visit on Saturday, I opted for Bern. The weather was so bad on Friday though, I thought about cancelling. Luckily for me, when I woke up Saturday morning (at 7.45 am btw. ON A SATURDAY.), it was so sunny so it was time for a daytrip. I was about to buy my train ticket to Bern and realised it was way more expensive than expected. No way I was gonna pay that much haha. I looked for a city along the lake on Google Maps. One I had never been to and opted for Nyon as it looked cute. I invited an another aupair to come with me and off we go. I think it’s the first time I had been disappointed while exploring a city in Switzerland. It was so small and almost anything to see except shops. It was also really foggy so the view on the lake wasn’t the greatest. After spending a few hours there, we decided that on our way back to Lausanne, we could make a stop to Morges. It’s also a small city but I was so happy that we stopped there. The pier was so much better than the one in Nyon and the architecture was great as well. A great turnaround.
On Saturday evening, something really odd happened : I started planning, like actually planning. I’m not a planner at all so that’s why it’s weird but I suddenly drew calendars and wrote the title of each post I was (hopefully) gonna post and when until the end of April. I know some bloggers have already the plan of their blog until the end of 2019 so it won’t seem like a big deal. But for me it is haha. I usually don’t know which post I’m going to post for the week ahead so.
Also a quick note before saying bye, I created a new page on my blog called Quotes that you can check out just here.
I think that’s all for the past week. I went full details about what happened in my life in this post so hopefully you’ll like reading as much as I loved writing it.
How was your week though? Tell me everything in the comments!
With love, Anaïs
