I have another weekend advice for you. We all need space and by space I don't mean a spacious home, I'm referring to solitude, time for ourselves. When I need space I like going alone to a café. I bring my notebook and a magazine or a book, sometimes my laptop. I like finding a window seat and I sit there all by myself without anyone bothering me. I only need an hour or two and then I return home rejuvenated. If this is something you never do then try it this weekend and if you have a partner and children then give your partner the opportunity to get some space too. Getting space is essential.
If you expected to find fashion on the blog today then please note that I have moved those posts to Wednesdays and changed the name. I would like to thank you for the kind comments on NOTES À LA MODE 01. As I'm taking the weekends off from blogging I will use Fridays to wish you a good weekend and give you some personal advice to get you to slow down just a bit. I will try to find a photo that relates to the content of the post and today Tsuguharu Foujita's painting fitted well. My advice on Fridays will not essentially be something I plan to do during the weekend myself, it will just be something short and simple which works well for me.
Just because I was asked if I had followed my own advice in my Saturday post then let me give you this answer: I can honestly say that I did with only one exception. Instead of trying a recipe I hadn't tried before I made something I hadn't made in a long time. And the TV thing is easy because I never watch TV unless there is something special going on. The last time I watched it was 26 February when I watched the Oscars. There was a time in my life when I watched TV every day and I followed endless series; I even watched the reruns. One day I realised what an utter waste of time it was. With the TV off it felt I had gained so many extra hours in the day, I started going earlier to bed and felt more energised. I dare you to try it, try one week without TV, don't even watch the news. Keep it off entirely and see how it affects your life.
