Lately our work schedule has been crazy. I have my regular day schedule plus I've accepted teaching a night class a week and a Saturday morning class. It's a bit much, I know, but I figured I'd do it now before I turn 30. I promised MR I will slow down eventually. MR is quite the busy bee as well. He works an average of 5-6 days a week and only has 1 weekend off a month. It's no surprise when you work in the health service. Which is why I suggested that MR and SO join me in Metz after my Saturday morning class. The weather has improved and one can already feel Spring coming. After weeks of winter, a day of shopping and eating was exactly what we needed.

Last August, I was asked to go to Strasbourg for work for a day. I love the city of Strasbourg in France and although I've been there for a couple of times now there's still so much for me to explore. And of course, it's always a pleasure to revisit my favorites.

I love my husband, MR, but I swear some days he exasperates me. Just today, for example, he conveniently went to work at 6AM with all of our keys! Grrr ... Both house keys. Both car keys. And my car's spare key as well. Again .... Grrrr!!! It would have been fine I guess, or a lesser deal, if I wasn't supposed to be working today. But I was. Imagine my shame and discomfort calling my boss and telling her the reason why I couldn't come in. *insert long sigh * Again, I love my husband, but today, he's my no. 1 enemy.

When we showered and dried off from our late afternoon swimming session, we were all feeling really hungry. Anyone who knows us knows it isn't a good thing. MR gets impatient, I'm cranky, and SO strangely tries to sleep it off.

When working non-stop from Monday to Saturday (which includes long trips and stressful days), the last thing I want to do is take my car and use whatever energy I have left in me. But I figured, if I don't make the extra effort, my family and I would never do anything fun together. Which is why MR, SO, and I found ourselves in the car on our way to Center Parcs - Les Trois Forets in Hattigny, France last Saturday afternoon.

This cake is simply amazing! It's become a family favorite and I've probably made it a dozen times now. For the family, for friends, for colleagues, and even trainees! The reviews have been beyond positive by everyone, even from my fiercest critics! And that's before I tell them, that it's a special cake with a special ingredient which replaces the fat - butter / oil / cream / creme fraiche / yoghurt. So not only is this cake delicious, but it's part of a guessing game too!

A couple of days after eating lunch at Ayako Sushi (click here for the post), I was in another Japanese restaurant. This time around I was in Eat Sushi in Metz, France. My morning was spent correcting school papers and it wasn't exactly as pleasant as I had hoped. When the papers are nicely-written, there's no problem, but when it's the contrary, it is hard to give a bad grade. It's a very conflicting feeling and gives me headaches at times. Which is why I found myself walking around the streets of Metz at lunch time. I wasn't particularly looking for a place to eat, just fresh air, but when I stopped to tie my shoelaces in front of Eat Sushi, I told myself, "Why not?"
