Bonjour lecteurs! My monthly highlights post is quite late. Pardon! The thing is, I was very busy trying to get all my Frenchie Christmas Giveaways live. Plus I was not feeling like reflecting on November 2019. Baba had been ill for about a week and a half and it really slowed me down with work. I lacked some sleep and I was not feeling wow… So not the best mindset to reflect on our past month!
I usually write my monthly highlights post in chronological order, but November 2019 is différent. Indeed, Baba got really sick the last week of the month and the following 10 days were intense.
I spent most of the time worrying that he had pneumonia again. And trying to get his temperature down.
We eventually managed to get an appointment at a GP and it was a chest infection… All back to normal now. This is why this post will be shorter than usual.
The truth is that little interlude stopped all plans we made and we pretty much stayed at home watching way too much TV and playing games.
Right, now off to share with you all the good bits!
Soon It Will Be Time To Go To School…
Exit the bad news! November was also a very exciting month for us!
Oui, Baba is starting school next September and I have been visiting our local options over the last few weeks.
How exciting! I can not believe he is already at that stage! I liked many of the places in our area and I will apply for our fave school by the end of the month. So it is all done and dusted!
Step Up School
Baba is not the only one to have had some exciting news… Last month, I made it to my first ever Step Up School Meet Up and I had such a lovely time!!!
If you don’t know what it is yet, the Step Up School is a London’s top female-focused career and business coaching course I signed up earlier this year.
The founder, Alice Olins is helping you to reach your career goals. I am extremely proud to be part of her community!
I met some fabulous ladies during the night but also online. If you are looking at options or thinking to try something new in 2020, check it out! It is always worth investing in yourself!
Online Influence Awards 2019
And a few days later, I also got to attend the fabulous Online Influence Awards 2019! It was such a glam night!
Another time I looked super Frenchie? When I baked some chocolate cake with Kitchen Aid! And me to pretend I was a chef in the cuisine, haha!
Another moment from November 2019 I want to remember is a Sunday in London with Nanny S. We went to see the Snowman at the Peacock Theatre and it was truly magical!
The production is utterly sweet with dancing, music and a magical set!
This is such a brilliant interpretation of the classique Christmas tale! I really recommend it! Baba was so happy! It is on until the start of January if you fancy booking your tickets.
We then headed to the Strand Palace for some lunch while Baba enjoyed some scones and cakes from the Afternoon Tea! What a life, eh?
November 2019 – Not An Easy Month But…
Looking back at it, November 2019 was probably one of the slowest months we had. But illness occurs and when it is the case, c’est important to pause and not stress about it.
Actually, I am lying here! I was really worried, especially when I saw that Baba was not getting better after a week or so.
But it is all behind us now and we still had some lovely moments before it happened!
One thing is for sure! I am ready for Christmas and a proper rest! Meeting deadlines while being non stop with a sick child was exhausting and I was not really good with my diet and exercise…
Merci again for reading my monthly highlights, even if this one might seem a bit dull and boring! 😇
See you soon for the next one and a full recap of 2019!
Disclosure: This post may feature some sponsored content I recently published but it is merely a list of my highlights (and the lows!) of the month! And a post for me to reflect and learn too!
