Rain

cure for rainToday is raining here in Athens and it makes me want to stay at home all day! Unfortunately this is not a choice…but if I could, this is what I’d do! A quick tip for such days:
My blue flamingo’s cure for rainy days is hot coffee (or tea, I always prefer coffee) and a cat! Also, warm socks, a blanket and a nice book are also helpful!

Monday

Processed with VSCOcam with a6 presetGood morning! It’s monday again and I’m so sleepy!!! I will need all the coffee in the world to get through the day and through the week probably… Let’s start our day/week with a real hug also, after that one in the mug!

Ideal working day…

Monday again and I am in the office trying to work in my computer. As I find it difficult to concentrate I am listening to the song of Peggy Lee “Black coffee”.

I love this song..it’s rythm gets me in the mood for working for some reason. And at this moment, I started to think that it would be better to be in a nice, quiet coffee house and work from there. Listening to music like this, don’t be distracted by the fuzz but at the same time be in an environment where people pass by, talk etc. So, I will present to you some coffee houses that could work for me and could mentally travel you as well outside of the office. As you will see I prefer dark colours and wooden furniture, maybe this atmosphere helps me concentrate, I don’t know!
