Last sunday was Pentecost what means a long holiday weekend with holidays from Saturday until Monday, schools even until Tuesday. As I was invited to a so-called network meeting (see photo below) in Ljubljana on saturday evening we decided to spend our vacancies there.

As it happened to be the second in May that Sunday was not only Pentecost but also mother‘s day. I was looking forward to spending it in Ljubljana, as I‘m born and grown up in Klagenfurt, a town only a hundred kilometers away. So – at that time, many many years ago – my parents used quite often to undertake a day trip to Ljubljana and so this time the 3 days’ stay was also a nice reflection of my childhood.

Tomorrow morning my daughter is going to leave for France for one week, she will be staying in Nantes, a quite strange feeling knowing my little baby so far away (nearly) on her own… it a school activity, so she will be with her class mates, strange all the same…

So it seems from one day to the other it‘s me being a little girl visiting with my parents Ljubljana and the next moment it‘s my little girl who is travelling on her own so far away…

post scriptum: bon, j’ai pitié avec les francophones, alors voilà un sommaire:
Le weekend passé j’étais avec ma famille a Ljubljana (Slovénie) en vacances de Pentecôte pour 3 jours; avant tout pour relaxer et aussi parce que le samedi soir il y avait un “network meeting”.
Le dimanche était la fête des Mères et j’étais très contente de la passer cette fois a Ljubljana – une ville où j’étais très souvent dans mon enfance avec mes parents comme Klagenfurt est tres proche. A l’époque c’était moi l’enfant et maintenant déjà ma propre fille commence à mener sa propre vie comme elle va partir en France pour une semaine avec sa classe et sans ces parents…
