I'm sitting in the wrong place

Converse, Rue Montorgueil

What's this? This free time of which people speak? It does exist, and I've stumbled into some.

I should be sitting in a cafe chair discussing something important or laughing about something trivial, but here I am, on the couch (my office).

Jenna (my partner in ad agency crime) tried to drag me out into the real world for lunch, but I've been more successful thinking about the free time than I have been utilizing it. I need to get off my butt, but the whole concept of fresh air Monday through Friday is foreign to me.

Speaking of butts, quite the smoker in the above photo, huh?

Know what you speak of. I didn't even notice the butts!

Enjoy the free time while you have it. I would tell this to my 18-year old self if I could…

I'm selfishly happy that you have had a bit of free time. ;)

Ha, I'm really bad at utilizing free time myself. I can sit for hours wishing I was doing something when all I have to do it erm… actually do it.

I'm so good at utilizing my free time… that people seem to think it's all I have

I didn't notice the butts either… I was like… whaaa… then I was like… ooohh. gotcha.

I'm sitting in the wrong place too…a windowless office (made much nicer by your fab paris prints, though..) :)

Hah! It does not exist unless you are somewhere in Tahiti! Seriously, it is something you must carve out.

i know what you mean, with 10 hr days and two kids, i don 't know how to do me time anymore!

Yay for a little extra free time…I am fanatic about spending most of my free time away from the computer and outside these days (before it gets 100 degrees in LA!)

This is why I don't blog over the weekend! lol

Brilliant! So glad i gave up!

Off to Paris next weekend to sit and chill and not smoke whilst in a cafe watching the world go by. Used some of your pics on my blog for inspiration. Hope that's OK? x ;)
