I'm so sorry, but ...

I can't do it anymore ...


I'm really sorry, I'm going to stop this blog for a while.
I'm unable to be on each front of the battle and I can't find necessary time to do everything in my life.

As I already said, I thought I could be Shiva.
I thought I would be able to work, take care of my children, of my home, able to cook, to create and make live a blog, to keep on writing shorts stories too (which are published on internet), and I have to accept I can't do it anymore.
I don't have enough time in a day.
Twenty four hours are not enough.

I'm just tired at the moment and my daily life is a little bit hard, busy and complicated.

I don't like blogs where posts are written once a month or more, and this is what I'm doing now...
Maybe I'm too demanding with myself.
Maybe I should accept to post just time to time.
And maybe this is what I'll do, one day.



Believe me, it's a hard decision I'm taking.
I hope it will just be for a short period. Just a break.

Thank you for all of you, readers who became friends or just single visitors. I loved each moment we crossed together and I've learned a lot thank to the blogosphere.

If some of you want to contact me, you can do it with my mail address, no problem. I would be glad to read you and reply to you. :)

As we say in french :"ce n'est qu'un au revoir", which means this is just a goodbye, not a farewell.
Hope to see you soon, friends.
Thank you FOR ALL.

    1. Sweet Jamie ! You don't even know how much it was important to me, to know someone really cooked our french recipes. As I said to Jep, I miss all of you. You are one of my first readers and commenter and it will always, always be enormous to me.
      I promise, if one day, I can write again, I'll hope you'll be there to read me.

  6. Hello Axelle, I have been traveling again - and just saw this upon my return to Zurich. It is so understandable that you should need a break. Take the time you need to catch up on daily life and if you feel rested, please return! It's so good to have your illustrated recipes to refer to and use for our own families. take care!

    1. Dear Jep, don't worry, I live in the south and here, it's what we call "Eté Indien" (Indian Summer). We use this expression when autumn is very hot and sunny. That's what there is here, fortunately. Thank you again.

  12. Dear Axelle - I have only today discovered your blog - braised steak with carrots, delicious. Your recipes look fabulous, I also live in France, near Cognac and am always looking for recipes with a French flavour. Hope you manage to get things back together again. Time with your family has to be a precious priority. Bon chance et Bonne's Fetes! Maybe we'll see you occasionally in the New Year.
