Easter trip

8 Apr

We’re going to Paris tomorrow. 🙂

We took Rosie to Paris for her 13th birthday, establishing a family tradition which Sylvie has refused to allow us to forget. For some reason, we didn’t take Cal for his though. So we are taking both for their 18th and 13th birthday’s respectively, along with two of Sylvie’s friends.

Chris is just going round the house emptying various pots, as he’s just discovered one with American dollars and Swiss francs in, so is betting on there being some euros lurking somewhere. Sylv is trying to persuade us that she absolutely cannot fit her stuff into fewer than 3 bags. Cal is watching Ratatouille (is that how you spell it) to get into the French vibe. And we’re going to drop down to say hi to Rosie – yes, she has got a decorated egg and some daffodils – in a bit.

How exciting. 🙂

Oh, and a few people have wondered where their comments go sometimes. If you use a different email address, or even different user name, your comment doesn’t show up until I moderate it. Most of the time that’s fine, but just sometimes, your comment goes into the spam list. And because there are zillions of spam comments, sometimes I don’t go through them and weed out the ones that aren’t spam.  I only realised recently that is what was happening. So I should find them okay now.

    That’s a lovely tradition. Hope you’re Eurostarring – don’t think the measly baggage allowances on most airlines these days (unless you take out a second mortgage) would cover 3 bags for the new teenager. Happy birthday Sylvie.
    Have a wonderful time, and hope that Chris’ euro hunt was fruitful and will pay for a few treats. Love to you all. x

    Wishin u a fabulous time and a very Happy Birthday to Sylvie 🎁🎂. Harrie made Easter nests by melting chocolate and then we had to dip balloons into it and let it set in the fridge. Yes, u guessed right we had the odd bursting of balloons and chocolate flying around the kitchen!!! 🎈

    Ooh la la indeed! Hope you all had a wonderful trip. We are planning to go to northern France (Somme battlefields and Normandy beaches) once the dog is in season (we are not allowed to take her abroad, and she goes into the GDBA kennels for her seasons). But it is odd planning a holiday when we have no idea when we will actually go.

    J’espere que vous avez passe un bon sejour a Paris et que vous n’avez pas eu la mal de mer…qu’est-ce que vous avez vu comme monuments?? Et vous avez bien mange? A Paris tout coute cher, je sais…..Et vous avez pris une couchette au bateau? Nous allons avoir une couchette pour rentrer, et nous allons rentrer entre le 3 mai et le 15 juin – on n’a pas encore une date precise!
    And yippeee…the papers have gone to the solicitors today and hopefully we’ll soon be back in dear old Gloucestershire!!! (We’ve loved it here and have no regrets, but it’ll be nice to catch up with old friends and family).
    Sorry no accents, mags.
