In my fridge....
...is a very special box...
...sitting next to a very special bag.
You see, we went to Paris! Yep, that's right, for the past few days we've been livin' it up en France. A very welcome break indeed after a particularly long and hard winter.
We'd both been to Paris before, separately, and not been too fussed by the place, and so wanted to see if going there together made a difference. It most certainly did. It's amazing what a difference being there together, and doing the right things (which mostly consisted of walking, looking, walking, looking, walking and sitting in cafes) makes to a city. I indulged N in visits to specialist places for his hobbies, and he indulged me in long walks across the city in search of famous bakeries all in the name of researching the perfect pain au chocolate. It's a good job we're patient with each other, love pastries and are happy to pause for a glass of fortifying French wine at every opportunity!
Now we're back, for a final few days of holiday lying around the house, with a perfect little box of heaven in the fridge waiting to be consumed with a very cold glass of white wine later today.
Back to regular posting soon, honest. Although before then you'll have to indulge me in a few posts about amazing Parisian yarn stores and other such experiences!
