Dear blogging planet,
No I haven’t forgotten you ! I did come back from
Since I came back, my blog kept nagging me, come on tell us what you did in
let me see..
Er…yes, it’s still there but I always saw it from afar and anyway like any ordinary Parisian I must confess I've been only twice to the Eiffel tower, first as a kid with my parents, then when an American friend came over to visit me. And it is actually quite nice to have tea at the Eiffel tower.
Is Paris still romantic ?
The reason for my so…extended silence is that since I came back, life suddenly became hectic
like Parisian traffic can be. I took these photos on the bus coming from
And I’ve been running like this young woman whom I briefly shot on Pont des Arts.
As soon as I came back, the business partner started to send loads of work constantly which meant working also during week ends. One thing, Monchéri wasn't too happy about, also he slightly complained that whenever he called while I was in
This time, alas my mom had no shoes for me…well…can’t always be lucky, n’est-ce pas ? It was so nice to see her and my two sisters, and my nieces and one of my beau frère (brother in law) whom I meet only once or twice a year. Both my sisters live in
Anyway, “little froggy” was in great shape and she made all of us laugh to tears as she very unexpectedly got a bit drunk and insisted on trying on all the clothes she bought to go to the Big Red Island. (as you might have guessed, my mom is crazy about clothes). It was great to catch up with all the news, my younger sister is going to
My dad called twice while I was there. The first time, he asked me and my sisters which color we would like our bedroom to be. I thought it was so cute of him to think about that kind of detail. Alas, the second time he called was to say that a cyclone (Ivan) was nearing the island and he found himself with no electricity. Actually, he was going to put an anti-cyclonic roof that week. Luckily he was safe. I looked it up on internet when I got back home and read Ivan caused 44 deaths and some 140 000 persons have lost their home.
I will definitely post more about Paris tomorrow...Thank you so much for all your lovely messages !
ps: you know what? I think blogging is fantastic ! I missed it so much...
