Recently some friends of mine flew off to Paris for their very first time!! my attempts to hide in their luggage failed and they flew off without me .. ( i couldnt go due to work)
Me being me and secretly wishing I was Parisian . . . gave them a good prep talk on my beloved city and handed over my Bible (- not an actual bible but the best tour book i have ever bought which successfully saw me around paris without getting lost three years straight!)
Off they skipped and judging by the photos had an amazing time, and i do believe they have caught the Parisian bug and plan a second trip later in the year which i am determined to go on.
As a thank you for letting them take said 'bible' they bought me back these amazing little treats, an old print of the moulin rouge on a tea towel which will look grand in my new kitchen and ... hold it ... yes a MACAROON .. nom nom deeeeeelicious.
MERCI BEAUCOUP MES AMIS !!!
