Bonjour mes amies. I am just letting you know that I spent a large part of yesterday catching up on uploading photos to my Flickr site.  Should you wish to see where I have been, what I have eaten recently and what crazy antics I have been up to (because we all know I am slightly insane), then please feel free to peer into my world

Holiday Snaps

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

For anyone interested in seeing where I went and what I ate over Christmas and New Years, you can see my holiday photos on my Flickr site. Highlights include movies of crazy Dutch fireworks, a hill in Holland, and a GIANT spring roll.

Look! Photos!

I have spent the past two days uploading photos from my trip to Portugal on to my Flickr site. I could have been eating pastries; visiting the Mona Lisa; or staring out the window at the grey skies and falling leaves, but no. I was spending my time uploading photos so that you, lovely people, could look at them and feel a sense of involvement in my travels. Aren’t I generous? Now go and look at them.

Just a taste of the great photographs that await you...

Photo Selection

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Yesterday Tom and I went to the Bastille Day Parade. Well… we tried to. They had blocked off so many roads and the metro wasn’t stopping in the middle of the Champs Elysee so we had to walk a long way and didn’t get very far with the masses of people doing the same thing. We managed to see a bit of the parade, including the Foreign Legion which was the bit I wanted to see anyway. My photo of the bearded axe-men has been selected by the U.S. Yahoo Editorial to appear in their Bastille Day collection. Considering they only selected 17 images from all of Flickr, I’m rather pleased! Here’s the photo for your own enjoyment:

Look at those impressive beards!

We’re Back!

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

You’ll be overwhelmed to hear that we are back in Paris after a few days away in the north west of France. I will write a more detailed account soon and am about to go and upload all of my 600+ photos onto my Flickr site. Tom spent three of our five days lying in bed dying from the flu (I must admit he was sick… he certainly kept (keeps) me awake at night with his coughing) which wasn’t so great but I managed to enjoy myself!

Anyway just wanted to write a quick ‘Hello!’ and to say that I had my first French lesson this morning. I have to say it was a bit disappointing and frustrating. The level of French in my class varies significantly and some people don’t seem to actually want to be there. Lots of people sat and chatted to one another (or across the classroom) and we spent five whole minutes talking about how if you change the first letter in the word ‘vite’ then the meaning changes from ‘quick’ to a very rude word for female genitalia. Sure, amusing at first, but can we move on and learn something now?

I’m hoping it gets better. I learnt a few small things but I’m not sure I am going to become fluent as a result of these classes. Pity. Maybe I’ll make some friends but everyone already seems to have their ‘group’. We shall see.

Ok, off to Flickr.
