Ou est le marche de Noel le plus proche, s'il vous plait?

I was doing so well in my quiet resolve to keep Christmas until Christmas; I really was! 'Twas the month before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was coveting, not even the strawberry mice, but then....

The mother of a singing friend who studies in Paris proudly emailed the brochure for Beatrice's first public performance. On the evening of Sunday 5th December. A little seed was sown. A big present from PC was the fruit!

Hence a very excited friend and an extremely excited I will be flying to Paris on the Saturday- well, a lunchtime flight on Sunday wouldn't make the travelling worthwhile?- and coming home on the Monday. The third Sunday in Advent represents Peace- peace and beauty and beaucoup de chocolat or indeed vin chaud.

For this is where we plan to spend lots of time!

ps If anyone knows how to do accents in bloggais, I would obviously need a crash course!

Oh my goodness! What a lucky duck you are!
I shall work on the Bat Grandma photo in exchange for the stripes of your carpet!

How brilliant for you! You will so enjoy Paris in the festive season.

Bon bon bon voyage, and I hope you and l'amie march airily from carafe to carafe, from chic trinket to even chicer trinket and come home laden just short of fiendish excess baggage restrictions, and if you'll excuse more hoping I also hope we'll see your carpet before you go as I so love stripes.

Wow, that is going to be fantastic! The trouble about the accents is that the French have them on their keyboards, therefore don't know any special tricks for those with QUERTY boards. The one that used to work for me before we went AZERTY was to type in Word, then cut and paste into Blogger. There's no way I would do that for every word, though! I just did it for key ones that looked weird without accents.

Oh wow! What a lovely treat for you - I have never been to Paris at Christmas time but I am sure it is very special. Enjoy

What a fine beginning to celebrate Christmas! I like to wait, like you, but sometimes you must enjoy the moments as they come.

Have a blessed time!
