Hello everyone, I'm glad I've caught you.
How is your week going?
We're doing fine, I'm having a lovely time in Paris in the Spring.
I have just finished a pilates class in French! Woo hoo for still being able to find my toes and vaguely keeping up. I managed to carry it off until the end of the class when I thanked the instructor and she said in a loud voice:
'Argh, Vous êtes Anglais?'
At which point I firmly replied in my very best français:
'Non, Je Suis Australienne'
I mean who the bloody 'ell would admit to being English at the moment? Pardon my French!
This all takes me back to my days living in Belgium when I lived my daily life muddling through, only getting half of was said.
Nothing has changed. I am here pouring over the French newspapers, it is slightly more fun enjoying the Brexit news in French. However in English or French, it is a sad state of affairs.
And no, to all my friends back in far off lands, who all ask... I have no idea what is happening in Parliament, either the British nor French Parliaments, but thanks for still considering me an authority on the matter :)
Hey ho ... Insert French cat for a random change of direction!
On a happier note, I bought a beret made to support Parkies Pals. The fundraising is to raise awareness of Parkinson's and raise funds for Parkinson's UK.
You have to have a beret in France, don't you? I'm clearly not the best model for it, I was wearing it at more of a jaunty angle, but wanted you to see how beautifully it is made.
I have really enjoyed wandering around Paris, there is something interesting on every corner, how about some exotic bird street art?
My April Blogging from A-Z Challenge Wren's Worldwide Wanderings has firmly kicked off on Little Wandering Wren Travels. It makes me smile that A for Australia, B for Belgium and C for China, all countries I have lived in. Come on over if you would like to support me in my quest to blog each day in April!
A is for Australia: We started at the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, just outside Melbourne. Where I am firmly talking to the trees and taking in the beautiful gardens.
Coming next B is for Belgium. Those were fun years!
Ok, gotta dash got some blogs to write. À bientôt. Bisous!
