Usually the Luxembourg gardens looks bleak in winter, but whether it was because we were imbibed with the Christmas spirit or it was the sunshine, or we were just in relaxed romantic mood, I don’t know but today it looked wonderful. Calm and green and elegant…. and the most romantic place in the world. People often ask … Continue reading

CHRISTMAS 2012..and on the twelfth day…..it was better than watching the 35th rerun of Morecambe and Wise!
“What did you do in Paris over Christmas?” people ask. Well it sounds pathetic to say “not much, we just meandered” but that is what we did. “The weather is bright and dry, so feeling very refreshed after our very good sleep, and hearty breakfast in the hotel, we wander through Paris, just enjoying being with each other and … Continue reading
CHRISTMAS 2012, on day eleven,..my true love gave to me, a magical beginning.
As you gave gathered by now, I left my computer at home out of respect for Michaels wish and I did not want to be distracted form “us” on this trip. So I apologise for keeping everybody in suspense but here is what I wrote from my notebook. —————————————– There is something about travelling late … Continue reading

CHRISTMAS 2012…..day 10. The meaning of christmas
It is almost as if I have woken up to Christmas this year. All these years I have ignored it, I have never really noticed what was going on. Now I am noticing the pretty lights, the traditions, the good humour and the cards people send, all brightening up what is otherwise a dark, wet, … Continue reading
Christmas 2012…day 9. you have to have a bit of a laugh. HO!, HO!, HO!.
Just sharing this I heard on the radio. I am so bored sitting here nursing my sore back. I have discovered that Paracetamol and Ibuprofen are better for my back pain than codeine and diazepam, which just made me go looney! Nice at the time but I didn’t like the after effects. (just as an aside, I was shocked … Continue reading
CHRISTMAS 2012…..and on the eighth day, there has to be Panto!
So disaster strikes. Or rather something has struck my back and I have been literally floored by acute back pain. Was sent to A&E yesterday and they sent me home with drugs to rest as I can hardly walk. Not even being used to alcohol, the drugs sent me on a trip last … Continue reading
CHRISTMAS 2012…..Day 7…….there has to be trifle!
One of my favourite bloggers is Sylvia of Finding Noon, and a couple of days ago she was asking what foods scream “CELEBRATE” at you and in my reply. I completely forgot SHERRY TRIFLE. http://findingnoon.com/?p=2450 This very English dessert is a MUST at Christmas or any other celebration.. There are lots of variations and every family must … Continue reading
CHRISTMAS 2012…and on the 6th day, I am dreaming of a Parisien Christmas.
Can’t sleep, lots of stuff going on at work re job losses. Keeping me awake. So I am dreaming of Paris, where I will be in 6 days. Just found the above video and decided to share it. The amazing thing is, I recognise most of the locations. Love Denise Continue reading
CHRISTMAS 2012…on the fifth day
On the fifth day I look forward to watching yet another Christmas food programme from a celebrity chef. Last night it was Nigella with Nigellissima, an Italian inspired twist on Christmas food. The fragrant Nigella flirted her way through the programme which was illustratedby shots of Venice and London in the Christmas lights, in between showing Nigella … Continue reading
