In Paris

Here I am sitting in the apartment as seen the last post and what an amazing trip we are having filled with everything you could imagine.....Snow falling as we walked the Christmas markets on the the champs elysee in Paris...Seeing Wicked at a beautiful Theatre in London!!! Eating warm bagettes and scrumptous pastries oh and the list just goes on and on and it is only day 9. Still just feels like a dream.... Climbing the Eiffel Tower tomorrow on our last day in Paris!!!! Can't wait :) Loads of photos to share with you all when I get home in 21 days !!!!!

Only 13 days to go!!!!!!!!



Plans are the proof a dream can come true!

Well I can't believe it has been so long since I have blogged....So many things happening I must say I really miss being here and chatting!!!! Since my darling daughter was about 10 her and I have been chatting about our imaginary trip to Paris...well in a few weeks we will be staying in this gorgeous apartment in Paris, I just can't believe it.... It still isn't real to me and I don't think it will feel real until we hop off the train in central Paris...We have 7 nights and I just can't wait...My little girl finished her last real day in the classroom yesterday...A week of exam block (she has 5 assessment pieces) and then her formal and graduation and then at 11.45 pm graduation day we will be on the plane to London :)...

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

This has surely been a year of change...A new shop, a business partner, trying to sell our family farm, my little 14 year boy reaching 6 ft, Kirstie's last year of school and so on and trying to know where I fit into all this has been a bit of a struggle for me I must say...It has all been a little bit too fast for my liking :) Even though my kids are bigger now I still see being a good and stable mum as the greatest job I will ever have...I feel privileged and blessed to watch them achieve and more importantly smile their way through there days...

When we lose one blessing, another is often, most unexpectedly, given in its place.
