Hi everyone !
First of all : A very Happy Birthday to sunshinegirl/Denise !! Your celebratory meal sounded fab and I hope you enjoyed every morsel ! Have a lovely day today and you have certainly earned a drinkie or two xx
Talking of treats , well it has been an absolute joy catching up with my son and I am glad to see he is adapting to life in France without issues ( despite the cold !) Amazingly he started applying for jobs last Monday and had immediate interest with Zoom interviews throughout the week, leading to a job offer last Thursday !! It’s in the Paris region ( his field is sports marketing and advertising so no surprises everything happens in Paris) He is due to start his new job on the 21st and so decided to stay on in the South a little longer .Happy Mum !!!
So yes, we have been out for lunches and an evening meal, I have been cooking a lot and so my fasting has been put on hold .
Am I bovvered ?
There will be time to get back on track this weekend . This time is special . The next stage is for Oliver and his partner to find a flat around Paris and he can work from home some days to allow them to come back down here and we can always visit of course . It won’t be anything luxurious as rents in Paris are crazy .I am not complaining though because for me, their being in Paris is like the next village compared to Australia !! 🙂
I just need my eldest son to come back ( hopefully for a visit this summer ) Merry, he loves his life in Australia ! I see borders are opening very soon and tourists will once more be allowed to visit .
I’ve just read through this week’s posts . I’ve added Nathalie and Bravefast800er to the list, welcome !
Thinking of Elle Mae who is going into hospital today .Hope all goes well xx
Tulip/Clare all the very best for your upcoming interview !
About spiralisers .I first bought a manual one which was fine and then tried an electric one which was abit fiddly but OK. I tend to forget about it and focus on cauliflower rice, roasted radishes etc but it does have a place for sure with courgetti .
I will sign off now but will pop back a bit later to set up the new weekly thread
Thanks for all your good wishes xx
