Thanks to everyone who commented on my last post, and particularly to Juddie, whose comment this lunchtime made me realise it's been quite a while!
I nipped out with a friend to the Cath Kidston branch in Chiswick recently and couldn't resist buying this to hang on the side door from the laundry room leading out to our bike shed and bin store. ( The old tradesman's entrance!)
Cue usual chintz protest from my husband, but I'm justifying it as minimalist eco-purchase, keeping my carrier bags tidy and ready to re-use!
Meanwhile go-go mania has hit my son's school big-time. Think yourself very lucky if it hasn't hit your area yet - if it has you'll know what I mean, if not, you're probably mystified. They hurt your feet almost as badly as chunks of Lego when you step on them in a child's darkened bedroom in the middle of the night, but I was quite impressed that my son had lined them up so neatly!
We had a fab half-term break in Paris with the kids, where we rented an extremely tiny but extremely tasteful mini-flat in the Marais, right in the middle of all the elegant little shops and cafes that make you want to stay there forever. Luckily the kids are still a bit too young to make noises about going to EuroDisney, although I'm sure that will happen soon, so we spent the time pottering round museums and parks. I was left a bit cold by the sculptures at the Rodin museum ( what a philistine!) but I loved the house and gardens. Plus the sandwiches in the cafe are fab - and there's a tree growing up through the walls - what more could you ask for?!
