France is not very well at all. Though we had a great time visiting our newly pregnant daughter and her partner we were well aware of the problems France is facing at the moment.
Strikes meant no travelling into the centre of Paris this time,
Charlotte's internet connection was temporary and VERY slow. On the last day it was repaired and went like sh*t off a shovel, just my luck.
During the last few days the strikers closed down the refineries causing us to drive at two miles a fortnight on all journeys for fear of running out of diesel to get us home. The queues at the petrol stations were unbelievable.
I did however decorate 5 rooms in 3 days at Charlotte's house. One being the nursery for our new little Granddaughter due in February. Photos will follow when Charlotte gets around to taking them.
On the last 2 days we visited a fabulous Depot Vente and an exceptional brocante in the little town of Lizy-Sur-Ourcq. Above is the Moulin in the town, shabby and charming all at the same time.
Here are some of the pieces we picked up including lots of lovely pieces given to us by the lovely Tara (Paris Parfait) and
some more. I LOVE getting it all home and deciding what to do with it before it graces the pages of Ghost Furniture. Speaking of home, after a long drive, stopping off in Notting Hill at the Mydeco offices and West Hampstead to see a customer, we returned to our cosy cottage to find that
it wasn't cosy at all as we had run out of LPG for our central heating. I slept with my clothes on!!!!
