A TRIP HOME


Notre dame de Paris

As you know I have spent the best part of 23 years living part of my year in France so this last 23 months have been a testing time for me. Although I cannot go and visit my family, I decided I couldn't stand not visiting my country any more so Thomas, Anna and I nipped over to Paris for a long weekend while André took the kids to his mum's.
It was wonderful to see all my old haunts - Paris is the city I know best in the world after Glasgow. To hear French everywhere again was a breath of fresh air. To smell the smells, taste the tastes and hear the different sounds.
I miss France. It was so lovely to go home for the weekend...
