The snow-cleared roads now enable us to drive out to our local 'La Poste' with our Ebay and Etsy parcels . I have always described the building as Spring blue, but today it could easily be Ice blue!!
I love the latest set of stamps which I saw for the first time today.....a little Parisian 'frou frou' you could say. It does mean that I will now have to write some 'real' letters and cards instead of just sending emails!
We had intended to stop off for coffee at a friends house today but, as you can see, the road up to their maison in Capponet was underwater and, with no flippers or snorkels in the car, we had to abandon our plans.
So, instead, we nipped into the local cafe - and enjoyed a divine cappucino - so full of cream that the spoon literally stood up in it. And to accompany the coffee, a little chocolat morceau......purely to keep out the cold of course!!!
And yes.....I am NOT sorry!!! I have given in and bought myself one of those large fleecy blankets with sleeves which I shall wear when I slump on the sofa at night. It`s rich chocolat brown and soooooooooooooo soft! I don`t care; no one will see me wearing it except Mark, Diggers and Charles - and they will all be sworn to secrecy!!!
I have just been told that the weather forecast for the next 24 hours is snow again! I now wish I had brought home a supply of those chocolat treats!
Add.....excuse me but how rude? I have just been told I look like Friar Tuck in my fleecy blanket.....am I bothered?....fleece?..blanket?...monk?....I aint bothered!!!!
