|Peacocks a la parc!|
The children have been so great the last couple of days that I let them have a little treat...

Wednesday and Thursday with the children went a lot better than expected and I have enjoyed spending some proper time with them, as opposed to trying to get them ready for school/bed etc. They are at the activity centre again this morning, but I am picking them up to bring them home for lunch. It's very nice to have a couple of hours to myself this morning. I am super-tired!
It was great to get out of the house yesterday and spend some time with Betsy at the park. She is still on holiday from uni and is going travelling a bit round Europe on the train next week with some friends from America. I am rather envious! Being here in Nancy, I am not only experiencing French culture, but American too. We have discovered that, although we speak the same language there are a lot of cultural differences and I am looking forward to visiting Betsy in Wisconsin at some point!
One example: American people find it hilarious when you say 'loo' instead of 'bathroom'. When I first said it, they didn't know what I was talking about!
Anyway, I don't have much else to say this morning, not a lot has happened. I am looking forward to going to 'Colonie' with the family this weekend, I will let you know how it goes!Love to you all xxx
