Happy Valentine!

Happy Valentine every body. I hope you all have a nice day.

We had a lovely weekend. Again a great weekend for rugby as England and France both won their matches. I wonder who I will support in two weeks when France and England are playing against each other !! hmm, let me think !! I could say I will support the winners but really I will support France !!

On Sunday, Andrew cooked this amazing Moroccan lamb for lunch and mussels for dinner. What a treat ! Andrew cooks mussels like no one else does. Last night he added pear cider and bacon and it was scrumptious. Tonight, I am cooking, lamb again !! ( we both went shopping separately and came back with quite similar shopping bags ! ). Kids are eating early and we should have a nice evening. Although, One Born Every Minute is on, not sure this is very romantic !!

Talking about romance I made a page for Shimmelle.com. I really liked the sketch and remembered a picture we took last year in France on our 10 year Anniversary. The setting was beautiful, really one of the most beautiful places in the world, a little village in the Ardeche called Labeaume. The food was really delicious. All sounds perfect but in fact the kids were misbehaving and the service was appalling !! hey, this is France !!. Never mind it was still a great day to remember !!
The tittle is La Vie Est un long Fleuve Tranquille. Which means, life is a long calm river. I am know I am very lucky but I have always had a very happy and easy life. I remember my childhood with very fond memories of my parents and grand parents. My job has always been rewarding and stress free and I am grateful for a lovely family.
Anyway, here is the sketch:

And here is my page ...

And from a bit closer...

Well I hope you all have a very nice evening.
