++ Nicola from Growing Berries sent me this pillow. Isn’t it the cutest thing? The LPV has been immortalized in the coziest way. I love my Le Petit Village pillow!
++ My mother arrived safe and sound yesterday. I was too lazy to cook (plus I figured that after a flight from Texas to Chicago to Paris and the the TGV to Aix and the car ride to Le Petit Village, she’d be too tired to care) and since Thursday night is Pizza Night in The LPV, pizza it was! Total daughter fail I know, but I am planning on making up my laziness to her… with cheese.
++ On Saturday night we’re having a Raclette (tis the season you know). We’re going to Toulon to watch Mr. London play on Sunday, so we all thought, why not go on Saturday night and hang out? (Actually, this was totally Mr. London and The Husband’s idea, and in the interest of full disclosure, Mr. London really wanted us to come down today, but c’mon, I’ve got stuff to do for heavens sake). Not only will this be my mother’s first Raclette, but it’s Mr. & Mrs. London’s as well. I’m super duper excited. I love spreading the joy of cheese. I’m like the Ambassador of Cheese.
++ When The Husband and I first met, it was the beginning of the holiday season (28th November to be exact) and before going on dates, we would meet up in front of the large Christmas tree on O’Connell Street in Dublin and then stroll hand in hand under all the festive lights that were strung about the city. Because of this memory, Christmas lights make me feel all warm and fuzzy. Just felt like sharing I guess.
++ Remember how The Husband had never seen Harry Potter until a couple of months ago? Well the other night, we watched the second one, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (‘Harry Potter et la Chambre des Secrets’… that’s not too strange at all). I’m pretty sure we’ll be watching all of them over the holidays. Fine by me. Harry Potter is one of those things that feels Christmassy.
++ I can’t stop listening to French pop songs from the 60’s (like that Zou Bisou Bisou song that Megan sang on Mad Men) specifically Laisse Tomber Les Filles. I’m driving The Husband batty.
++ So now that we’ve passed 12/12/12, let me ask you a question, do you think the world is going to end on 21/12/12? Do you think anything will happen at all or do you think it will just be a day, like any other? (And yes, I wrote 21/12 and not 12/21 because I’m European like that.)
++ And one more thing… The 2012 Expats Blog Award will be announced tomorrow. With so many amazing expat in France bloggers out there, I barely stand a chance, but I thought I’d give it a go anyway, and maybe if I’m lucky, can end up in the top ten. If you would be so kind as to leave a little comment love (comments = votes), I would be ever so delighted. (To leave a comment you can either click here or on that blue button).
