back and ready

31 12 2008

explosionI am back from France and ready for New Year’s Eve. I am working today ๐Ÿ˜ฆ but should be free early in the afternoon, or at least I hope. I will be starting drinking at home with few friends. After we will be heading to the Tiger Tiger – club bar and grill! ๐Ÿ™‚ What a name! We will have a 5 courses dinner there and then stay for dancing. Dine and dance is the best formula for this kind of event.

Important fact to know, public transport are free and running all night tonight. Waouh!

Song of the day: paint it black by The Rolling Stones – sorry about yesterday, I didn’y put any music but I weren’t in the mood.

Today has been a quiet day. While the others went out yesterday night, I went to bed! Yes you read it: I went to bed. I caught up on my sleep and I woke as they were waking up this morning! ๐Ÿ™‚ And guess what, it was my housemate’s bday on Friday and a friend’s bday yesterday so today I cooked for them: yoghurt cake with vanilla sugar and chocolate chips for dessert and gratin dauphinois and roast beef for the main course. It s gonna be good guys! sorry you are not all here but come see me and I ll do the same for you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Song of the day: groupe de garรงons by Les amis d’ta femme – pay attention to the lyrics

Tonight I am not sure I will be able to add another day to my page about my trip to Guatemala as I am going to eat to La Gazette. This week, it is Moules – frites (mussels and chips) with a glass of Picpoul for ยฃ10! ๐Ÿ˜›

Song of the day: Indi Groove by chinese man – very good electro french music. Lisa, I am not sure that is the one I listened to at your place, but this one is good!

I am back! and I am not alone! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I brought with me a 1.5kg roastbeef to cook soon, andouillettes, cheeses (creamy fatty brillat savarin, goat cheese, brie), saucissons, bottles of wine, chocolate, mustard, biscuits! I love France! ๐Ÿ˜› And just to make you salivate, on sunday I had:

This is a good carpaccio de boeuf avec frites maison eaten at L’รฉpicerie in Dijon. This is a restaurant where my sister likes to go.

Yes Papa, I know, we talk too much about food but i like it so much… I mean good food not cheddar and beans on toast. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I will talk about something else next time.

My next car :)

Because I go to visit my friend Aurelie this week end, I won’t be able to post anything therefore I write another message or more accurately, I show you another video. This is an ad for Skoda that we can currently see on TV here in the UK.

Song of the day: Gypsys Queens from the Balkan Beat Box – very very good mix with lots of dancing music as we like from Kusturica’s movies

Today, surprise, surprise, it is raining. MacRain, we love it! ๐Ÿ˜€

Yesterday we held our 2nd bbq at home. The weather wasn’t like for our 1st but we had fun. Here is the invitation I sent. As usual, you will recognize my style:


Last time was a success. We were able to keep the sun for a while without killing someone – only animals. We would like to try again Sunday. The details are the same.

So if you want to get burnt, sing around a fire, like rosรฉ, clean a house, love fresh beer, do some laundry, want to eat a horse, do some train spotting, come with us. We provide fork, knife, hoover, sofa, food, washing powder, trains, barbie and all the needed tools

Oh before I forget, we need a volunteer for the sacrifice. ๐Ÿ™‚

See you
Julie, Karen, Bernadette & Alex

lundi c’est ravioli !

Song of the day: American boy by Estelle – this is the song you can listen to everywhere here. She is British and has a nice voice. It is not the kind of music I usually listen to but this one makes me dance and I have to say that she is not bad at all.

Hope the week has a nice beginning for everybody. Here it is sunny but called but they expect sun for this week end. So who’s up for a barbie this week end?
