As I clear up paper plates and keep finding bits of cake in the most unexpected of places (inside the bath anyone?), it just seems extraordinary that when I moved over to the French Alps two years ago, I did not know anyone. Yet a couple of hours ago, I had to traipse carefully around my living-room to avoid stepping on small children, ate gorgeous cakes not made by me, and got spoiled rotten by many dozens of people.
Right at the end of another tough week, on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, our new house got well and truly warmed by the flooding sunlight, the oven I had forgotten to switch off, and all the friends who swarmed over to wish us well in our new life…
Among other things, there is officially a new love in my life, who has an impeccably trim body and does absolutely everything bar taking the bins out : Its name is Multipro by Kenwood… It just makes me want to cook again!
I cannot thank everyone enough for joining in the madness, for planting an apple tree in the garden, for making me feel safe and surrounded at a time when it is so easy to feel overwhelmed and isolated… It just makes me want to dance again!
To all the faraway friends & bloggers who joined us in spirit, turn up the volume and join me on the dance floor 🙂 !
