My goodness I feel like I’ve stepped into another world these past few days. Thursday we ventured out on the Metro (very hot and crowded) to Galleries Lafayette which is my favourite store. It’s kind of like a French Harrods. Kevin surprised me by taking me into a certain department and buying me a certain handbag I’ve wanted for years … I’m saying no more but here’s the wrapping.
Yesterday was time for another treat. I have always wanted to eat at Maxim’s restaurant and I finally went and did it! It certainly lived up to its reputation and the food was mouth-wateringly delicious. There was a pianist playing 1940s music to add to the atmosphere.
It was also a good excuse to get dressed up for once!
Here is one of the mirrors in the restaurant. All the decor is original art nouveau and absolutely amazing.
Herbie’s been having a battle holding onto his toys recently. Monty the spaniel from the next boat, Gillian B, has become a regular visitor. He’s a dear little chap but he does have a tendency for sneaking off with Mr Rattie or Mr Turtle …
Caught red pawed!!
Teddy just watches in amusement.
