So tomorrow afternoon I am abandoning my duties as a focused, hard working, dependable, hard-nosed businesswoman and heading to Paris – woo hoo!
Me, ‘im Indoors and the two stroppy teenagers are all going! We are rendezvousing in St Germaine with out bestest friends from when we lived in Sydney – who we haven’t see in nearly 5 years – and I’m seriously childlike in my excitement – its’ like my 10th birthday all over again when I got that purple bike I always wanted.. (then proceeded to ride down a hill ,crash and wreck it with 24hours -obviously made me very popular with my parents. NOT!
Anyway I digress, our friends Sally and Martin are hard party people.. Their dinner parties are stuff legends are made of and Martin is a cocktail making legend.. Basically if you were teetotal you were not invited to their house and everyone was normally blind drunk before any food ever made it to the table..Happy, carefree days!
Once when we went out to dinner we drank these cocktails which I called `Martins Marvellous Medicine’… a small but heartfelt tribute!
So maybe a blog from Paris will happen or maybe my need for a nurofen/bacon sandwich/coca cola/ Saturday morning breakfast will take precedence… we will have to see..
Try this tho- its delicious! Angeli x
