Home alone

I have been on the quiet side these days as I am just not inspired to write. I know that there are a few people out there who will pop by sometimes. Here's a little update for you.
Seb is away in Germany for two weeks and I will have my husband only for the weekend. I am enjoying my time alone for the moment because in two weeks time, our home will be overcrowded. My mom and sister are coming, along with my grand-uncle and my auntie Lily; mom's best friend. That's quite an entourage, isn't it?

Mom had been to France alone twice and I asked her to come with someone this time. Auntie Lily agreed to come along. Then my grand-uncle decided to come along too. And at the last minute, my dear sister joined in. Good thing we have two spare rooms so all the ladies shall squeeze in one room and my grand-uncle in the other.

They will be here for two weeks and I have already planned our trip. Yeah, I am taking two weeks of leave to spend time with them. Though France itself is very big and two weeks is not enough to visit everything here, my visitors would like to taste England. So we will be doing a day trip to London. Gare du Nord is just a station away from my place. With the new Eurostar station in London, it takes only 2hours 20mins to get there.

We will also spend 4 days in the south-west of France. We will travel by train, rent a 7 seater car and stay in bed-and-breakfast. I hope my visitors will enjoy Pays-Basque. I shall be able to write something about Pays-Basque in October. In the meanwhile, I doubt I will write much again.

Oh yeah, Mamamia is out in the cinema tomorrow. I am going to watch it with Anca. Her husband is also on business trip this week and none of our husbands wants to watch it. So we shall have a great ladies' nite.

It's really over-crowding this time round with so many pple going to stay over at your place the same time *faint*

But I'm sure u will make a great host... and by the time I visit u, u can be a qualified local guide. Keke... maybe u can consider a change of job in a couple of yr's time.

Actually, I am tired of being a guide. Don't mind hosting friends at my place. Glad that this big group is the last one for this year.
I prefer to work in office than be tour guide repeating the same things. ;)

SIG a dit…

Wow, how fun. Keep us updated.
