I love having people around, like to prepare their breakfasts, plan cozy diners or show them around our 'home abroad'. As you can imagine, it's pretty difficult to keep up with the daily routine... So that's why I haven't been here on a regular basis... but will try to make it up in the coming weeks!
First of all I have a winner to announce: it's Elly of Elly's kleine Idylle. Congratulations Elly! I can recommend you to visit her blog, it is, as the name says, a 'small idyll', beautiful pictures & serenity. Have a look!!
Elly, if you can email me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org, I will send your presents as soon as possible!!
A bunch of pictures to follow, just from the last 2 weeks:

Notre Dame... from the side
The boys on one of the bridges, watching all the 'bateaux mouches' full of tourists passing by
One of the 'bouquinistes' along the Seine
Arc de triomphe on a Saturday morning
View over the Champs Elysées and Place de la Concorde
Montmartre & the Sacre Coeur, view from the Arc de Triomphe
On the other side: La Défense
Great weather... :)
Wishing you all a great week!
That was quite a mouthful... a busy bee! BUT we've done that for years; being a tourguide; a chef for three meals a day; a housekeeper... on and on but I loved doing it. Not that it is always appreciated. Friends yes, but family is a lot more demanding.
Glad that I had my Mom here several times and I was wise enough to have them last visit for six weeks. They could rest in-between and have a more relaxed time. So glad it was before she got on her dialysis as travel is now completely out of question.
Paris looks lovely from your pictures! Bet they all enjoy it and you certainly have a lot of choices for entertaining. We always had to drive a minimum of two hours to a big city... one way that is.
Lots of love,
En..dan sta je op, de zon schijnt al volop en dan start je de computer op om de laatste posten te lezen en...dan zie je tot je grote verbazing dat je een "give away" hebt gewonnen.
Superleuk!!!!Mijn dag kan niet meer stuk. Ook heel leuk hoe jij mijn blog omschrijft (bloos, bloos).
Ik maak er t.z.t. natuurlijk een leuke post van op mijn blog.
En ja...Parijs, dat is "een place to be". Jouw foto's zijn heel mooi en roepen bij mij veel herinneringen op. Zijn vaak met de kinderen door de stad geslenterd.
Lieve groetjes, Elly
Fijn dat jullie zulke heerlijke weken hebben gehad. De foto's getuigen daarvan!
Een gezellige avond & lieve groet,
