The man-who-installs-broadband is due to call this afternoon and I may not have set up the wi-fi network before we head to Paris for the anniversary trip. So I may be relegated to collecting mail through mobile office on the laptop.

It'll give me a chance to teach MWNN how to use it though - he's been avoiding it for some time now.

Ooooh, lovely icon!

It is, isn't it? Can't take the credit for it, though. preetybird made it for me just before Christmas.

The icon is beautiful. Did you make it from a picture you took ?
Have fun in Paris ! The last time I was there many years ago the whole town was covered in snow. Though it was beautiful, I want to go back in the spring or summer some day.

preetybird made the icon for me, before she deleted her LJ.

We go to Paris every year for our anniversary on March 1st. It usually snows as I'm driving the last leg into Paris! It's snowing in England now, so I expect it'll snow next week while we're in France.

We love Paris much more than London. We've even moored our narowboat in the Arsenal basin (on the site of the Bastille) the first time we cruised the French waterways, in 2000. It was our pied-a-leau. I'd love to be there over the winter but, unfortunately, our permanent mooring is down near Macon and the logistics of doing it are too expensive for making this possible.

that does sound nice with the snow. I've only been once but loved it.

If I had the money an ideal way to spend the day would be to hop onto Eurostar in London first thing in the morning, get into Paris and spend the day in the Louvre, or in one of the many gardens, or sitting along the Seine in a lovely cafe watching the world go by etc, and then heading back home in the evening.

Ah well, one can dream :)
