Joyeux Anniversaire Emile
Hooray. A trip out to the Lac de Vailhan to celebrate Emile's 8th birthday. The weather was glorious.
And then it wasn't.
So it was back to Anne and Pascal's for presents and (slightly soggy) cake. But the best cake is always (slightly soggy) cake.
When the sunshine came back we managed to get to the park. Here's them, all lined up and communing with the ducks:
And here's us, you don't often see us, all lined up and enjoying a child-free moment. Them were around. Somewhere. For any concerned readers, I promise we left the park accompanied by the same number of children with which we arrived.
A nice RTBC day. Although none of it made me as cheerful as switching on the laptop when we came home to find that Jen was online and available for our first ever Skype chat. I was so excited to see my dear friend's face and to manage the closest I've come so far to saying a proper hello to her delightful offsprung.
