It's been a very bitty time lately. Lots of little things going on. Nothing major, just stuff like Poppy continuing with her desensitisation (doesn't that look like an odd word?) shots. No real improvement yet, but I do now have a good and effective herbal spray which is a deterrent against her biting her skin. So, whilst she is not really better with her allergies, her tendency to self-mutilate is disappearing.
Been out and about (like everyone in the world I guess) buying pressies for Christmas, although I do do the bulk of my shopping online. We'll be in Paris for a couple of days next week and I'm planning to go to shops like Fauchon and other little specialist shops around the Madeleine area (that's where our hotel is). So looking forward to seeing the Christmas lights along the Champs Elysee. That will be a first for us.
I'll also be meeting up with a cousin of mine who is now working for a government department in Paris. Yes - a non-French woman who is a successful civil servant - quite a rarity, really. However, she has specialist knowledge of avian flu and mad cow disease and has had a great career travelling the world advising various agricultural commissions about latest developments.
The days and weeks drift by here in a haze of pottering around doing bits and pieces. I absolutely love it.
