Day 3 – Paris

Started the day with a run in the Gardens of Luxembourg. Quite hard because there were a lot of other runners and I don’t like to be passed! One man dared to pass me and I struggled to keep up with him for 3/4 round of the gardens before sprinting past him in last 10 yards (and then exiting out of the gates).

Returned to Luxembourg Gardens with the girls when they woke up. Tilly and Nancy went on the ponies. We then went to the puppet theatre and T&N went on the adventure playground. See Tilly’s blog for more detail.

Then went to see my friend Franck. I hadn’t seen him for almost 10 years, though we did host his daughter for a couple of weeks a few years ago. He showed us around his neighbourhood, Montmartre. This was mostly packed with tourists. The Sacre Coeur looks much better from the outside than on the inside. I think I was with a 1000 people traipsing around it thinking “why did I walk up all those steps for this?”. Liked the quiet bits of Montmartre, more bohemian than where we are (join of 6th and 7th arrondissement). Franck was as amusing as ever, and it didn’t seem as if we hadn’t seen each other for such a long time.

Went to several shops this evening to buy for this evening’s meal. I’ve never ordered 1 carrot, 3 mushrooms, 2 carrots and 2 potatoes before. Cooked 3 different meals for different tastes.

    Looks as if you had a better day than the girls!

    We discovered that Puttenham is the place for puds!
