Just quickly this morning after a whirlwind trip to Paris…
Reading for the last week has been minimal because (a) much work (b) I normally read a lot on the weekend and this weekend I was in Paris. Am stuttering through The Etymologicon on the Kindle and enjoying it, even if the light jokey tone gets a bit irritating after more than 15 minutes.
Paris was wonderful; work was generous enough to send me there for meetings on the Friday (hello, 05:40 Eurostar…) but then I stayed for the weekend and the family came to join me. We saw Notre Dame, Sainte-Chapelle, the Louvre, the Orangerie, and I think I ate my bodyweight in entrecôte and confit de canard! Oh and our breakfast cafe had a view of Notre Dame (the interesting end, with all the flying buttresses)!
