Hi Rosemarie, like your blog, john w
Hi John glad you like it! But you’re supposed to call me Fraussie!
Hi Fraussie. Just enjoyed an hour reading your latest blogs. Haven’t been on since well before xmas. Loved the TomTom experience. BP’s father gets very agitated with the fact that the instructions are always a few seconds too late – normally we’ve just overshot the street when she so sweetly requests ‘make a right hand turn at the intersection’ . Needless to say I always check the now ‘out of date’ (as we don’t need an up to date version because we have a tomtom) street directory just so I know exactly where we are heading before we set off. It helps with the ‘frustration’ which is sure to occur with every new adventure. As for the washing machine, my sisters and I used to fight over who was going to turn the wringer (or press the button I should say. From memory it was both manual and electric.) I would have been all of 4 as by the time I was six we had really gone up market and invested in a twin tub! How sad is that – although it was fun watching the clothes go round and round and get stuck in the wringer – it must have taken mum a whole lot longer to get the washing done with our help than without. She had far more patience than I! Also a sign of the times I think.
Hi Katherine. I’d forgotten about the twin tub. We must have had one along the way too. I remember the copper and the blue bags but we were kept well out the way.
I can see that the Tom Tom poses problems everywhere! I feel reassured.
Hi Fraussie, I am having a wonderful time reading all of your blogs. They lead to such wonderful places. I can’t believe how much travel you have done, thank you so much for sharing. Lyn
I adore travelling and I love sharing my experiences. So glad you enjoy them.
Hi Fraussie, we will arrive in Paris 16/17 March next year, will it be early spring or still very cold? I am really keen to see Giverny. I am so looking forward to the galleries, everyone tells me that their favourite is Musee d’Orsay. Lyn
Hi Lyn, this year, March was the most amazing month and quite warm, then it got cold in April and May and is only just beginning to warm up again at the end of June! This is atypical however. March is usually cold with a lot of “giboulées” which means that the sun comes out, then quite suddenly, it starts raining and often hailing. After that the sun comes out again. Usually, we’re still wearing our winter coats and hats and gloves in mid March, I’m afraid.
Giverny doesn’t open until 1st April, so I hope you’re still in Paris. Yes, most people prefer the Orsay Museum. You should also go to the Marmottan which has many of Monet’s paintings and the Orangerie which has two oval rooms with his water-lilies. There is also an impressionist museum at Giverny (it is now an offshoot of the Orsay but used to be the American Impressionist Museum).
You’ll definitely enjoy them all!
I’ve just arrived back home after attending St. Margaret Mary’s College 50th Anniversary celebrations. I was told about your blog by Lyn Chase. When I’ve recovered from the weekend, I intend to get stuck into reading every detail of your blog.
Hi, I would have loved to be there! It’s so nice of Lyn to recommend my blog. I hope you enjoy it!
