My visit to the Radical Eye photo exhibition at Tate Modern

Agghhh, this week was challenging. I came down with flu at the weekend. I assumed it was just a bad cold and did not alter my plans last Saturday but then after returning from a nice Fashion exhibition at Somerset House I started shaking like a leaf and the fever started kicking in….Sunday was spent in bed and I was on paracetamol non stop to cope with the first half of my week.  Anyway I am thankfully on the mend now!

London architecture

 

One of the things that excite me most by living in such a cool and vibrant city as London is the amount of cultural opportunities around. As a keen photographer I am always on the look for inspiration  from all sorts of arts Continue reading

How I deal with the cold weather/Comment je gère la présence du froid

Winter day at Bushy Park

Does anyone else feel like January has been dragging on forever – the post Christmas months are a bit tough: it’s cold, it’s muddy, the days are short…..We have had a few freezing weeks since Christmas – even though this week the weather is turning mild again but I am pretty sure it will get cold again. I am not very good at dealing with the cold Continue reading

Ile de Ré highlights/Mes moments coups de coeur à l’Ile de Ré

🇬🇧 Our time on Ile de Re was just great – apart from a very poorly toddler stricken by a nasty case of bronchiolitis (thank goodness, there are excellent doctors in France!)

The highlights of our holiday included (get ready for tons of photos!:)

🇫🇷 Notre séjour a l’Ile de Ré fut superbe – mis a part le fait que notre petite dernière fut terriblement malade sous le coup d’une bronchiolite carabinée (heureusement qu’il y a de bons médecins en France!).

Si je vous résume les temps forts de notre séjour on y trouve (préparez-vous a une déferlante de photos!):

The photos below were taken on the same evening!

A somptuous butternut squash and goat cheese pasta/Un plat de pates rafiné a la courge butternut et au fromage de chèvre

🇬🇧 I have tried and tested a wonderful, wonderful pasta recipe for you and it would be selfish not to share it with you. It’s the pumpkin, butternut squash season and it’s time to make the most of those delightful veg to create a beautiful pasta dish. All right, the time given on the recipe says 20mn, I would say it’s probably a bit longer, probably more around 30mn but it’s worth it if you are cooking it for a lovely friend, partner, husband. It’s definitely not the kind of dish I would cook just for the kids, they just would not appreciate the work that goes behind let alone the wonderful flavours.

A quick healthy diner/Un petit diner rapide et équilibré!

🇬🇧 There is one thing (among others;-) I will never give up trying: for my kids to eat veg. This applies to l’Homme and I of course. In France where I am from food is such a big part of our culture and it’s a country which has such a variety of climates that it is easy to find fresh fruits and veg.

But sometimes when the  fresh food is running low in the fridge and the grocery shop is only due the following day it is always good to have a couple of tins of sweetcorn in the pantry!
