Signed a très fatigué moi x


  1. Ha Ha ... love the photograph! Sorry you need another weekend to recover from the last one.. hope you have a good week....! x

  2. Love this post!
    That's how I feel whenever we come back from a vacation... I feel like I need another one to relax from the previous one...

    Repose-toi bien.


  3. I know the feeling, I just happened upon your blog and am completely in love. Merci pour être super ;)

  4. I feel your pain! By the way, I have already asked the girls in the office to make sure that, if I faint in the office, they make sure my skirt is not up around my waist. So, I'm pretty sure I'd look just like this picture.

  5. I understand completely. :) (Perfect image - still full of so much beauty and glamour.)

  6. I almost fell off my chair laughing with the photo! I can not picture you on the floor! That's exactly how I feel at the end of the day after I put my kids in bed! ha ha ha....
    Your are so lovely!

  7. HaHa ! funny .. very funny and so familiar.. at least familiar feeling.
    Love that dress.

  8. Hi, I had a lovely weekend in the Puy-de-Dome. Stunning scenery, went up a mountain, did a couple of vide greniers, ate out and went to an Antique Folk Art Fair.
    Love the dress too...
    Take care. Nickyx

  9. Ahaha, that is funny! No, I did lots of that in less fashionable clothing this weekend.

  10. Lovely photo. I feel a bit like that today! I need another holiday to recover from my last holiday - arrived back in London at 2.30am last night to pouring rain and a taxi queue. Groan.

  11. That is one cool photo.
    If I looked that good I'd be taking naps in public all the time.
    Hope you get some catch-up time for yourself.

  12. Interesting and lovely image!

  13. Tell me about it! If only you could press pause on the rest of the world and spend a couple of days in bed catching up on sleep.

  14. I love your blog and I love that photo!! It made me chuckle to myself. There's nothing like flopping on the floor in a fabulous dress for some real me time, is there?! I might try it later!!

  15. I smile everytime I see this picture. Thanks for making me smile. Heidi

  16. What a great picture! That's how I feel after a hard days work :)


  17. Haha. Great post.

    I thought I would drop by and say hi (or should I say salut) and thank you for your comment on my blog. I love the little church too. Was laying in bed scheming last night thinking of room layout, bathroom fittings, kitchens etc etc.

    Lovely blog you have here.

French food Friday...Honey Lavender Icecream

I first tried this in Provence and loved the combination of the lavender and the honey.

For those of you that have seen the movie it's complicated you will recall that Merryl Streep made it for Steve Martin and it really looked great.

By using honey as opposed to sugar you end up with icecream that is deliciously creamy and the smoothest ice cream you've ever tasted.

Be warned, though - there is a caveat...this ice cream will not freeze as well as homemade ice cream usually does. For those of you who like your ice cream hard freeze the ice cream overnight to make it scoopable, instead of the standard two to three hours after churning


1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup dried lavender
4 egg yolks
2 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream


1. Bring the milk, cream, honey, and lavender to a gentle boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

2. Remove from the heat and let steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and let cool a bit.

3.In a separate medium bowl, beat the egg yolks, then gradually add som…

a good idea..

Bonjour from a sunny but chilly SW France,

Hope that you had a nice weekend. We spent yesterday afternoon at a furniture auction but I will tell you more about that later in the week.

I particularly liked the idea of making a set of drawers with them or perhaps even a serving tray like this.

We have quite a few boxes and wine box ends so any ideas that you have would be gratefully received...
Mille mercis et bonne semaine a tous.....

French Food Friday.....

This week we are taking a break from the skinny theme, and indulging in some healthy pears with some also very healthy chocolate....

About Poires Belle Hélène

This classic French recipe were invented Paris in the 19th century and were named after an opera by Offenbach. What a romantic introduction for this French dessert par excellence, a true classic, found in at least half of the restaurants of the Hexagone. It only takes a few minutes to assemble this dish if you use ready-made ingredients; it is actually not much longer to prepare half of them from scratch (the poached pears and the melted chocolate). You can even make crème Chantilly and toasted flaked almonds for a deluxe version on very special occasions.

About Poires William liqueur

A pear flavoured liqueur. Liqueur is a class of spirit that is usually sweet and often served after dinner. It is produced by either mixing or redistilling spirits with natural ingredients such as fruits, plants, flowers, or chocolate. Sugar must be at…
