Five rules for men to follow for a happy life

{image from here}

A very dear friend (merci beaucoup Graham) sent this to me this morning and I thought that it was worth sharing....

Five rules for men to follow for a happy life:

1. It's important to have a woman, who helps at home, who cooks from time to time, cleans up and has a job

2. It's important to have a woman, who can make you laugh.

3. It's important to have a woman, who you can trust and who doesn't lie to you.

4. It's important to have a woman, who is good in bed and who likes to be with you..

5. It's very, very important that these four women do not know each other.

  1. Just picked myself up off th floor from laughter!! I have heard that one before - but it's always a goodie!
    Well done for the Monday giggle ;-)

  2. Well, I read the version for the women before but this is new..but I am not showing it to my husband :))

  3. I really laughed by reading this! So funny!!

  4. Ha Ha !! :-) - this did make me giggle...!!

  5. What a fabulous post to start off the week. Very funny, Leeann. XXXX

  6. Loved it! Thanks for the laugh. I think everyone has heard by now that Tiger is changing his name to Cheetah. :)

  7. You are bad! :) Thanks, I needed that!

  8. Oh my . . . I found my self nodding along as I was reading this, thinking this is pretty sage advice . . . but you needed an alert on this one at the end though, my coffee nearly sprayed all over my computer! That was a good one!! --Lili

  9. I have never made a comment on your beautiful blog but this one I can't pass.

  10. Taking a moment to say how adorable I think your blog title background is! Cute blog!

  11. I hear women laughing and men questioning 'what's so funny?' Love it love it! A woman needs one she is attracted to, provides assistance carrying precious or heavy items, looks wonderful and is beautiful to touch.....that would be her handbag!
    loved your blog - had a look at a blog re paris in August 2009 - fabulous information for travellers. my husband (no not a handbag - still just as gorgeous though) , children (9 and 6 yrs) and I are travelling to Paris and Provence in september 2010 and can't wait to visit your wonderful city. Any further advice would be greatly appreciated

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…

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.

Last weekend we bought a lot of wine cases as we thought that they would make good storage, as shown in the photo above.

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…
