I also knitted her something else, but Shh! it's a secret.
We had a cool week-end, went to a BBQ, chatted about NZ with a german gal(!), then met with some cousins on sunday. Prune had a great time playing with a toy kitchen(for a change, she was allowed to get all the pots and pans out !!)but she's still a bit young to play with the other kids. She loved swimming with her daddy though!
And yeah, I am french indeed. And like most french people, I'd say seeing Paris and seeing France are 2 different things. Parisians can be very haughty and look down upon the rest of the country (kind of "oh, so you also have TV and cell phones down there?" attitude..). Plus most of the negative comments on french people we heard abroad(like being rude, not nice ect..) came from people who had visited only Paris.
But don't get me wrong, I also like Paris as a city. Love the Art museums and the athmosphere along the Seine ect...I just don't like parisians.
Sorry about this whole rant, but I'm always a bit annoyed when people say "Oh, I love France, I want to go to Paris" because there's SO much more to see.
... I hope you get an occasion to see other beautiful areas of France too (but maybe you did and I'm making a fool of myself !)
Hope I didn't sound too agressive, it really wasn't about you, but this is a subject we french people are probably pretty touchy about...(is that how I should say it?)
