Tough life in Paris

Too much to do and not enough time to blog....

Eventhough my husband wonders what I do all day, I insist that my day does not contain enough hours. Yes, I "do" lunch from time to time but it is certainly not the norm. I prefer panting around Paris discovering branché spots, trendy areas or eclectic markets.

Here is an insight to my past week in Paris:
- Monday: Shopping tour with mum at Galeries Lafayettes and Printemps
- Tuesday: Visit to Musée Marmottan and the Musée d'Orsay for a good dose of Impressionism
- Wednesday: accompanied the kids on a field trip to the Planetarium AND
- attended a Ladurée Christmas apero with hubby at the Intercontinental Grand Hotel
- Thursday: off to the Rodin museum with Mona's Tours
- Friday: shopping at the Swedish Christmas bazaar with a friend
- Saturday: touring the Marais with a visiting friend from Switzerland
- Sunday: Christmas market stroll followed by a Christmas cocktail chez Christian Dior.

Ahh, quelle est belle, Paris!

It goes without saying that I squeezed in a manicure, a pedicure and a hairdresser's appointment since I need to look the part. I can't miss my daily excercise to burn off all the chocolate, macaroons and other Christmas goodies I have been munching out on. Drop-off and pick-up of kids needs to be done everyday and they have to be chauffeured to their respective activities. And while waiting for hubby to return from work, I whip up some muffins for the school's backsale event.

So forgive me if I'm a bit slow on my blogging lately.....

       ... all I can say is that life in Paris is extremly tough ... as usual!!!!!
