Valentines Dinner

On the Sunday, Della phoned me early afternoon. She wanted to discuss a business trip/holiday she is going on to Paris for five days next week and if I still wanted to go with her. I said, yes, of course, anything to get away from the miserable weather of London and be able to spend some uninterrupted time with her.

Well, it is mostly a business trip I gathered, and she is driving over as she has to take various samples etc with her for her company. I think she is also going to do an initial consultation for a Paris apartment and will be staying in a nearby hotel and visiting some local suppliers, taking measurements, discussing initial designs with the owner’s agent, and so on.

She reminded me, that although primarily an arranged business trip, there would still be plenty of time for sightseeing and evenings out around work commitments which should only take up 3 days or so, all in. She also said she wanted to have a look around the antique stalls near the Louvre, and wanted to revisit the museum while she was there.
Its quite a long time since I visited Paris, but that said, we have agreed to go together, and I am quite looking forward to it. Well, its only five days, and there’s nothing that pressing that can’t wait for that long!

So in all, quite an eventful weekend. And I’ve still got a few days to catch up on anything slightly urgent.

For the moment

  1. ooh la la, Paris in the Spring eh, sounds like fun. Cheers for the comic book by the way, everyone at work thinks it’s hilarious. A few of the blokes want signed copies of their own so I’ll grab them when I’m next in London. I’ll give you a buzz in the next couple days anyhow J

  2. Yes, and for 5 whole days with an hotel! And a car! Got so much to do before I go.
    Glad you liked The Comic. It might be a few years old (2007) but it’ll never really be out of date with all his antics. There’ll be a new one out in April (the latest May) and from what I’ve seen, its equally funny.
    Anyway speak in a couple of days,
    David
