The outfit is a bit – blah, shall we say? I really wasn’t feeling it, but oh well. The grey skirt is the first one I designed and made so it’s close to my heart.
This morning David and I got up extremely early to go to ‘The Friday Shop’. That’s not really its name, but it has been dubbed that by the local residence because it only ever opens on a Friday. It sells yummy French pastries and is typically well and truly sold out by 9am (today though, probably well before). I really didn’t think we would actually get up, but lo and behold we did (I am actually really very motivated by food you know) and we got there at about 7.15am. There were already about three people there and by the time we had left there were another several people stuffing bags full chocolate croissants, almond croissants and tarts by the dozen.
I must say though, eating that much sugar at that time of the morning wasn’t quite what my body was expecting, and yes I am gluten free but I haven’t cheated in such a long time. I will probably end up feeling a bit on the sick side tonight but it was worth it, and I’m of the opinion that its one of those things you do once in a lifetime, like when I end up going to France for example, I’m not not going to eat their pastries just because I’m gluten free, how many times will I end up going to France for pastries? Probably not as many times as I would want to - so that’s my argument and I’m sticking with it!!
Hope you have a great weekend, mine will be spent doing last minute Christmas shopping, going to the farmers market and spending some time with one of my dearest friends who will be leaving me in a few short days…
Speaking of christmas shopping - Oxfam is waiting for your purchase, as are lots of needy third world families. So, go on, give them a good christmas!!
