Our time in Paris en famille is passing quickly. Clive’s son and family are making the most of their time here. They’ve seen many major sights, experienced much of what Paris has to offer, and visited Disney (Day One) and Versailles.
As for Clive and me, we’re savouring these last precious days before the Aussies return Down Under on Sunday.
Our last full day together will be Saturday, culminating in a Parisian birthday party (5 days early) for a special little girl who’s turning four. On the same evening in the U.S., my cousin’s daughter will be married – one of those times I think many expats can relate to, when I wish we could be multiple places at once.
Saturday night we’ll be sending love and all good wishes to the beautiful bride and groom in Massachusetts. Here in Paris, we’ll celebrate the blessing of the youngest member of the family and the time we’ve had together.
Her grandad will be quite emotional when she and her family depart on Sunday, and I’ll be by his side to wave them good-bye. All being well, we’ll next see them in Australia next March.
Not that Clive and I are tired or anything, after keeping up with the Aussies, but I’m thankful we’ll have another (almost) week in Paris to move at a slightly slower pace, see a few current exhibits I’m very excited about and soak up a little more of this city before we return to our home by the sea in Felixstowe.
I can’t end this post without including the blessed news that this week also marked the successful live kidney transplant for my U.S. stepson. We are eternally grateful for his angel donor and her family and that she and my stepson are both recovering well.
Cheers and thanks for reading. Next week’s letter will be from Paris.
