Slumber Party in Aix

We shared some things while I was away in Aix.
We shared laughs, embarrassing stories, wooly jumpers and, as it turns out, la grippe.

I'm hoping that it's not really and truly la grippe but rather more of a mild ache with allergy symptoms.

I will push it down deep, pretend I'm fine and try to get on with it.
But in a more subdued way; Monday grocery shopping was done online at E.Leclerc Drive that you all know so much about, the laundry is hanging a bit longer on the line between washes, Clementine's walk took the shorter circuit and I'm going to use the afternoon to get started on the first season of The Good Wife.

Thank goodness the kids went back to school today. P-Daddy tried to convince me to let him work from home but I had none of it. I don't want him to get sick. You know what that would mean. See here in case you don't.

As for the night away, we had so much fun gabbing and laughing, sometimes with snorts, that no one really took any photos. Here's one good one that a fellow diner happily snapped.

 And here's one on Delana's sunshiny roof terrace.
Sara took one of us walking to the restaurant SATC style but she's got the flu so it may take awhile to see it.
I do not have the flu. Only allergies with mild aches. I'm sticking to that until I can't anymore.

Off to watch tv. Don't tell anyone.


  1. Get better soon. My son has gone down with aches and pains and feeling sick this afternoon. I've told him NOT to play on the XBox.

    I think I saw on the tele that there's a bit of an epidemic going around and L-R is one of the hot spots.

  2. Oh! Stay well mon amie! Looks like a fabulous get-together!

    Take care of yourself!


  3. How much fun you have had with all your girlfriends. I had read on Sara's blog that she had come down with the flu too! I will keep my fingers crossed for you, Aidan. If worse comes to worse, you can watch the Good Wife. I just caught up on the last episodes last night. Been following the show since season 1. Great TV! -- Oh, and merci for stopping by chez moi today. A bientôt. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  4. Of course it's only allergies! I mean, how could it possibly be the flu? Especially since you were in contact with me and G?? No, no, no, it's allergies for sure x

  5. Feel better! Hopefully it is just a little bug and not the flu! Sounds like you had a wonderful time this weekend though! Enjoy your relaxing afternoon :)

  6. Sorry about that but it doesn't look as if it spoiled your weekend, thankfully! Hope you feel better soon.

  7. Oh no - not la grippe!! Allergies only, fo'shizz.

    Hope you feel better - and I'm so glad you lovely ladies got together for girlie chats and fun times. Miss you!

  8. I am happy to hear you had a good time in Aix with your friends. I hope you only caught a bout of allergies with mild aches rather than something more serious like the flu. Get well soon.

  9. I can only imagine what came out of those mouths...

  10. Hee hee, Blandina, you don't want to know!
    Feel better soon sweetie, it's gotta be allergies. But go heavy on the garlic and oranges just in case.
    Was so great to catch up. x x

  11. Feel better soon. I've just headed over from wishing Sara a speedy recovery! The night away sounds like it was a great one!

  12. Now I know why I've been exhausted since you guys left. I'm down too. Everything hurts. Tonight I have a date with my new, but completely forgotten tele. Get better Aidan. You have "operation spy" on the 15th!
