I’m half way!

Posted on 20th October 2016 by

It’s week 7 here out of a 12-week term, it’s scary how fast time here is flying by and I’m beginning to panic that I won’t get everything I want to do done before I leave! Cramming my weeks full of school work so that the weekends are free, so I can make the most

Mes excuses, mes amis, for being away yet again and potentially another long post on what I’ve been up to over the last couple of weeks, BUT as I like to say, It’s a great sign there is rarely a dull moment here in Paris. Time is flying by and the weather has finally dropped

Dinner Parties, Eyebrows and Sagunto

Posted on 10th October 2016 by

This week has been quite a busy one, involving various excursions and other lovely days with friends. So on Tuesday, we held our first dinner party at the flat. I use the term ‘we’ very loosely, considering it was really Orla and Sarah who did the cooking. Sarah is staying with us for a while
