First Rely - France

(Click to enlarge)

I wrote to all members (bar one) of the G20, asking for climate change to be on the agenda.

This is the first reply (Babelfish rough translation):

The President of the French Republic has received mail that you have wanted to send him and told me the care to respond to you. 
Be sure that he has been aware of your expectations for the next G20 Summit which will be held on 15 and 16 November next in your country in Brisbane. 
Please accept, Sir, the assurance of my highest consideration.

Hannelie Dargie comes to dinner...




Had the pleasure of meeting up with one of my long time blogging friends.

The phone decided not to use its flash, I think the soft focus flatters me.

Inspiring



Sainte Chapelle, Paris.
Absolutely stunning.


I wonder if I could replicate it.  The bathroom, perhaps.

Curiously, the Emirates end of the plane landed 10min before the Qantas end.



With Aunty Romilla.


Pose for the cameras.

Easter Project


Easter Saturday Dinner



Twice baked (risen?) cheese soufflé.
Really light and yummy.  Gruyere cheese.


Roast Lamb.
Sliced in rings to the bone, stuffed the cuts and tied.

Plus bread & butter puddings, made with Hot X Buns.

Just because I'm an atheist, it doesn't mean I shouldn't eat nice things at Easter.
