My girlfriends and I worked out which movies we were going to see for the French Film Festival which is coming to Brisbane in mid March. Goody.
This post is going to be filled with lots of French themed visuals, so if you're not feeling the love just click away now. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Look here's Old Nancy Mitford's street in Paris:
We want to see 3 Hearts (Catherine Deneuve and Charlotte Gainsbourg), the Yves Saint Laurent biopic (that my friend J assures me isn't the same one we saw last year), the doco about French couture houses called Made with Love in France and that French Riviera one (Catherine D again). I also wouldn't mind seeing the Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles, because I read the book and the one called The Ultimate Accessory. So many movies, such little time.
Cue the French Visuals!
Hello St Genevieve
This is an inauthentic cassoulet. It was Delicious!
Aspic. There's something you don't see often these days.
Must make a soufflé. Can't think why I haven't for so long. Maybe because it's been boiling hot and humid for months on end.
Hello St Malo cathedral
And God Bless you Breton Bakers.
This is my friend Heidi's late mother's scarf. Isn't it lovely?
In other exciting news my sister went to sleep with a 4 four old and woke up today with a Big Boy who'd turned 5! 5! Happy Birthday Nephew FF!!! He's got the best birthday surprise in store- I am 100% jealous.
Thank you for everyone who emailed me and left comments about where to find quinces!!!! Hooray! I'd love to chat but I've got to catch the end of Who Do You Think You Are and then watch that doco about the Royal Family and the media on the ABC.
In closing, I'd like to quote my wise 3 year old-
"You get what you get and you don't get upset"
Something in that for all of us really.
