Last week we went up to Angouleme looking for Converse. DS-D had promised Alex a pair as part of her Christmas and birthday presents. She's been looking for ages in the UK, but none of them have been the right colour. We decided to start looking over here - a bit more expensive but at least we knew they would fit AND, most importantly, they were the right ones. Angouleme did not have the right ones - well they did, but not in her size. I've never walked round a town so many times looking for shoe shops "just in case". However, I did come across these.

Turned round and opposite was this
And then, would you believe, this!
I'm serious - this is for real! Can you imagine entertaining your friends, sitting on this balcony having an aperitif or digestif and every passer-by watching you!
Got a lot of things to do between now and Monday next when I am off on my jaunt. I hope to upload towards the end of this week the latest progess on Crumbs from my Table, which, even if I say so myself, is looking good after a bit of re-arranging.
