Today the weather is cold & wet so we have chosen to remain housebound rather than head out in the rain. Roger & I have been reading & eating this:And Ryder & Willow are doing this:Ahhh, simple pleasures...
Later in the afternoon our fantastic babysitter Pénélope was back so that Rog & I could head out for a few hours. We strolled down rue Saint-Honré to Hotel Costes for a quick drink. The decor here is pretty lush (as are the drink prices) & it was nice way to warm up. From there we headed to L'atelier de Joel Robuchon for dinner. After reading that you couldn't book we arrived nice & early to discover that you can book & the restaurant was already very busy.
Luckily we got a nice, cosy spot by the window-parfait! Dinner was fantastic-start to finish & I loved that you could order wine (grand cru) by the glass, which the waiter poured from a magnum. Roger & I had a really great night here & scooted home to find Willow giggling in Pénélope's arms & Ryder happily dancing round the loungeroom!
Not long 'til we will be back on a plane & off to Dubai, at least the weather there is nice & warm!
