We went out shopping today and bought a proper Moules Mariniere pot just like they had last time we went to Lille in France!!!
It's one that you cook the moules in and then put the small top on the top, serve at the table, and then you use the small top on the top to put the shells in after you've eaten the mussels!!!
We got the last one on the shelf in the shop and apparently the shops' supplier isn't sending any more ....... so it's just as well we bought the last one in the shop!!!

Every year, the Royal Academy in London has as Summer Exhibition where anyone can submit up to two paintings for juried application to enter. I have decided that in 2015 I'm going to enter one painting (it costs £25 to enter one!!) and have been producing (now five) watercolour paintings since I got back from Paris last May.
1. Morning Storm.
2. Montmartre Church
3. Doorway 1
4. Ile de Cite
5. Doorway 2
I am now opening the above paintings to a vote - the one that gets the most "likes" will be the one I enter!!!
Bear in mind though, that in 2013, 10,000 people entered and 1,000 got included in the exhibition, and in 2014, 12,000 people applied and 600 got chosen!! The odds are SMALL!!!!

These are images from a Paris Art Journal that I started back in 2012, using all the postcards, ATCs, metro tickets, postage stamps and other detritus I'd collected over the years. The pictures got accidentally deleted off the blog but I've managed to re-find the following off Google, yippee!!
