This week has been a whirlwind, and if you know me, you’ll know I hate whirlwinds. I am calm. I am collected. I am half comatose most of the time, lol, but this week has been a busy one. And of course, I get my edits! My editor is on vacation so I don’t have to hand them in until After the holidays, but it just seemed funny that they arrived precisely this week.
He gave presents after the fête – and I wished I’d gotten a picture of him with his glass of champagne, lol!
Then Sunday was the Horse Fair, and of course I had to take my daughter to Paris to see that. Millions of people. Crowds. No parking. Driving in horrific traffic. My daughter was Thrilled.
I was exhausted. Monday was almost calm – just a lunch with friends, and then Tusday another lunch with another set of friends. Wednesday was the busiest day – five English lessons and then a trip to Paris for a book signing!
A friend of ours wrote a wonderful book about polo, and he asked me to do some illustrations for it, so I did and he took six of them and used them in the book. Here is a picture of me sitting next to him in Paris last night!
Charles Emmanuel de Bourbon-Parme and Moi at a book signing for the book ‘POLO – A Sport to Discover’ (by Charles-Emmanuel de Bourbon Parme). It’s written in French and English – it’s got wonderful photos and art work in it, and some very funny drawings by yours truly.
If you want a copy it’s 29€ plus shipping from France. Just let me know.
Tomorrow I go pick up Alex at the airport at noon! He’s coming home for the holidays – and his brother actually cleaned up their room for him!
