Blue Door


Bonjour mes amis! Still in Paris and currently saturating my Instagram feed at @thehouseofam with our adventures … and losing Instagram followers by the truckload every time I post! Go figure.

Will hopefully do a Paris summary post at the end of the week. How do you summarise a week in Paris? How? Especially battling the Blogsy photo uploader! Grrrr!

It's Christmas Eve today. 3.53am. I have been up for an hour. Don't mind the jet lag too much. I get some peaceful solitude!

We're off wandering again today. We start out with a plan and never complete it as we get distracted by 'the magic on every corner' as my little one says!

Back tomorrow. I want to share our French Father Christmas photo with you!

A-M xx

    I am really enjoying it, as I said over on IG. I feel a little bit like I am there. Have an amazing chunk of cheese and a bottle of champers for us all back here in Aus!

      You would have been disappointed at what we ate for Christmas! We were in wandering mode and ate on the run all day! We met up with new friends and nibbled on baguettes in playgrounds while the kids played and we discussed US foreign policy and Australian politics! Hope you had a beautiful day. Xxxx

    Looks like you’re having a blast! I’m not on Instagram much these days so unfortunately I am missing it all! I am hanging to do Paris myself, it’s on the bucket list :) Everyone asks me why bother – it’s dirty and horrible apparently! I think they are missing the romance of it all! :/ I can’t wait to go quite frankly! Enjoy! Can’t wait to see more of your adventures! xx

      We had a lovely day. We had a leisurely cafe brunch, then caught up with a lovely family from Abu Dhabi we met over here, played in the park, did some sightseeing and had a nice meal all together. A very special day. Xxx

      Surprisingly, on fine days, the tourist queues are huge, even at this time of year. So glad we ventured out on rainy days when no one was around! We’ve had a great mix of weather, enabling us to see everything we wanted to. Thanks for following! Xx

    Your photos are beautiful. I think the rain weather is your friend, the light is magical. The city is sure dressed up.
