Hi everyone, hope you had a happy Halloween (if you celebrate it - sadly it's not really France's thing). Have you emerged from your sugar comas yet?
I also hope that anyone who had to face Superstorm Sandy's wrath is okay and life is getting back to normal.
After several storms and low temperatures, I can't deny it any longer. France is in the grip of autumn.
I have mixed feelings about this change of season. On the one hand it's beautiful, on the other it means we're even closer to leaving. I'm using cheese to get myself through the pain.
I was nominated for the Top 25 European Moms blogger award for 2012, which is a lovely compliment. At the moment I'm languishing at number 43, but if you've got a moment you could click the button below and vote for me. Apparently you can vote every day (if you're really feeling frisky) until 21 November, when the poll closes.
Speaking of polls - good luck USA with your election on Tuesday! The fate of the free world is in your hands, no pressure.
I know it's a really important event, but can I be honest and say I'll be glad when it's over? Is America done with hearing about it too?
Although the election lead up did produce this Bad Lip Reading video (no political statement being made here - I just think it's hilarious):
And on that note, thanks for dropping by and I hope you're having a great weekend!
