Ça fait longtemps

It has been a while since I have posted on here. Holidays in France, a camera full of photos and a lot of rain later and it is time to begin again.

Firstly, I turned twenty six in the Manuel’s beautiful home in France. Annie was painting the house for her new Annie Sloan book, so I am unable to share any images yet – but bathtubs in bedrooms, foxgloves in vases and large open fires made it feel like sleeping in World of Interiors – only better.

This time, Hugo and I managed to return with:

–   Boxes of Pont-l’eveque

–   (A few) two euro bottles of wine

–   Jars of Petit Pois

–   Petit Marseillais Soap

…and papier mache letters spelling JURNAUX (anagrams welcome)

Chad Valley Sold Out in Ikea

Coming from a fine interior heritage (his mum is Annie of Annie Sloan Interiors) and besides the obligatory student sofa in Bristol, this was Hugo’s first real encounter with Ikea.

In need for miscellaneous kitchen utensils for our new home, I managed to persuade him that this was something of a ‘coming of age’ experience and one that came served with masses of swedish meatballs. Anyone who knows Hugo well will understand that the meatball part of this was a good sell.

2 hours later we both left with a cheese grater, a stack of candles, two kitchen chairs from the bargain bin and a slight feeling of regret.

The meatballs however, were excellent…
