While we’re getting ready for a festive month, in some cities the first snowfall has already been celebrated, and morning coffee is being taken more and more often under the covers, even though I just discovered a pretty café in my neighbourhood.

Here in Paris the days are fading rapidly, but we are enjoying some pretty romantic sunsets while walking longing La Seine.

Avenue Montaigne already sparkles in gold, while the Champs Elysées is in red. Shop Windows are filled with fairy lights and garlands.

But now it’s not so surprising at all.

In January 2021, 18 months after a sticky divorce, I bought a house. I bought it partly because I could – my ex-wife and I had got lucky on the property ladder and walked away with enough money for a deposit each. But also, I bought it because I was desperate. With shared custody of our two-year-old daughter, I needed a place where she could be happy and where I could get back on my feet.

Holiday Inspiration: A Black Christmas

WHEN YOU think about holiday decorating, the colour black doesn’t normally come to mind. Green and red; and of course, white, are the more obvious choices, for black seems a bit severe and lacking their festive quality at first glance. However, when paired with some gold or greenery …

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links
