They say on the weather tonight that there is supposed to be snow tomorrow but they said that about today too. it snowed for about 2 seconds - just little white bits of fluff which were wonderful but hardly enough to be called snow. I don't know why I'm so excited about it. Probably because I never get to see it in real life ;)
My mother never ceases to amaze me. Last week she was completely blas� about the single status certificate, I had a great big sook on here about how she didn't tell me that she hadn't received my email about it ... oh I could go on and on. Well it arrived in her mailbox yesterday and this morning she went to the DFAT, got the apostille attached to it and my birth certificate, and put it all in the mail. This is heart attack material. She is the most unorganised person on earth, and she received the certificate and posted it all done all within 24 hours. Oh I love my mum :D I didn't think she'd do it, I thought I would have had to email-nag for another week... but no - she did it! yay! This means I need to get to the Embassy here and get the Certificate de Coutume done. I need to do that next week. oh and the medical checks. eek! so much to be done!!!
I wonder if I can convince sylvain that we can go to the Louvre tomorrow. If not there, perhaps Montparnasse cemetary for a wander... I asked him what he wanted to do this weekend and he said "sleep". hehehe. he's working hard though, I'll give him that! We ordered the engagement ring a week ago tomorrow. This means that it should be done in maybe one week! ooooooh woopsie doo! i can't wait to wear it! *does another happy ring dance*
I went to the patisserie, as usual, today to get our demi-baguette. The little lebanese man in the "alimentation generale" store always talks to me, and this time he was outside the store and started talking to me when i was about 5 metres away (instead of 2 steps, like usual, a fact that means we had far more opportunity to have a longer conversation than usual). He said "�a va?" as usual... I said "ouiiii, �a va bien, et vous?" (being the polite little foreigner that i am). He said "oui �a va �a va" and then said "et ton marie?" and I must have had that stupid i-don't-understand look on my face which I always wear when I'm processing french because he said it again, then quickly said "c'est ton marie?" and I said "oooh il est mon fianc�". And that was the end of that conversation :D I like saying that. "mon fiance". hehehe.
