Long overdue

I've finally got round to sorting out my photos from Paris. Here are a quick few!

Here I am up the hill of Sacre Coeur with Paris behind me:

Here we are enjoying a (very expensive!) beer in Montmartre:

The Eiffel Tower...obviously...

A pretty street..


What a great trip! And yes, I tried a snail. They look absolutely disgusting (like a shrivelled up piece of black bogey) but they actually taste lovely. Sort of like a prawn but not fishy? If that makes sense.

Otherwise, I haven't got much to report. My new manager at work is still driving me batty with her ignorance and rudeness but I'm trying my hardest to ignore it.

I'm busy planning mine, my great aunt and my mum's birthdays which are all in April and I'm really looking forward to celebrating. I'm 25, my mum's 57 and my great aunt's 86! Phew!!

RA-wise, I'm feeling good. Touch wood, I feel much better than I did Oct-Dec. Every few days I still can feel a bit of inflammation in a few joints on my right hand and occasionally in my right foot but it's not causing many issues and if it stays at this level all summer I'll be a very happy Squirrel. It's been over 3 months now since my finger injection so I'm a bit worried it'll wear off soon but trying not to think about it too much. I don't see the doctor until the end of May but I do have to go for a routine xray in a few weeks to check if there's been any change since last year.

So..that's it! Hope you're all enjoying the longer brighter days. :)


  1. I love the photos. I would love a trip like this.

    Don't worry about the finger, just enjoy the good days while they are here.

  2. (smiling) Love your hair, Squirrel! And what very nice photos! I would so love to visit Paris someday (well, London, too,and Dublin, and Rome, and and and...) Glad you had such a good time and that your rheuma is being kind-ish to you at the moment. I hope it stays that way, and I second Cathy: Don't worry about that finger. Enjoy life day by day. :)

  3. So glad you are doing good. I agree with Cathy, don't worry about the finger. The photos from your trip are great, makes me jealous.

  4. Looks like such fun – escargots and all!! Wish I were as close to the continent as you! :(


  5. I think this is the first time I've seen a picture of you, very cute!! :D

    I actually really like escargots, too :) The idea seems kind of gross, but they are yummy!

    Jenn just posted some travelling pics too, so now I am super jealous! My trip to France was tooooo long ago, and I think I would appreciate it more now.


  6. Hey Squirrel,
    Jenn is having some computer troubles and can't comment on some of our blogs so has asked me to post a comment to you from her :)
    Here goes:

    Lovely photos Squirrel and your hair is amazing!

    I feel the same about snails; look like black bogeys but taste yum, especially soaked with garlic and butter or whatever they were soaked in when I had some last week!

    PS-long time no comment....for some reason I could not comment on blogger blogs, but hopefully I will be able to when I get a new laptop next week!

    email me pretty

    xo, Jenn

  7. Haha, I forgot I hadn't really posted any photos of my face before. Thanks for the hair complements :)
    Pony thanks for posting that for Jenn, how weird I hope she gets her computer sorted!
