Having the laziest Sunday everrrr. I needed it, I've been non stop since I got here so today I stayed at the house and chilled in the garden, napped, drank a lot of tea... and not a lot else! Nothing is open here on Sundays, not even food shops so I can't even buy a donut (I'm on my period OK, major donut cravings right now).
Look how majestic...
Having this cutie follow me around the house every day! I always seem to make such strong connections to dogs haha and this one is such a soppy one! I took him for a walk this week when I felt better and as soon as I picked up his lead he was running around the house and literally jumping in circles! Was one of the funniest things I've seen a dog do!
I had a croissant and a pink macaron yesterday! (Btw, know the difference between macaron and macaroon - they are two very different things!) It was yum. And right now I want a donut with pink icing and sprinkles.
A little bit of chilled shopping! It's so hot so I bought some new shorts from a cute shop, and I checked out an art shop, a Nantes goodies shop (apparently butter biscuits are a local thing here? So is everything made with the sea), and they really love the Irish here! There was this Irish shop and I've seen at least three Irish pubs, one of which does some classic hearty Irish pub food, I will be going there to eat!
Discovering less busy shopping places, I think this is the vintage type quirky road I was trying to find, but not much was open on the Saturday. It is actually mostly quirky bars and oriental shops which I love! Plus a cool gaming bar called Game Over, a shop selling homemade African bits and bobs, like clothes and jewellery, and also tea! Speaking of I found a tea emporium hoping to find some decent English tea, nope none of that, but I was given a tester of the most refreshing cold infusion! I have to return for more!
Finally, finding the cathedral! Isn't it magnificent?! I have to keep using that word 'cos everything here is magnificent! I think you can go inside but I didn't 'cos I was trying to find a shop that sold sunglasses (literally nowhere except high street shops like H&M). I'll go back for more photos because this is just the front, the rest of it is just as grand!
I also had a cracking week at work, but obviously don't have any photos! My French is already improving, everyone at the lab is so lovely and easy going! And I've been left to do lots of lab work myself which I wasn't expecting and I love it! I also love knowing where everything is so I can just get on with things.
Today has been the laziest day, which I've needed! I think next weekend I will go to a museum or to see the mechanical animals! Then the following weekend I am doing something so very fucking exciting! So exciting I had to swear! How has your week been? Please link me to your latest posts, I have a lot to catch up on so am trying to read recent ones first as I don't have time to go so far back yet! Don't worry though, you'll all be getting a rampage of comments at some point ;-) xo
ps, sorry for all the exclamation marks!!!
