MrD was away on a business trip to Paris!!
Well, that's simply not on. No one goes to Paris to work but to experience some joie de vivre especially now that the weather has turn unusually warmer for this time of the year.
But, never mind, as usual he tried to console us by bringing back some gifts from there. Thanks MrD, though we would much prefer to be there with you walking along the Champs-Élysées.
