The Arc De Triomphe is situated in the middle of what is claimed to be the largest roundabout in Europe. It has 12 lanes of traffic and the rule seems to be go when you want to and just watch what everyone is doing.
Next time I want to actually go into the centre and see the arch up close.
Paper by Paperhouse Papers. Sandylion sticker and chipboard.
So finally I am back to adding to my blog with the holiday LOs.
It was an amazing thing to walk right through the centre of the Eiffel Tower and gaze up at it. I took so many photos (as of everything else lol)
Paper is from Paperhouse Papers, Papermania flower and the tiny Eiffel Tower is a Memory Mates button.

Ordered 217 photos today so the next batch of LOs should be happening as soon as they arrive. Wonder how long those photos will keep me occupied. Summer hols are approaching. 6 weeks almost of doing as I please. Woo. There are good things about working in schools.
The girls have been given a new guinea pig by a lady at school. She's a grey and white girly and that's all we know about her but at least we don't have long to wait. She'll be here tomorrow. The hutch is all ready for her and then we have the introductions to start. Should be fun.
The rabbits are still at blue cross but hopefully they will be starting their introductions this week coming. Raindrop had her op and should be going for her final injections this week. It might still be a week or 2 before we get them home with us but it will fly by.

Notre Dame is a fabulous building. There are so many carvings all round the building and other aspects to look at on it. Thinks like the gargoyles
The biggest fun we had on the Paris Metro was on the RER double decker trains. Unfortunately for us we only got to go on the one.
We'd never used the Metro before (other than DH for a couple of stops when at the Paris office for work) and at first it was mind boggling. How the heck did people know where to go to. We found our way out to street level and visited Notre Dame. Then we had to get back on the Metro to go to the Eiffel Tower. Choosing a different station was a good idea as there weren't so many different ways to choose from to go. However it took us a while (and letting a couple of trains go by) to work out how to get the train we needed. With that sorted it was a breeze and Paris became so easy to get round for us. .
Paper from Paperhouse Productions - Paris Map. Die cut Metro embellishment and tickets originals (minus the one for DH which he managed to lose somehow on our return to DLP !)
