Bon Noël!

To all if you, the ones who take the time to read my blog, send me messages of support and feedback, along with endearing lines of thanks and gratitude- from me to you, thank you.

I hope you’re preparing yourselves for a big feast with family and friends at the end of this week, or maybe you’re saving up for New Year’s Eve – perhaps both.

Wherever the next few weeks take you, please don’t be good, have fun, enjoy some time away from the office, the gym, the library or the school gate (or all). Simply put, I hope you’re taking some time away from whatever it is that you do that forms the majority of the moments that make up the calendar year. This one has flown for me, and almost a year ago I sat in the window of the Parisian loft and quite simply, started typing because a few of you said I should. I’ve always been fairly obedient and listening to that advice is one of the greatest things I’ve ever done.

The past couple of weeks have been a complete whirlwind of study and tying up loose ends but the minute I get onto that plane tomorrow, the wheels will be in motion for a reflective piece that I’ve been stringing together on my morning walk to school each day this week. Watch this space!

This is a simple message from me to you to say thank you and Happy Christmas, as my suitcase eyes me off, spewing summer dresses out each corner and I really need to mop the bathroom floor. If there is one thing I’m excellent at, it’s procrastination.

All my love and thanks from my most favourite place in the world (apart from home, India, Turkey, Italy and others). On that note, I might have to eat a plate of oysters for dinner…

  7. Dearest Andrea,

    I just loved receiving this wonderful email the night before I left Paris and since I arrived home it’s been rather berserk but such fun and now I’m playing catch ups. I hope you had the best Christmas with all your gorgeous grandchildren and family – I spoke to Charlotte this morning and she sounds so happy. I can’t wait to see her in a couple of weeks. All my love to you for a wonderful 2018 and thank you for all of your supportive words- it goes both ways, I absolutely look to you for inspiration and admire all that you’ve ever done. Big kisses and lots of love, Pin
