Today is a sad and cloudy day and I would rather stay at home than leave my couch. We got invited to my husband’s parents new place for lunch and unfortunately I will have to leave my house at some point. Their flat is not so far from ours and this 15 minutes walk should warm me up. They moved last week-end and they wanted to show to Adrien their new appartement. With no more children at home, they were feeling like finding a cosy appartement not too big. So it is not too complicated to maintain the house.
They got the perfect place: 3.5 rooms, big kitchen, 3 balconies … They also have an extra room downstairs next to their cellar that Adrien’s mother transformed in an artist’s workshop. They look really happy and I can understand why. They have a little view on Geneva lake as well.
We just came back at home now. After this delicious meal and this nice walk, I feel so refreshed and like baking some Madeleine. I am sure that your children will love these soft Madeleine. They kind of look like littles boats, don’t you think? However not sure they float on water…
