I'm writing this entry now at 10:30pm because if I don't I never will!! We have been so busy, I don't think we've stopped from the beginning of February, or even before that!! February half term was so busy! It was more crazy than Christmas. I felt like a dish washing machine! Leo and I stayed in the entire week to help Gill cook and I became an expert at baking cakes! I made caramelised ...
... learned how to stop! I had
to fall any time that I wanted to stop, and once I stopped because I

... My favourite food of the week was guinea fowl with stuffing under the skin and potato dauphinoise, Leo has even been drinking wine!
On Wednesday we visited Grenoble, a really cool city that seems quite old fashioned yet at the same time modern! It reminds me a bit of London but the streets are bigger! The architecture was really fascinating and grand. We also had the most delicious French cake! I was scared ...
