    No! Not more waiting! But yes, chenille is a very pretty word. I loved that book as a kid…ah the memories 🙂

    Lovely. And I am thoroughly enjoying this “waking up to a new blog post to read while I eat my breakfast” thing you’ve got happening. Keep it up 😉
    (and would you believe it? It’s Tuesday and I’m not breakfasting at Silo! Ha! See?! Take that, world! I’m not as weirdly predictable, obsessive, and habitual as everyone seems to think! HA! HAHAHAHA! HA!… ha.)

    Forget about the archivist mother, what about proof-reading mother? You’re going to “check go” your online scrabble games? Not only does that not make sense but you didn’t “check go” ALL the games! If you mother were in her grave she’d be turning over double time.

    Lovely photos and yes, you’re right – some of the statues ‘coverings’ were really, um, kind of more revealing than what they were hiding… if that makes any sense.

    LOL very convenient placement indeed! *sigh* I love the Ile St Louis! And yes I don’t like this no photos thing that they have at a lot of places.

    Those pictures remind me of how I’d love to be back there!

    And yes! I think you should start your own trail mix company with chocolate! 🙂

    Vaala: And now I’m about to post a chocolate post… more waiting! 😛 I think I might do a favourite picture book post sometime…

    L-Izzle: There’ll be another for you at breakfast tomorrow! Because this blog is all about you…. yep. And I think being obsessively habitual in regards to Silo is something you should work hard to maintain 🙂

    Whisperinggums: *sticks out tongue*

    Kath: Oh, that makes perfect sense. Almost TOO much perfect sense… 😀

    Lorraine: Any island with a plethora of Berthillon-selling spots is pretty much guaranteed to be loved by you and me, I think! 🙂 Do you ever get told you can’t take photos in Sydney?

    Simply Life: Me too! A peanut butter chocolate trail mix company, I think!

    Apart from the cute word for caterpillar, I’d say whoever translated that title did a lame job. “The Caterpillar who makes holes?” Please.

    Please do!! A favourite picture book post would be awesome. My favourite memory of childhood was the stories I was read (by my Dad who could even make Winnie the Pooh so terrifying that I’d scream and hide under the covers!)

    PS you are mean to keep us waiting! He owns a plane for goodness sake!!!

    Camille: Is that what it translates as? How awful! Even I can remember that being hungry in French is something like J’ai hambre… wait, is that right, or did I just make a fool of myself?

    Vaala: Yay, now I think I really will do such a post! (Once I’m back home where the books are, of course.) And I have such lovely memories of being read to as well. It’s a wonderful thing for a parent to do, I think. (Wait… what… I’m sorry… he has a plane?! :P)

    French: J’ai faim.
    Spanish: Tengo hambre.

    Think of it as an opportunity to learn. 😀

  13. Hannah

    Camille: And that, my friend, is precisely why I stopped taking Spanish and French at the same time in Year 11.

    Oh I love the french very hungry caterpillar. I read a lot of kids books, and hadn’t thought of trawling for french versions. Will give me another thing to do in France. Like I don’t have more than enough to do for just a mere two weeks.

  15. Hannah

    Louise: I guess you’ll just have to give something up – like sleeping, maybe? I actually really wanted to find a “classic” French children’s book, but sadly didn’t think of this in advance and so had no idea what classic French children’s books were. Thus ending up with Le Petit Prince, which I’m not at all sad about, mind you 🙂

    Mmm, foreign veg supermarket food…
    Ah yes, that room in the Louvre is where they keep the crown jewels of France…all three of them :] They were…well, cute…

    Amber: You’re fabulous, thanks 🙂 I wish I could get that veg food here in Aus – our tofu-products selection is far too meagre.
