What did I do?
Strolled in the sunshine by the Seine and through the Tuileries - and just soaked up the atmosphere.
Ate turbot and hot chocolate souffle at Michelin-starred restaurant, Marius et Janette - which had been recommended by Arthur Pincher, of Arbroath.As a consequence, I arrived home feeling thoroughly inspired (and glad that Henry-the-trainer couldn't see the profiteroles which we all snarfed down!).
Met the talented sculptor Jean GARLEITA for a drink in a rose-tinted bar just off the Champs Elysees.
And tackled this awkward-looking crustacean at Terminus Nord - a classic French brasserie which is almost an institution. It's situated right opposite the Gare du Nord and serves some of the most delicious food I've ever tasted. It's a station cafe - but not as we know it!
How about you.....what has inspired you most over the last few days?
