The Eurotunnel is foiled!

Very chirpy right now as I’ve found out my mum is coming to visit this weekend after all! 

Yesterday was another down in my current rollercoaster.  I went all the way to the Champs Elysees to get my mobile phone only to find (contrary to what I had been told by them the week before) that I needed my bank card to set up the contract for some reason (which I don’t have yet for some other unknown reason.. yet another annoyance!).  I headed up to Jills to finish tidying up and things there.  When I got home I had an email from mum saying she couldn’t come this weekend because of the whole eurostar fiasco.  So yeah, I was in a major slump.  Emma did come round in the evening though and we had a good natter so that cheered me up a little!

Today was lovely cos I met up with another language assistant here in Paris who I’d spoken to on facebook.  She lives in a really bustly area of the latin quarter, and it was so good to just meet someone who’s about to do the same kinda things as me!

Later today mum and I worked out that she could get across on the ferry actually more cheaply than the eurotunnel anyway and eventually she was pursuaded!  I’m so happy she’s coming so she can see my new apartment! Plus she’s bringing more of my stuff so that’ll help so much in making me feel more settled :)

I’ve also managed to take some pictures of the first apartment I was staying in, and of my new one which I shall put up here now!

Au Revoir! xx
