I mentioned that Henri had been crashing for a couple of weeks but haven't posted any shots of him - despite us being in each other's pockets for pretty much the whole time - so here you go. It's his last night before he flies off to Bali for a couple of weeks, as you do. Grr. Marie H in town (as well as François) so the crew met up at Le Comptoir for drinks and food. Back home, we played the bean game (initiated F who is also crashing) and apparently I really do take these things too seriously (in my defence, they were obviously ganging up against me!)
Clelia and my ridiculously cute nephew Boris are in town for a couple of days so met up with them for lunch at St Boniface. Spent part of the afternoon shopping for baby clothes and books, quick tea at mine, walked them to their temporary lodgings and came back to work. Pretty chill Monday.
Kate over for breakfast and 'workday'... stuff related to Imagine expo. Lunch at Le Comptoir (I go too often, need to mix it up a bit) and then some editing, lots to do... I also impulse bought a lens (cheap one - the 50mm, 1,8 - quite plastickey, no gimmicks but all my lenses are zooms and I feel like I need some fixed-wide-aperture- fun). First test shot - Kate.
Ugh - clothes shopping for Claire and Flip wedding next weekend. My least favorite activity. I don't know how long it's been but long enough for my body to look incredibly alien (in a not good way) - apparently I have knee wrinkles, I don't think I knew they existed. Still, reasonably convinced by the 'costume' I've ended up with. Whiled away some time waiting for a yellow car and then coffee with Marie T @ Blomkvist's (clever name for a Swedish café) and dinner with her, Angie, Matthew & Alessandro @ Le Comptoir.
Fred & Anna in town. Fred moved to Miami last year, in search of sun and glitz, both of which he seems to have found. We met for lunch at Le Comptoir and then cruised around town a little. Spent the rest of the day nose to the grind...
one of those days. Cocktails at Le Comptoir for happy hour which made things brighter! Nice place actually - I had never been despite it being very close by - the food is cheap and tasty, service friendly, atmosphere pretty chill. Movie night - 'Adam' - thumbs up.
