3 nights in Paris nothing to do with that Hilton Hotel bir

Mon mari Alex chief booker and provider of my dream break
Mon mielleur ami Siobhan co-booker and secret keeper extraordinaire
Mon bon ami Brian, mari de Siobhan - Brian, Siobhan hubby, all round good guy

On Christmas morning whilst opening my pressies I found a beautifully wrapped parcel which surely had be the one Joaquin Pheonix DVD I didnt have in my possession. I had long ago stopped making subtle hints about wanting this DVD and actually started writing down the title of it, on bits of post-it note beside the words this is all I want for Christmas. Alas, after I managed to get all the wrapping torn off it was a teach yourself French CD Rom. Great! Especially after I had been making noises about learning Italian. Dont get me wrong, I love the French but I find their language near impossible to memorise. Trying to remember what is masculine and feminine, to separate my le from my la, just too much like hard work. Italian much easier. Anyway Im doing my much practiced & wholly insincere, thank you thats lovely face and DH tells me to open it properly. Nestled inside the front cover is a copy of an E-ticket to Paris CDG for us and two of our dearest friends. OH god do I feel bad now. Booked for the 8th February for three nights in a four star hotel by the Champs Elysees. Tears follow elated hysteria which follow tears and DH cant decide if this is a good thing hes done or a very bad thing. You see I love Paris. Love it more than anywhere else, more than WDW (she says in a hushed voice). I have wanted to return to Paris without our three kids for a romantic break for ages and we never seemed to find the time. DH tells me its all organised, the flights, the hotel and the wonderful granny to baby-sit. How fantastic, and we cant wait! How in heavens name did my friends manage to keep it all a secret from me for this long! Shall I phone my friends Siobhan and her hubby Brian to say Im excited and wish it was February now? Better not as its 6am on Christmas morning and if I show my quite frightening level of hysteria at this stage, they might decide to cancel. Yes, better to break them in gently and play it cool. I phoned at 6.30am instead.
