Cosy Afternoon, Cactus Flower and Metro Music

20 Nov

We came home to such a hoolie  last night, lashing rain and howling winds. Today is calm and we have spent a rare afternoon in front of the fire and I finished off the once hot chestnuts that I bought in Paris!We also came home to one glorious flower on our Christmas cactus.On our last but one Metro journey, a man with a saxophone joined the carriage. We could hardly believe when he started to play Take Five by Dave Brubeck as this was a piece introduced to me by the lovely Mr S very soon after we met and one we played incessantly. Since we were in Paris to celebrate our meeting 50 years ago, it seemed just right to hear it on our last day in the city. It’s a strange video as I didn’t want passengers to feel that I was filming them but I hope it gives you a flavour of the moment.​[wpvideoAMJKWYOo]
