Pattern, Biscuits and Book No 6

The goldenness and the swirliness of the creamed butter and sugar pleased me.

Like a sunflower

I made musical biscuits this afternoon.

My penultimate book in the Book Challenge is Le Petit Prince. In the Spring before my A Levels, I spent a month (or was it three weeks?) in Toulouse, France living with a family and bought this copy of The Little Prince while there. Just in case anyone should know her, my pen-friend was called Josianne Fromage. I learned so much with the family about French life as well as improving my spoken French. I first saw The Magic Roundabout on tv while there and attended the Christening of a little relative. Josianne later came to Truro to spend time with my family but afterwards we lost contact.

Recently I found a beautiful small English edition to which I treated myself. It has a lovely pale blue ribbon to mark one’s place.

Le Petit Prince, Simple Supper and Wild Strawberries

1   I was first introduced to the beautiful story, Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupéry, many, many years ago when I was in the 6th form and in France for a three week exchange with Josiane Fromage and her family in Toulouse. (Wouldn’t it be just brilliant if she, or someone who knows her, were to read this blog?)  Finding this quotation, “One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eye,”  the Fox speaking to the Little Prince, has inspired me to read it again.
