I’m back from a two-night stay in Paris with my husband and daughter.

It’s long been one of our favourite cities, and Paul and I used to visit often, but we had no idea what a trip there might be like with a two-and-a-half year old. Well … it was fun! Melody had her head tickled by a succession of waiters, many games of hide-and-seek were played in locations both indoor and outdoor, and obscene amounts of chocolate- and pastry-based foodstuffs were consumed. There was also the Serge Gainsbourg exhibition at the Cité de la Musique, and a friend treated us to a three-course meal in our beloved Rue Mouffetard.
