One week to go to the Paris Marathon,and John and I decided to drive the route to pick out some points and get some idea of what our children will be seeing.
The weather was changeable,with sudden downpours ,followed by glorious spring sunshine.Paris was looking majestic ,as if it was having a spring-clean ,with flowers springing up,and church bells ringing ,and tourists milling out onto the roads.Signs for the marathon were going up,and lines marking the kilometres painted accross the roads.I am beginning to get nervous ,as if it is me doing this!
For the most part,it seems to take in the glorious parts of Paris,and if the blossom is out and the sun ,it should be a wonderful sight.
My problem is that I don`t want to miss out,but i don`t know where i am going to be able to stand ,or preferably sit,to see any of it.I do wish i had been given a disabled badge.I am not even sure how i am going to be able to get into Paris,as they recommend public transport,but last time i went, it made me feel awfully sick.
Still,we will do it by hook or by crook.
By the way,we only got half-way round by car as it was full of one-way streets-and that was in two hours!!
If you can come and support,do let me know,and it is not too late to pledge a donation if you have not already, as we are so close to our targets,the addresses of which you will find on the right of my blog.
I will spend today planting some bulbs-which is a bitter/sweet activity for me,nowadays.
Bless you all that read my blog ,and may today be renaissance of all things good.
