The week was rather calm for us because the girls had a lot of homework to do. Pietro was supposed to be on holidays, but he had to go to work because one of his colleague had a sprain. 
But on Tuesday evening I found myself alone at home. What did I do? Something I haven’t done for years! 

My name is Laetitia, I’m French, I live just outside Paris and I share with you a small slice of my daily life here in France.

On Monday, Micaela and I went to the Mairie de quartier where we had an appointment to renew her identity card. Micaela should go to Italy with her class at the end of January and her identity card should end at least 6 month before the travel. That what not the case, so we took this appointment. She should get her new card in 2 or 3 weeks.

Last week-end, I attended my first Kung-fu competition, the Open de France de Wushu. It was a long day. I arrived there, in the 13th arrondissement, at 8 o’clock and I put on my routine at almost 3 o’clock in the afternoon. In this episode, I tell you about my first routine, the bare hands one. 
Pietro and our 3 girls, some friends and the other club members were there to support me. It was a great moment!

The episode you are about to hear invites you to take a piece of paper and a pen to draw. My friend Estelle, who is a drawing teacher, is doing this exercice with her students, at the beginning of her sessions. In consist in taking a pen, closing the eyes and follow her voice to draw a portrait à l’aveugle. 
Once you have started, you cannot put the pen in the air. It stays on the paper. 
The result is always abstract and it is out of the « good drawing » standards. This exercice is not to look for perfection and it doesn’t require be a specialist, it only requires to allow yourself be surprised and open-minded. 
It also allows you to do something different in French and to learn the vocabulary related to the face. 

To record this episode, we went to Chez Ninon a nice salon de thé in Paris, rue du Cardinal Lemoine. Their patisseries mix French style and Japanese ingredients. It’s lovely!
