So just before I got ill last year I went with my parents to Paris on a secret mission to surprise my Uncle who was taken there by my cousin Lydia as it was his 80th birthday party. Back in the 1950’s my uncle David Brotherton had met Jim Haynes at Edinburgh University and have kept up their friendship. So we hatched a plan to get David to Paris to one of Jim’s legendary Sunday Night Dinners and we would surprise him there! The plan worked perfectly. We had a wonderful evening – it was so balmy we even sat / stood outside.
(I give up since I stopped blogging regularly there have been changes to wordpress cannot move that pic! However my cousin Lydia on the left persuaded a stranger to take a photograph of us all outside the legendary Shakespeare & Co where we had repaired for coffee now they have a cafe)
