This turned out to be a French day! Antonia had an unexpected playdate with a local Franco/New Zealand family, and we went along for morning coffee. Then Mike and I went out for lunch in childless splendour, pottered around all afternoon, then went back for an aperitif with more French people. We had a really nice time, and have exchanged a few children's books. All in all it was a fun recovery day. Tomorrow, Antonia goes back for a birthday party! It started to rain in the middle of the afternoon, so the temperature dropped like a rock.
