Day 48 from France:
In Dire Need Of Sleep

Shaboom sends us her update from Paris...

Breakfast was a bun with pear jam and a cup of tea. Then I walked to the market to sell vegetables for 8 hours. While there, I ate 10 raspberries, 1 strawberry, 1 bite of pineapple, 1/2 a clementine, 1 blueberry, 1 tomato the size of a quarter and a macaron that our neighboring baker gave me. From home I packed a lunch of 1 plain crepe and 3 madeleines.

The stand in which I work is next to a fish monger. He tried to feed me some salmon salad on crackers but I politely declined. Don't know why, but I'm not a fan of salmon.

I took the train from the market to the clothes shop for my second 8 hour shift of the day. Oh, the glamorous life of a shopgirl!

There was a train strike and I was late for work. Awesome. Got chewed out by my co-worker who thinks she is the boss of me. Whatever.

When I finally got home, I ate a ham cheese egg crepe, some Cider from Brittany, a yogurt, 1 madeleine, 1 piece of raspberry tart which wasn't very good.

I was exhausted and fell flat on my face into bed at around 11pm or so. There was lots of groping but I was too tired to notice.


  1. Fruits and vegetables! I love the fish heads. Beautiful photos.
    I think I'm getting the small portions part.


  2. Beautiful photos.
    The fish look angry. Can we blame them?

  3. if it has the eyes still attached then I can't eat it. bleh.
