I suspect many of you are bored of me wanging on about my holiday by now. Unfortunately for you this post is indeed about France. I've almost become obsessed with it to be honest. I love the language and have attempted to start learning it but I always seem to get side tracked and don't get very far. Whilst I there on holiday I attempted to use some of my rubbish skills but pretty much as soon as I said Bonjour! They guessed I was English and just spoke to me in my own language instead. I also had a French ski instructor and he constantly spoke in french to the other girl in my group who didn't speak a word of English so I found myself trying to listen in and make sense of the conversation but I managed to work out that it was going to snow on wednesday, and then rain lower down and that he has two kids, one who is 6 and one who is 8!
I can't see my current obsession with France dying down any time soon. I have spent some of the weekend making a mountains illustration (which you can see in the previous post) which will be going on Society6 later this evening. Weirdly, I can't stop dreaming about it either! Almost every dream for the last week or so has had something to do with France and the Alps. I think my brain is trying to tell me to man up and get a job in a ski resort for a season. I know it would do wonders for my confidence (as I'm quite a shy person) but I don't have to guts to actually go ahead with it. It wouldn't be so bad if I already knew someone out there but doing the whole thing on my own would be utterly terrifying! I barely survived the first week of uni let alone moving abroad alone. Maybe one day I'll get there. If not then I'll just have to visit on holidays and carry on living in my dreams.
