The perfect French Sunday

(fur coat I was going to buy for €8 but it was too damage to make it worth fixing)
(Blue bag: €1, brown bag: €5, striped top: €1)
(Shirt: flea market, jeans: TopShop, glasses: RayBan, necklace: Barcelona)

I had the perfect French Sunday today: woke up early to go to the flea market with a friend and then went for an afternoon walk in the botanical garden and the area around the Montpellier arc de triomphe before we finished off our day with some coffee and macaroons.  It was a really lovely and relaxing finish to the weekend.  The weather has been perfect recently and it feels like spring is just around the corner for us.  A lot of my friends braved going to the beach on Saturday but for me it's not warm enough yet.  It needs to be at least 25 degrees Celsius for that.

 I had a bit of a farce with my retake this week.  I originally thought it was on Wednesday so I went and it turned out it was going to be on Saturday.  So I went to my exam yesterday at 8am thinking I would just retake the lecture that I had failed the exam for (French Literature of the Middle Ages, 16th and 17th century) so I revised for that.  But it turns out we were being assessed on the work we had done for our seminars so I had to write a literary commentary about a passage from Madame Bovary.  A novel I haven't thought about since I finished my module on it in November.  What a nightmare.  I won't be missing the university here when I leave that's for sure.  But the exam is done now and my efforts for getting up at 6:45 were rewarded when Wales beat England in the rugby as well as winning the Triple Crown.  I was a happy lady last night.

I'm back at university tomorrow after two weeks off.  It'll be good to get back into the swing of things and have a semblance of a routine again.  I also have the other half visiting in one week tomorrow which I'm really looking forward to.  I haven't seen him since November so it'll be nice to see him again.
