petite anglaise

not for sale on ebay, yet

Having spent a giddy few hours feeling fabulous with a champagne flute welded to my hand, I spent most of today welded to a mop and vacuum cleaner. Oh the glamorous life I lead…

I’m too tired right now to post properly about this, but I did want to link to the flickr photos. And also to show you the ingenious gift I received from the one and only Frog with a Blog (not to be confused with Mr Frog), who offered me my very own petite anglaise dollTM.

Behold her dark-rimmed glasses! Puzzle over the fact that she appears to be handcuffed to a bottle of Heineken! (I’m not sure that’s quite the image I want to project?)

According to the back of the box, Frog with a blog, Bookpacker and Blagueur versions are also available.

Update: Oh my! There is video evidence of my tipsyness. Explicit content, viewer discretion advised.


  1. Love the dress, looked like a suitably fabulous party! I am saving your book until after a dreaded interview next thursday as a reward for all my hardwork and i can’t wait!

  2. Can we guess who The Boy is from the photos? :)
    Was Mr. Frog at the party?

    I hope you’ve forgotten about the mean reviews, just relish the moment…

  3. Looked like a great party !

    Is there a chance of there being a (even fuzzy) glimpse of the future Mr-petiteanglaise ?

  5. I was trying to figure out if The Boy was there too!

    And I think ‘poupee’ is my favourite French word. Never fails to amuse me.

  6. Hi – did you know you got a picture on the home page of the Guardian Unlimited website today? I’m a fellow brit, also in Paris for over a decade now, and living just down the road at Ménilmontant. I’d never heard of your blog until now. It would be interesting to compare experiences over a coffee or thé à la menthe one day. Best, Peter.
