Went down to breakfast which was great, cereal, croissants etc, the girls decorated my room with 60th hangings whilst I was in the loo!! We then walked to the Gare D'Lyon but had trouble finding the ticket office!! amy at last found it and got us all tickets for Fontainbleu. We got in a double decker train and the journey only took about 40mins. Came out and got a bus to the Chateau which was near the middle of the town. We got there about 11 ish and got tickets for 8 duro which included the audio guide. It was very quiet, hardly anyone else was there which was such a surprise, I'd imagined Versailles!! The rooms were amazing, the guide was good with masses to see. I was surprised that napoleon had made it his palace and abdicated from there. We then walked through the gardens as the sun was shining and it was quite warm which was a bonus. We walked back into the town and got some baguetts which we ate near the market, delicious! then got the trian back.
After a rest we went out for supper and found another great place in the same road as before. This time the girls had prepared questions for me, if I got them right i got a present, if i got them wrong they stuck the notelet on me!!! I got 9 right and 5 wrong, the big error was guessing Lucy liked baked beans! I got presents for my age, a hot water bottle for my feet, thermal soles, manoucure set, wool with knitting needles, 2 buspasses cases, spectacles repairer and a boggle puzzel book!!! Great fun. meal was good too though the waitress kept walking pass us to look what was going on!! We walked back past the Gobelins tapestry factory which unfortunately wasn't open whilst we were in Paris, then went to bed.
