Au revoir Mai......

{image from here}

Today I feel like doing exactly this, just leaning back and enjoying the ride.

May has been a month that I am pleased to wave goodbye to. It has been a busy and also a sad month as we lost a dear friend of ours, and it gave us both a dose of reality.

Life is so precious and oh so short and we all need to make the best of every day.

On that note mes amis, I am off to start painting the kitchen cupboards as this is the week that we need to get our new kitchen finished and there is still lots to do...


Wishing you all a very happy week/

Je vous souhaite à tous une semaine très heureux,

L x

  15. I stopped in for PS but glad I was late. I had a chance to poke around your blog and it's just wonderful. I'm sorry May was rough; best wishes that your June is better!

    So sorry for the belated Pink Saturday visit! I realize I'm two days late (and a dollar short, haha!) but there are so many pinks and so little time over this holiday weekend when relatives are visiting! Happy Belated PS!
