Today I wish.....

....that Mr FF & I were here staying at the very Le Couvent hotel which is about a 4 hour drive from where we live so is perfect for a short getaway.

It is cold and wet here today which is most unusual for this time of the year but the forecast is for warmer temperatures tomorrow.

We spent a few days staying at Le Couvent late year and we loved it as all the rooms have kitchens and they have a spa and fabulous lounge with lots of gorgeous books - a lot of which are interior design or travel focused.



I love the colours that they have used as the suit the style of the building and also the area in which the old building - an old convent, is situated.


Some of the bigger suites come complete with fabulous and oh so comfy lounge area, perfect for cosying up whilst the rain is beating down outside.

Back to reality, I have to go and tidy up the shop, iron some more antique table cloths and start cleaning my typewriter which is still sitting on my desk and will make the wrapping of my cutomers purchases difficult tomorrow as we are open every Thursday morning.

I have not seen the plasterers yet but am hoping that they will return soon to complete the plastering of the kitchen.



I wish you a fabulous day and hope that it is warm and sunny where you are....

Je vous souhaite une merveilleuse journée, j'espère qu'il est chaud et ensoleillé où vous êtes..

  12. Leeann - If Mr FF can't make it because he is too busy fixing your typewriter and building the kitchen, I would love to accompany you to Le Couvent in his place!

    Talk about being back to real life!!! C'est le déluge. I keep waiting for Noah's ark to float by!!

  13. Le Couvent is 10 minutes up the road from me! If it's any consolation, it's freezing and miserable here too.....
