Today I love....

{image from here}


....these bookends, are they not fabulous? I really like them.

Today is a busy day for moi as we had guests leave this morning and have more arriving in a few minutes time so I am keeping my nose to the ground. Not sure that this expression translates into French and will not try it.The last time that I tried translating an English expression into French, my French friend replied why say such a thing so I am now careful as to what I say for obvious reasons as some words do not translate literally and can take on a whole different meaning.

I promise to take some photos of the "not quite finished" kitchen when I come up for air.

A tres bientot,

  11. Hi, sorry left a comment then deleted it - somehow?
    Love the bookends - they're fab.
    I can sympathise with the translation thing, I have french friends who I find looking at me with a bemused expression and so I have now learnt too that some things you just can't translate.
