Bonjour à tous!
I'm busy as a bee and so I'm more than a little late with blogging, both in writing and reading: about a hundred of your wonderful posts are impatiently waiting to be read in my mailbox!
Je suis un peu débordée et je ne prends pas le temps le soir d'écrire mon petit article, ni malheureusement, de lire tous les articles que je reçois dans ma boîte mail... Mais je vais me rattraper!!
But it's the end of the school year. So staff meetings are compulsory, even if you're just a substitute visiting for a few weeks. Do I need to tell you how boring it is when you're only here for the company and can't give your opinion as you barely know the school?
C'est la fin de l'année et les conseils de classe et les réunions se multiplient... Même si je ne suis que la remplaçante qui ne fait que passer dans le collège!
Also, my dance school is preparing for the end of the year show, which means lots of rehearsals... I agreed in September to be "Alice" as I had been told I would just be on stage so that the different routines performed by the children would seemed to be linked (they all do something that evokes Wonderland)... But now it means I have to be present for all the different groups' reheasals!!! Who am I kidding? I love every moment of it, but I can't deny it's time consuming!!! The laundry waiting to be dealt with in the bathroom is about the size of Mount Everest!
De plus, comme chaque année à cette époque, les répétitions pour le spectacle de danse se multiplient. Conséquence immédiate: ma pile de linge sale est en passe de dépasser le Mont Everest... Je vais peut-être rentrer dans le livre des records!
Last week, a dear friend visited and we managed to go hiking in some wonderful places in between rehearsals. The weather was perfect. And can you believe the colour of the sea? Does it look like it's in France? I thought I was on a Carribean island, at least.
La semaine dernière, une amie est venue me rendre visite et l'on a réussi à glisser quelques petites ballades entre deux répétitions! Non, mais vous avez vu la couleur de la mer? Juste à quelques minutes de la maison! Je sais, j'ai tellement de chance.
I would like to thank my friend in this post as she's such a sweetie, always smiling... Even if I wasn't always in the best of health during her stay! Thanks, Delphine, for being who you are!
We spent a lot of time admiring wondeful houses.
Seeing all these houses actually gave me new energy for the remodel that's going to take place in July at the Little White House: choosing tiles, doors and switches is like going to Wonderland - a mix of dream and nightmare!
