Hi lovely readers!

 

 

First, I'm sorry if there were any spelling mistakes in the last post (my mom spotted a few in the French part): Shadow told me it was sometimes difficult to reach the right key with his paws!

 

Tout d'abord, je présente toutes mes excuses pour les éventuelles coquilles du dernier article (merci, maman!): Shadow m'a confié qu'il est parfois difficile de taper avec ses papattes!

News about the infamous JK (aka Japanese Knotweed): it's getting a little tired, meaning it's still growing, but a tiny wee bit slower! What's quite unfair is that meanwhile I'm completely exhausted. Tonight somebody told me that JK hated buttermilk, so I'm gonna try, you never know!

Des nouvelles de ma fameuse RJ (Renouée du Japon): elle se fatigue très légèrement pendant que je m'épuise, ce que je trouve injuste, mais plutôt encourageant. On m'a parlé du lait ribot pour la combattre. Quelqu'un a-t-il essayé?

I was thinking that a little time for myself wouldn't hurt when I got the next assignement for Beach Cottage Saturday Club: soaking in a bath. Perfect! According to me, bath is an art. Maybe it should be taught at school, I could totally teach that. By the way, this mission does explain the weird pictures above!

Juste comme je pensais que prendre un peu de temps pour moi serait bon pour le moral, j'ai reçu dans ma boîte mail les consignes du weekend pour le Club du site "A Beach Cottage" (explications dans cet article). Mission: se prélasser dans un bain. Super!

Side note: please ignore anything decor-related as the bathroom is as it was made by previous owner!

 

I chose to have a see-weed bath (just to keep the weed theme, you know). It gives the water a really weird color, but it's heaven! And I added some candles, as requested. The "Spa" one is a gift from my mom. And I poured myself a drink. What are you betting it was? White wine? Champagne? Sorry to disappoint you, it was elderberry cordial. Less glamourous maybe, but also less expensive and safer as I'm not sure I can get out of the bathtub if I drink alcohol.

J'ai choisi un bain aux algues. Cela donne une couleur affreuse à l'eau, mais c'est extrêmement détendant... J'ai allumé quelques bougies, la seule chic étant un cadeau de ma maman. Et je me suis versé un verre de... pétillant de sureau. Bon, d'accord, ça manque de glamour, mais au moins, je sors du bain sans être pompette!

Do you know I'm always reminded of  "Anne of Green Gables" when I pour myself cordial? There's a chapter in the first book where she gets her best friend drunk offering her what she thinks is cordial and is actually alcohol!

So here's where I didn't do the assignement right: the book is something I'm reading for my pupils and not really for me. But working in a bath, things could be worse, huh?

 

IMGP2848

 

Bon, d'accord, j'ai un peu travaillé dans le bain en lisant un livre pour ma bibliothèque de classe. Mais, travailler dans un bain, ce n'est quand même pas le bagne!

 

A last glimpse of the window that is directly above the bathtub.

What do you do when you need to relax?

Tu as eu bien raison ! Occupe toi un peu de toi, laisse tomber ta renouée et tes élèves ! Penses à toi que diable ! On n'a qu'une vie !!!
