Today the first thing I said when I woke up was “white rabbits”.
This is something my parents always did on the 1st March and I have carried on the tradition !! It’s a silly thing but apparently it is supposed to bring you luck.
With February now behind us I feel that things are looking up. Even if winter weather comes back to bite us for a while, at least spring is not so far away.
And not only that, for me today is a red letter day. This means a day of major significance involving a letter.
Today I handed in my notice at work and I will be retiring at the end of May.
This means I will have the summer months to relax or do the gardening, or all the little jobs that we just never have time to do. There is also of course the chance that we might be able to spend more time in Le Grand-Pressigny. Alex and Nicole have successfully installed telephone and internet for us so that Nick will be able to work “from home” – just imagine how good that will be for him, sitting on our little terrace overlooking the rooftops of the village while working at his computer. And I will be able to ……. just enjoy being on holiday for longer than usual.
That’s the theory, anyway !!
Instead of looking for photos of white rabbits and red letters to post with my announcement, I decided to use photos of some of the flowers that were in our little garden when we arrived chez nous last spring. I just can’t wait to see them again and I absolutely can’t wait for the end of May.
Wish me luck !!
