Abacaxi & Hortelã goes French...

(picture from www.linternaute.com)

Yep! Going French!

Not bad at all, don't you think?

After a lovely 6 years in Brazil, we are now making our new home in France for a couple of years (that's the life of an expat...).
Closer to our home country of the Netherlands, so expecting quite a lot of visitors year round... although we couldn't complain 'bout that in Brazil either. Living in historical Versailles, with Paris just around the corner. Now that will definitely attract a lot of family & friends!

Still busy with the house these days, still need to do some painting and other bits & pieces need to be taken care of! It always takes more time than you anticipate, doesn't it?

So off I am! Running errands!
Have a great Thursday!

Game & puzzle time...
After a game of Monopoly & Risk (I lost both!!), we started this 1,000 pieces puzzle.
Cold outside, warm & cosy inside, cup of tea, glass of wine (depending on the time of the day of course) and trying to put the pieces together.
Good for an unpatient person like me!

Although there are still quite some things to do in & around the house, making this puzzle is quite relaxing! Still not finished, so guess what I'll be doing tonight?

Enjoy this beautiful Thursday!

Des fleurs...

What's a house without a bouquet of flowers? Right, it's just a house. Add a nice bouquet and it becomes a home!

And that's what I finally did last weekend: buying a bunch of tulips, anemones and ranunculus in spicy colours. It really made our house our home!

Have a nice Monday!
