Monday Nook


Image Courtesy House Beautiful.

I love this idea of tucking a little garden table into the corner of a living room. Finishes off that particular corner nicely.  A perfect spot for blogging I say! I have admired this image before in the past for the split level living. I am looking at it through different ‘nook’ eyes today!

We’re off to do some food challenges, under medical supervision, at the hospital.  Little one is going to take on almonds and lupin today, with his epipen and his doctor close by. He’s so brave. Fingers crossed … he might be able to set foot in a French Patisserie after all…. as long as they don’t have cacahuètes (peanuts).

“Je suis allergique aux cacahuètes” … we’re practising…. “et tous les écrous? ….. is that how you say all nuts?… as in food – nuts …… and not crazy – nuts?

Happy Monday!

      He was brave but oh so melodramatic. I resorted to bribes to calm him down so we didn’t get any breathless false positives!

      All good. It was all so worth it. Green light for almonds which will make patisseries much easier to deal with!

    Ha,ha,ha, I was concerned with what nut I was referring to! Yes, I gathered it was noix when I read the labels on the test solutions at the hospital today. They were all in French! Merci beaucoup mon ami!? Je parle francais un peu! Questionable spelling as I am learning rudimentary conversational French. Emergency French I call it!
