The Countdown

We are rather in something of an hysteria here in London. If it has escaped your notice, well, there's a certain event happening here on Friday (the clue is in the red, white and blue hanging all the way down Regent Street here to Piccadilly Circus).



Le marriage. But best of all, we get an extra day's bank holiday. That has meant with Easter first and May Day on it's heels, we have two 4-day back to back bank holiday weekends.

Take off the extra 3 days in between and I'm not back to work for another week. Hurrah!

We went shopping today in Oxford Street/Regent Street, and We are transformed.

So, is MadeInScotland getting ready to street party or else to watch DVDs or old films all day Friday?

Bunting, or bah humbug (see the red, white and blue yet)?

Just wait and see...

I love it - we have that day off as well - plus I was on vacation for 1 day the week before Easter - so that's 3 back-to-back 4 days weeks - but who's counting :)

Je bien préfère l'option DVD pour être honnête. Essayez de rester aussi loin du centre-ville que possible. Je vais quitter le pays dans ce but...
Si la météo est bonne, on peut avoir une partie privée avec des amis au lieu...

That is exactly what we are going to do, (but on the Saturday for the party option), though my friend will contrary to your advice be heading right to the centre of town to watch. I think it's gonna rain...

BTW your french is very good.

thanks... I have a problem speaking quickly and efficiently French but I am OK in writing/reading (when I have all the time I need).
My French friend is a bit snobbish and he doesn't like me practicing with him. He says I butcher his language with my accent... :-S
