But not in the kitchen. At least not now. And maybe not for a while — the contractor hasn’t finished yet (yes, things are the same the world over) and the oven couldn’t get up the staircase and there was a petit leak in the bathroom.
And internet service? “It will appear magically,” is a rough translation of what Mme. France Telecom told me, and so we must wait.
All this to say that you might not be hearing much from me for a little while. (Although, if I can find a cozy internet spot and some time, I am going to try to respond to comments and, if I can unpack my books, come up with the list of cookies Victoria requested for Operation Baking Gals.)
Thank you all so very much for your well wishes — I needed them and it looks like I’ll need them for a bit more.
A bientot — I hope.
