Has anyone ever read Colette? Her work was intriguingly and lovingly described in a book I'm reading and I'm wondering if she still holds up and if anyone can give me an off-the-cuff recommendation. I'm in the middle of Frances Mayes A Year in the World which is making me want to travel and to eat, and to read. So many places to go!!

It's the weekend and I'm oh so glad. I skipped out a little early this afternoon from work, egged on by the party atmosphere of a workplace that is packing up and getting ready to move to new premises on Monday morning. It's the same building, but a new wing in a floor that was previously occupied by another company who made some very colorful albeit rather bizarre interior decoration choices: purple and blue chairs, red sofas, yellow shag carpets, black-and-white-spotted COWSKIN throw rugs. But it's clean and NEW and bigger and we're all looking forward to more space and most especially more offices for all those who have been sitting in cramped conditions in open landscaping.

It's my 5th office in 4 years, which gives you some idea of how quickly we've been expanding. When I joined the marketing department just over 4 years ago, there were 7 people in the department. Now we're 26 and still growing. A good feeling :)

We've moved all of Karin's furniture out of her room and Anders is heading to the paint store tomorrow morning for paper to cover the floor with and sandpaper to begin sanding down the wallpaper border in her room. I'm getting excited about this project and have all kinds of ideas about how to decorate. Whee!

I think I have my bounce back :)

Yea! for the bouncing! Karin's room ideas sound perfect for her! Have fun with the decorating. I'm into that also- painting the guest room this week-end with a color change that will mean a few other things will need to be changed also. Love, Lizardmom

I wish you would take pictures with your digital camera and EMAIL THEM TO ME, Mom! hahahahaa!!! :D

HA! IN your dreams! Besides I don't want anyone to see what a horrible job I've done so far- having never painted walls before! Looks like I'll have to redo a couple of them! :( Love, Lizardmom

you've been there 4 years? already? dang time flies!!

have fun with the new decorating project :)

It was 4 years in October! I know! Time DOES fly!

Glad to see someone's work growing as so much is faltering these days. Have fun with the kid's rooms and bounce on, woman! Have a great weekend!

People are starting to be cautious but so far, so good. :) It's a really nice change from my LAST job.

I would suggest starting Colette with eithe "Mitsou" or "Gigi".

ooh! thank you :)

Yay for the bounce!


Yesterday when we went to the movies we stopped by the candy store next to Royal in Malmö - they had orange flavoured tictacs there ...

Just thought you might want to know?

Good to know, thanks! :)

I have devoured all of Frances Mayes books! I love her writing and 'A Year in the World' just barely touches on her gift. Once you've finished this go on to In Tuscany, Bella Tuscany, and more.

The office decor reminds me of that character, what's his name? the shaggy one . . .oh yes, Austin Powers!

I read Under the Tuscan Sun quite awhile ago and liked it (before the film I think).

And the decor isn't quite as bad as Austin Powers, haha!! :D
