De Oude Huize, Bed & Breakfast, and Love Letters

We like to share De Oude Huize and everything about Love, Letters and Weddings

Yes you have guest correct To start with . . . my special all time favourite is the song of Edith Piaf. 
Non, Je Ne Regrette Rein.
Edith Piaf 

Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien, 
Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien - Regret Nothing 
Non! Rien de rien . . . 
Non! Je ne regreete rien 
Ni le bien qu'on m'a fait ni le mal 
Tout ca m'est bien egal! 
No! Absulutely nothing 
No I regret nothing . . . 
It is paid, swept away, forgotten 
I don't care about the past!
Balayes les amours 
avec leurs tremoios 
Balayes pour toujours 
Je repars a zero 
No Absulutely nothing ... 
No I regret nothing 
Neither the good that I've done nor the bad 
all this is much the same to me!
Because my life, because my joys.

Then there is Dr Shavargo the novel, the movie . . .

you name it. 
I am an all time fan. 
A very special novel 

Old fashioned, soul-filling and a thoroughly romantic story. 

During the wonderful days of letter writing 
and letter typing life was different.  Nothing 
was to much of an effort
It is a good rule after reading a new book,
never to allow yourself another new one till you have read an old one in between.

Love is the master key which opens the gates of happiness. 
A typewriter is a means of transcribing thought, not expressing it

A Christmas Card from my Grandfather to Granny and 
the little gift that accompanied
Little fits for a special Granny
