I have a new exercise for you about that complicated subject of infinitives, gerunds etc.
I have a happy ending for my story about my not seeing my daughter in Barcelona. She is coming again next week. Fingers crossed.
On the first of May it is Mayday. My other daughter and granddaughters will be out selling bunches of mayflowers in Lyon. They go into the local woods to pick the flowers and then sell them for two euros. The mayflower is also called the lily of the valley.
You might know that the term mayday is also used as an international signal of distress.But why? It has nothing to do with English at all. In French, “m’aidez” means “help me” and that is pronounced “mayday”.
Hope you have a nice week.
