Hello! Now, I know we all think the French say 'Ooh-la-la!' all the time, but I've noticed that the two 'la's are usually reserved for very dramatic, and usually slightly humourous, occasions. You can add more if you like: 'Ooh la la la LA!' being saved for real surprise. However, the one 'la', as in the title, often comes out as an expression of surprised concern. So I think that sums us up over the last seven days.
Goodbye Auntie Helen
