Le bonnet blanc…

Two more French phrases:

C’est bonnet blanc et blanc bonnet :
Literally: It’s hat white and white hat:
It’s six of one and half a dozen of the other.

Chat échaudé craint l’eau froid:
Literally: A scalded cat fears cold water:
Once bitten, twice shy.

Taken from: ‘Don’t toss Granny in the Begonias: Faut pas pousser Mémé dans les Bégonias. By Marie-Hélène Claudel-Gilly and Primrose Arnander.
