Trust you enjoyed my “Remembrance Day” post. Just popped out to the Boulangerie early this morning to buy our breakfast baguette and caught the end of a ceremony to commemorate the “fallen in the two world wars” in the grand place outside our big church. A lot of blowing of bugles and singing of anthems as the mayor of the village received the flag. Very moving.
It has been a strange week in our little hide out in France. Our hot water boiler has been broken for over 10 days now and despite my valiant attempts to find a “plombier” who can fix it, no luck so far. I think it must be the same the world over, they don’t return your calls the only one who turned up had ordered the wrong part. C’est la vie. I am getting quite used to cold showers and at least my technical “plumbing french vocabulary” has improved.
Here are a few titbits to keep you amused.
|These little cones turn into very useful bags!
|I think this must be the French equivalent of Morris dancers
|This is for sale if anybody has the enthusiasm for a lot of DIY
|I just love the design on these screens
At least some very good news to end the week. I have been featured in The Wall Street Journal
along with some of my favourite bloggers who write for fashionable mature women.
and it’s beautifully warm and sunny here.
Have a great week-end
