Hello Dear Reader,
I just gave in to tiredness and aches yesterday and took the day off. Well, sort of!
We went to the dechetterie and recycled everything we could. The staff stand and point, or wag a finger if you get it wrong or shout ‘allez’ and point that you need to move on as there’s someone else waiting. We’ve learned what we have to do and did it.
After a slow lunch at home, we went to Brico depot and I feel like a local now. Even managed a conversation in French. I stood around, like a brico widow, whilst DB furtled about and had knowing exchanges with equally bored French women about waiting for our husbands.
We found it to be so cheap in there that we’ll brave more work ourselves than we first intended, like buying a cheaper stove, new bigger water tank and so on. It’ll all have to be saved for and those things will come in time.
I’m also going to contact Orange and get a phone line/internet/tv package. They let you switch it on and off so to speak so you only pay when you’re there. I often have no phone or Internet signal and I’m going to change that.
Today? More painting, kitchen fitting, taking the dogs to the vet for travel roc endures, tidying and off to visit a friend.
See you tomorrow,
Love Froogs xxxxx
