Where did the day go?

Up and out to the park (for Alicia to go on the Bon-gon (slide) and get rid of excess energy... back home via the bank, chemist (I've burnt my foot on my hot water bottle - yes it does get that cold in the South of France...) and the butcher (other half won't let me buy meat from the supermarket - it has to come from the local butcher) and finally the bread shop 5 doors down the road...

Then home for pasta and jambon cru - Alicia dodo (nap) on the sofa in front of 101 Dalmatians and me doing corrections to the English Directory (coming soon really...), proof reading an article on Montpellier for The Languedoc Page's Village article section and A looking up how to put a shopping cart on French Help Services site. Oh, and now the links page works on the FHS site too.

French granny and grandad call from Bordeaux - they're coming down for a few days next week.... Alicia will be happy... her French vocabulary will come on in leaps and bounds.

And finally, merci beaucoup Monsieur H.
