Today we wait it for the Adoucissor (water softener) man. He's coming to renew the contract for this house and do a little maintenance to the machine.
Apparently we aren't using hard enough salt pastilles and there is no battery in the computer - so it's recharging itself twice as much as it should do... oh dear. Suitably told off - we promise to do better... and provide a battery.
In this area of France the water is soooo hard. My skin needs moisturiser all the time and the dishwasher and washing machine need cleaning liquids too. With this machine here I feel I can't get the soap out of my hair and feel totally different... it's a must for us for our new house....
Lots of things crossed off my to-do list today... and I make a cherry clafoutis and an apple tart too.
