Fountain in the Jardin in Nimes

The usual drag to the creche & supermarket today. I downloaded and read the user manual for my camera too whilst waiting for 1130am kicking out time at the creche - we've spent a fortune on a camera with image stabiliser and assumed it was working like that... but now I've just learned to turn on the imagine stabiliser.... we're getting there!

After all my problems with the Credit Agricole (most of which haven't been reported here and NONE of which my fault) there's a letter in the post. I read it very quickly (OK, too quickly) and thought they were demanding more money / slapping a ban on me for some reason (OK, panicked reasoning here) - I scanned it and emailed it to my new banker Robin, at Banque Chaix and he was on the phone straight away, saying no, in fact Cred Ag want to give me Euro34 back.... I fainted!

An afternoon setting up Client's Time sheets on Google docs (really good system actually...) and re-formatting my camera. (suddenly I have an extra 600 photos to take... where did they come from?)

The creche photos are back today - I've ordered some for us and one for French granny and one for English auntie. BTW, it's French mother's day this Sunday... 'A' - are you listening???

I'm now going to upload photos and video from the Feria last Monday... so go back and read there.... Photo here in Jardin de Fontaines in Nimes.
