Smashing time

We're off on Sunday on the www.trainavapeur.com from Anduze - so I have to call the final numbers through (we're going as a group from BritsNimes)... she's very helpful - but couldn't quite grasp our group name (in the end on the Sunday our carriage was marked Mme Briths!)

When I was driving back from the creche on Wednesday a huge lorry drove by and a stone hit the windscreen - smack in the middle - so we have a rather deep dent in the glass now - I called MAFF our insurance company in Lunel and she told me the name of the windscreen menders they use in Lunel - I just have to call them to make an appointment and they take care of all the insurance paperwork and we pay nothing and lose no no claims bonus either.... Really impressed. Just have to get around to taking the car in now.

The police station call about my carte grise - they won't accept my mutuelle paperwork as proof I live where I live - all our EDF bills etc are in 'A's' name - I am having difficulty in proving I live there - they want an attestation of the CPAM now ... ho hum... I have to trail into the backstreets of Lunel for that...

I pick up one of 'A's' birthday presents today from the post office - a book called Lego NXT - don't ask!
