Alice ADSL & Montpellier to DIY
Post Office this morning to collect the Alice Box! and back home to install it.
This afternoon we go into Montpellier by tram - tool box in hand... to put a new lock on a letterbox - the letterbox dates back to the time when "things were made to last' and it's locked too would you believe - nobody has a clue as to the whereabouts of the key (this I forget to tell 'A' - oops!) - with much swearing he breaks his screwdriver and then breaks a drill bit. The lock is still in place. We have now called a locksmith!
We drown our sorrows with a beer cocktail on the Place de la Comedie and then go to FNAC to buy a new telephone to go with the new Alice installation... back at the house.
Thought you might like to see where we are living right now - this place is available for rental for anytime up to January 2008 if you are interested.
It's BritsNimes wine bar night tonight - back at the Aubais Wine Bar - so we have a couple of glasses there... I meet a nice Australian lady I haven't seen before... and then a few people came back here for a pizza and some apple pie...
