Bilingual Stuff on the 'Net & Finally My Mothers Day Present

This looks interesting:
http://www.bilingualbabies.org/modules/news/
and this: http://www.languageland.co.uk/
though can't find the bilingual books mentioned on there. I go to a shop in N
imes called Aigues Vives or something like that... they have a few bilingual books... Amazon.co.uk have a section too.

Picked Alicia up from creche today and got my mothers day present... a plant. She'd apparently not painted much on the pot as she was undecided what to do... and was too busy telling everybody else what to paint. But she potted it up (and everybody else's too! - the teaching assistant told me.)

Spent some time this afternoon deleting old photos and videos.... replying to emails and making calls... exhausted as did the supermarket run this morning - I hate it!

The Alice internet and phone box meant for this house in Aubais we're staying in supposedly turned up today... but there is a diversion on the post from here to our house (don't ask!) - so this morning off to Marsillargues to fetch it - and the post office have lost it.... This flaming box is fated.... would you believe it was ordered 26th October? Alice have given us 3 months free rental because of all the problems... now just waiting for the post office to call me now. However we do have 8 megas of internet instead of 2.... so things aren't half bad.... I miss my own computer though.
