Wot Pots?

Up and out the door for the creche at the crack of dawn (well it feels like it..) I don't look too hard at the house as I climb into the car.

With the help of Pennie & Gerry I put together the July & August newsletter for www.BritsNimes.com and get back to Aubais for lunchtime.

I park the car and am stunned to see that the lovely blue herb pot from the kitchen windowsill and the three little terracotta pots containing pink begonias have disappeared. You may remember that they'd disappeared as well as the huge Cypress pot being heaved onto the kitchen windowsill during the Nimes feria a month or so ago...

Well, I've walked up and down the street and can't see the pots anywhere (last time the rascals had just moved the pots 5 doors up the road..) I can't believe it... if they were worth something I could understand... the funny thing is, the beautiful potted Olive and the huge Inox Cypress are still there... and they would be worth something... I wouldn't mind, but the neighbour has a very 'busy' garden with over 50 lovely pots (a bit of an overkill in my mind to be honest) and his garden is perfect to the 'enth degree... nothing missing. He does tell me that it's unfortunately common around here.

So flaming annoying!!!
