Montpellier all day

Out of the house by 9am to meet clients for a shopping trip to Lattes near Montpellier - just near the airport. We spend over an hour in Castorama, buying things like ceiling roses and raw-plugs (sp?) and a video door phone thingy... black and white Euro49 - which I don't think is a bad deal really.

The syndic. that looks after our client's apartment is so slow, we can't wait for them to one day decide to decorate their hallway and staircase and at the same time mend the doorbell and entry phone (incidentally the end of the entry phone in the apartment itself was painted sky-blue-pink and all the buttons stuck fast so it wouldn't work anymore).

Anyway, we installed a fab new entryphone - with knobs-on and it works great. We also spent half an hour trying to get the overly complicated fax machine to receive faxes... so that works great too now.

By the end of it all it was 5pm - so we might as well stay and have another glass of wine in the Estivales in Montpellier ... home for 11pm... blimey, what a long day.
