There is no water !
'The font' heads off to London. The Frenchwoman who's renting the flat is unhappy. '' There is no water . How could you rent me a flat without water ? I cannot wash ! " she complains . She then goes on to say that the dishwasher has flooded the kitchen floor. Angus wonders aloud how there can be no water in the bathrooms but too much water in the kitchen. Has she tried turning the shower dial to the 'on' position ? This twin pronged logic is ignored. 'The font' decides that Angus is best not involved in a face to face meeting with the tenant.
No shortage of water here. Around seven thirty the rain stops. When we get down to the valley it starts again. Strange how that happens. A law of dog ownership.
The plumbers mend the hole in the irrigation pipe. An hour of digging and soldering and it's good as new. Bob and Sophie take a hands on role in the whole process. I phone the irrigation man to say there's no need for him to come. '' It was the next job on my list " he says. Angus bites his tongue.
As a treat we go to McDonald's. Bob and Sophie share a small tub of ice cream. They are very happy.
From the noises that float down the hill from the German billionaires chateau during the football match against Brazil we can assume they are also happy.
