Mysteries of the modern world.
A morning spent 'talking' with the representative of the rental car company about 'The Fonts' travel problem. He sends me a picture of the sign at the car park. '' How stupid do you have to be to miss that ? ". Angus points out that in the dark,in a Force eight storm, an unlit sign may not stand out. '' You're an idiot " says the man. Except he doesn't quite say that. French customer service is one of the mysteries of the modern world.
Bob and 'The Font' head off for a long power walk round the lake.
Sophie and Angus have a gentle stroll round the village. Sophie is in a 'smell every flower glare at every bird' mood. We are out for a long time but make little progress.
As dusk settles we head upstairs for a game of touch rugby. Sophie grabs the ball and retreats to the kitchen where Chicken Korma is being prepared. In the absence of a ball Bob turns his hand to rug surfing.
It has been a great day although the man at the rental car company may not agree.
