A grey and wet and miserable start to the day. For the PONs there's no such thing as a miserable day. Only great days and today which is going to be the best day ever.
Angus looks at the stone floor on the terrace and wonders if he'll ever get it power washed clean.
The ladies from the women's cooperative are due this morning to paint two bathrooms and paper two bedrooms downstairs. Angus shifts furniture and covers beds with dust sheets. Aude, the bipolar decaratrice, thinks they'll do it in a week. '' If not we'll probably do it in two ". Angus quietly despairs over this cheerfully delivered imprecision.
At the supermarket something that we must have passed a hundred times but never noticed. An outside washing machine and dryer. The washing machine can do a 18 kilo load. Someone is already using it.
In the garden centre Christmas is having an extended run. 50% off selected items. It must have been a miserable season for retailers. The yellow vest protesters seem to have put a lot of people off shopping. We see that they're out in force again by the roundabout piling up wood to light a fire .
Probably the oddest thing I've read in a while and definitely not a good idea : http://time.com/5443732/vaev-tissue-cold-flu/
