Burgers from heaven
A public sector strike across France. For some reason our local schools are working although in most other regions they're closed. Sophie is greeted by the under eights waiting by the war memorial for their bus. The female PON now expects ear scrunches.
Bright but cold this morning.The field mice have sought warmth in the boiler room.'The Font' has seen one braver field mouse scurrying across the floor in the scullery. Should we buy traps or wait for the temperatures to lift ?
Trouble in the village. The man with anger management issues and a builder working at the chateau have been involved in a dispute over parking. Last night the anger management man grabbed the builder and accused him of driving over the grass on his verge and damaging a rose bush. The builder denied involvement. There was a 'scuffle'. The lady across the road was witness to the whole thing. The gendarmes were called. De-escalation should be the order of the day but it seems the protagonists are ready to escalate.
This morning. at the modern cafe, a young man opens the door of his car and sweeps several brown paper bags of rubbish onto the floor. Angus tells him that it's anti-social. In return the young man says something exceedingly impolite and gives Angus the finger. Sophie discovers that the brown paper bags contain the remains of 4 McDonald's meals. She is of the opinion that many more people should discard their rubbish on the ground.
