The big sulk...................................

Well that's it! The big sulk is on!!! Since last week we have had  emails each day explaining that, due to the petrol rationing, more and more couples were having to cancel their attendance at the luncheon in Paris. But with the lure of the Sunday morning flea market I was adamant we should still make our way there as the train tickets as we'd  booked our train tickets..
But at the last minute an email from SNCF explained that due to the protests and blockades in Paris there would be disruptions as the train workers joined the cause and were planning to strike - and our journeys there and back couldn't be guaranteed.
So.....we had to finally give in  -  thus THE BIG SULK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I consoled myself instead with a tour of the local brocantes.....................

.....................okay so I suppose that eases the disappointment a little.....

......................NOT!

  1. Bonjour Shirley,
    SOrry you had to cancel. The greve has been a big paing in the neck for so many. Luckily, we have had no problems where we live in Paris!! The Metro and buses are still running, though on half capacity (or less). The problem is actually getting here by train.
    Don't worry, things well clear up...eventually!
    Good week anyway,
    Mimi
