We went to Carentan shopping this afternoon in the pouring rain and discovered in the local 'supermarche' the most amazing bread that we hadn`t tried before. Their "in house" patisserie produces chestnut bread. Ooooooooooh.......the taste is amazing and wonderful; shame it's not really a good discovery as the New Year diet has just started!!!
Even though we know the route to Carentan with our eyes shut I decided to try out, en route, the car Sat Nav I bought Mark for Christmas. I had such fun changing the choice of available voices from Jill to Edward but my best choice was when we were driving through the country lanes being instructed in Chinese! A bit like a Chinese taxi ride but I am not really sure that Ming-Hoa will be much use when we really do need instructions to a location.
Still on the subject of technical things we have now finally downloaded Skype so we are now able to both talk to and see our kids back in the UK. What a scream - and what a saving it shall be on the phone bill!!! I feel I have to dress up for the video calls so did my first one in a very elegant hat and plan to do tomorrow's calls in a pair of fluffy rabbits ears.
Can`t have the kids thinking I`ve turned normal can I?
A la prochaine mes belles..............
