Ten days since my last entry, oh dear I am slacking!!
What has been happening - well, we have had the most awful weather. The wind has been driving me mad, I really hate the high winds, why did we move here??? Some of the departments further south to us have really suffered. Roofs have been torn off and in Spain such damage and those poor children that lost their lives when the roof of their sports hall collapsed. Mother Nature has a lot to answer to. At least it is calmer today and the sun is beginning to shine a bit more. The bulbs are putting their noses through the earth. Spring is on the way, I hope!
I see that in the UK they have at long last admitted that they are in a recession - What!!! didn't they realise before now... The Banks need to be bailed out - WHY??? Mr Flippin' Prudence Brown sold off the UK Gold reserves years ago as well as stealing the hard earned pensions - now wonder the UK is in such a financial state, and then HE has the cheek to say that he predicted the current problems 10 years ago... Who the 'fuck' does he think he is kidding..... makes me sick. He is a true Scot bringing England down by stealth..... The whole government seem to be a conspiracy against the English - William Wallace started all this all those years ago and then when you get down to it Wallace was an Irishman!!!! Boo sucks!!!
I am so glad I am here in France, Petit Nicolas has sacked Rachida as she is apparently not doing the job properly - he apparently is also getting lessons on improving his stamina for 'amour'. I would rather read about French politics than English any day...
Am intrigued about Barak Obama, he is such a new broom, will his sweeping make a difference to the 'dust' in the world. He has made some promises, Guantanamo - what will happen to the inmates there? Will they be tried in the US, UK or where-ever or will they be released to go about their lives, if they have a life now. Oil independance; how will that work, will they reduce the consumption of oil based fuels in the US? Hmmm - needs a lot of thought that one. There is plenty of alternative energy out there.
Our local car factory has been helped through some troubled times by the Indian company Argentum Motors. They have saved many jobs. Heuliez has been in Cerizay for a very long time and has employed so many local people. The latest for them is to make doors and windows for Eurocopter. It is a reprieve for a long running company. They are leaders in electric cars and buses and for the factory to close (there is another one at Rorthais) would be a devastating blow to the local economy. Our neighbour Gilles is an electrician at the factory and is only on 2 days a week at the moment. He has been on 3 days for the last 18 months, at least he still has a job. Bless him, he has a plan for if and when!!
Our dear, sweet Georges, now 9 months old, is suffering with teeth, his two first bottom teeth are through and look fantastic but the first of the upper canines is sitting there looking angry and giving him some pain. Most of the time Georges is such a happy little boy, laughing at so many things through the day. As soon as he sees Sunny or Pixie he says "cat". He has his priorities...... what are Mum and Dad to a fluffy cat???
Charlotte is doing well at school. M. Clement is very pleased with her progress and her performance in class is excellent - providing he is watching everything she is doing - but as soon as he takes his eyes off her -everything goes to pot!!! We all know that she is very intelligent and she has the ability but she needs constant attention - she can so easily be distracted...
Ian is cracking on with getting his house sorted. He has also been contacted with a job offer at Moncoutant. We will see on that one!!
