L'Élection

Greetings from France where I'm posting from my mobile, (phone and home!) for the first time....I almost feel like a roving reporter!


The French are at the polls today and business appeared to be brisk at the village mairie where the locals go to cast their vote.  After last week's TV debate, the opinion polls suggest Macron has it in the bag, but we know how wrong they can sometimes be!  We'll find out soon enough.


I left the UK last week with a chest infection and since my arrival here have been struck for the first time ever with conjunctivitis.  What a revolting thing that is!  To say that I'm not feeling (or looking) my best would be an understatement.  I've also just discovered that I'm out of gaz and as everything closes on a Sunday at midday, there'll be no hot water or cooking for me later.

I've friends joining me shortly for an apèro....who needs gas anyway?


Santé !
