Re: I smiled because...

...I turned the page on our calendar and saw that we're 'booked out' in October. YAY! Plenty of guetsts to feed on the weekends and even during the week a people will pop by for a meal at ours!

Am well happy about that!

Re: I smiled because...

Because I was just about to start cutting my hedge, when a neighbour who was walking by, who I've never interacted with, asked me if I'd like a tip on how to do it. I said sure, but I didn't really get what he meant. So he asked if he could show me. He came into our garden, and then proceeded to cut the hedge! I was expecting a quick demo - but he cut half the hedge, leaving just one side for us to do, and one smaller hedge.

He was very fast and did a better job than I could. I think he must be a retired gardener or something.

So very kind of him!

Re: I smiled because...

Lovely day yesterday working in garden- and today turned out to be just as nice, despite weather forecast. Massive foraging walk up on top of t'mountain- fab views with the tops of Mont d'Or and Chasseron white. Deer, brown squirrels, crested tits, and my firs ever woodcock. And 2 big baskets of mushrooms again.

Re: I smiled because...

I was reading papers from back home and they referred to The Guardian as British left wing journalism.

Which is what it is. Why is that smile-worthy?

Re: I smiled because...

Because the guys at the Customs were really nice- asked if I had anything to declare, I said only the wild mushrooms I picked. Asked to go to the side so they could peruse over my two baskets full to the brim.


Mind you, we were stopped a couple of months ago at the border- explained we had bought 2 cases of wine in Salgesh, Valais, but travelled back by shortesd route via France. Different car, plates, and customs' officers. Again, 'to the side please' - to find one of them was from Salgesh and wanted to see what we had bought. Great choice, he said, enjoy

Maybe it is ultra-left wing?

I think it was meant that way, otherwise it wouldn't be even mentioned, never used to be mentioned. It was funny.

Re: I smiled because...

I bought a new dishwasher in August, but it has a problem backfilling - although it has been correctly installed. The supplier contacted me yesterday that due to the problems, they'll just refund me the price. I can dispose of the dishwasher as I feel fit.

I'm going to try to fix it myself.

Re: I smiled because...

Because during the fall break I am studying more than during normal times.

And because of the French verbal tenses.
