So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu!

Adieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu!

Off to France later ... no worries about the super-slow French dial-up Internet, because this year there is no Internet. Yep, that's right no Internet! Did you feel that? That was the hair on the back of my neck standing straight up!! A whole month - with no Internet. Can you imagine what that feels like anymore? Do you remember? How did we cope? I'm sure *crosses fingers* that the weather will make up for it - and I shall get on to France Telecom for the APs to demand* information on when service will be resumed!

So, until late August - have fun, take care, be good :o)

* Anyone out there who knows anything about French bureaucracy knows that this demand will be ignored and some little despot in the Telecom office will simply look down his beaky nose at me and shrug in a way that only Gallic despots can!

I went without the Internet for several hours yesterday [shudders] how awful!

Hope you have a great time, I hear the weather is wonderful, on account of the UK currently catching all of France's rain :-)

Dear Mr Gallic Despot,
I am writing on behalf of all the regular visitors to Chez Le Lauet, and ask, no implore.... no BEG for you to not look down your beaky nose at her request to instate broad band connection to the district in which she is staying.

Please please please, we will love you for ever and ever and ever

love from
Fizzy

A combination of wine and enjoyable gallic cooking will, no doubt, compensate for a blip in the connectivity.

Bon vacances!
