We have had one more duck fatality, so I think we will have to keep them penned in for a bit, at least until the fox thinks there is no free lunch to be had around here. Neil wants to get a gun and shoot it, but after recent events in the UK I think gun ownership is a very bad idea!
We had our first french lesson with a new teacher last night - and came away with a very large tv for 20 euros! Neil, who normally could easily live without a tv, seems to have taken a sudden interest in viewing. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out it has something to do with the World cup football.
The lesson was followed by some very lovely rose wine, which is a very civilised way to go about learning. Our new teacher taught French in schools in the UK for some time, and she is really lovely.
Work on our house has come to a grinding halt while earning money becomes a priority for Neil. It is really difficult to get the balance right between progress here and the need to suppliment my income and Neil finds it frustrating as hell to be working elsewhere when there is so much he wants to do here.
My friend the fresian owner sent me these photos this morning so I thought I would share them with you
