So I'm back in France and normal blogging service is about to be resumed. Downstairs, Biff is drying his paws, lying on top of the radiator in le petit salon, from where he likes to monitor the activities of our neighbours. I am in front of my ordinateur, trying to catch up with emails. This afternoon I must unpack the car (yes I bought a lot of stuff in London but I like to think I was helping the economy) and this evening Anita and Rob are coming over for spag bog. Yes, it's good to be back.
