I hope everyone is recovering from all of the holiday celebrations. We had a quiet time but still managed to eat and drink too much. We had a lot of fog too; I know we live near the sea, but it’s quite rare here normally.
Dom came home, she’s still enjoying life in Poitiers. She managed to catch up with her friends and study for the after Christmas exams. She found a carrot cake recipe in a recipe book I gave her so she made it for New Years Eve, it was delicious.
Two Phone stories; for a couple of years I’ve been using Olivier’s old phone, but it used to play up after I spilt wine on it. Just before I started exam supervising before Christmas it died on me. Dom was having trouble with her phone so she bought herself a new one. She told me her old one didn’t work but I could try it if I wanted to. It works perfectly, so now I can take pics and make films (when I work out what to do) as well as phone here and there.
Olivier had his phone stolen at a New Years party (You know how it is; ‘friends’ of ‘friends’ turn up and the fun starts). The thief had already karma-ed himself/herself because the screen was cracked. The phone had a lock as well as a pin number so it wouldn’t have been much use at all. He’s now got a new phone and has learnt what a pain phone shops are when they are very busy.
I expect Rob to invent a reason to have a new phone next…
