It’s Red Bull time again

For the third year in a row, the Red Bull cliff diving event will be held on Saturday in La Rochelle. The divers will dive from the top of the St Nicolas Tower. Both Rob and Olivier have extra hours, being around while everything is set up in the evening after the tourists have left. Rob got home at 2 the other morning. We’re still tired! No exclusive pics I’m afraid, everything is strictly controlled and copywrite.

Dom and J-M came for the weekend. Dom has had her hair cut to celebrate the end of her master’s years. She looks like Meg Ryan in ‘You’ve got mail’, especially when she runs around the house in her jim-jams. In September she starts her Doctorate, she’s managed to sort out her funding without too much trouble (but a lot of stress). We had a great time. We went to a brocante (boot sale/ garage sale) and found some interesting bargains.

Yes, I now have my very own laptop and it has a web cam (don’t they all?) so I might do a vlog one of these fine days. Just have to wait until there is no one at home…

Yay for new webcammed (yes they all have them now) laptop!

Dru Marland said...

and yay for brocantes! -Car boot sales are nasty, skanky affairs by comparison.

Lucky you to see the eclipse, though we at least had the full english summer evening experience. (I took down the blog post because I've entered the poem to a comp, and it mustn't be online...)

Well done to your Dom for all her hard work. I look forward to the vlog!

Don said...

Glad you are back in action! Congrats on all that is happening good on your side, for you and yours!

Véronique: I now have to pluck up courage to sit in front of it and talk.

Dru: I think that part of it is that we live in a well off area, so people have 'tasteful' junk.

Doris: Don't hold your breath!

Don: thanks, it's good to have a routine again.
