I missed a bit of quarterly excitement this week, due to general illness. The Ramassage des Encombrants means 'Collection of Bulky Stuff', and it's when people put out their big junk to be collected for the tip. Always worth a look, but perhaps these sneak previews show I didn't miss much this time...In the past I found my lovely garden shelf, now blue, in the week leading up to the ramassage.
I've also found a basket chair near to bins in a nearby town. But this was as interesting as it got this time:
I'm happy to say that the boys got back to school today, to find almost everyone else still off! Quite an epidemic amongst teachers and pupils... It hopefully means that there will be very little catching up to do. I made it to work too, but will have a VERY quiet weekend, whilst enjoying the beginning of Advent on Sunday. Hope to see you there!
