November 10th 2008

Doughnut-ella next door came rushing out of the apartment and spent ten minutes screaming at me on the landing about what a bad neighbour I am, how noisy we are and rude etc etc etc. Standing next to me waving finger in my face...telling me she is going to call the police about me!She is mental, I told her so, also told her everybody in the block hates her, (well I know of at least three people who do) that I won't ever speak to her again until she can talk in a rational manner and finished off with DROP DEAD as I slammed the door in her face! The girls were doubled up with laughter behind the front door and I didn;t know whether to laugh or cry.
As we left she was on her balcony shouting into her mobile at the Garde de poste! Instead of stock cubes next time I'm asking Sarah to bring me a large bottle of ketamine!
Tomorrow is Armistice Day and it is a bank holiday in France. What a great idea, if there ever was a good reason for a bank holiday, this is it. In the village, they have a church service followed by a procession to the graveyard where all the local children release balloons in memory of the dead. Issy is keen to do it so we are going to go along, and as we haven't found anywhere to buy poppies here, it's one way of marking the day. It has made her ask questions about the past that she would never have done normally.

I came by way of your BIL, Gaz and I have enjoyed reading several of your past entries here. I truly envy what you have done and look forward to reading more in the future!

Some of the stories involving your daughters remind me of when my parents moved to Spain for a year and I was thrown into a new culture and language.

Your neighbor sounds like the wicked witch, but she certainly makes for humorous writing material!

Your BIL pointed me in your direction. I have to say your neighbor most certainly doesn't sound...sane. I think I might of had the same reaction you did. I think your daughter finding interest in what the day stands for is an opening for sharing the history. I promise to come back by your way again. (Hugs)Indigo
