Heartwarming

overcast

I have heating, yay! My appartment is all nice and toasty. The radiators kinda leak a bit but the plummer, Monsieur Papin, gonna pay me a visit some time.

Also looks like this electricity bill was just an estimation and that I might not have to pay the whole lot...fingers crossed I might be able to eat this month yet! ha ha!

Watched High School Musical last night which was hilarious. Would have loved that flim when I was younger (Ok, I love it now!). Also ate popcorn and icecream and belgian chocolate, because the fajitas, waffles and hot chocolates of the day had just not satisified us. Oh dear...I had been a bit better last week though...I blame Rachel and the others! We also watched La Doublure, a classic French comedy and I'd highly recommend it.

Went out for a wander this morning, it's armisitice day here too and they do the 2 minute silence and apparently there was a procession somewhere in town. We didn't see much of it, and were very surprised to see the market all set up on a Sunday morning but we heard the bells and at the train station (just put Rachel on her train home) there was a massive bouquet laid in honour of the 10 or so Perigordian railwaymen who had died due to the war. My landlord came round following the ceremony and I was kind of surprised to hear they'd been drinking champagne...maybe it's more of a celebration here?

Excited to get my weekly email from Matt this morning, and also that I'll be home and with Joe and my family (18 year old baby brother!!!) a week today, yay yay yay! Kinda weird thing to get the nominations for this year's JCR commitee (University thing)...so many names I don't know.

Has turned a bit grey here...methinks it's time those Christmas lights were turned on. I got really excited to see a big marquee put up in the middle of the old ville thinking it may be a Christmas market, but no it's a foie gras market.

You should all check out this website, the lovely teacher gave me the link and it is muchos fun (and educational!):
