Well the strikes are just about over it seems...I think they just dwindled out in the end as more and more workers came back (having given up a quarter of their month's wages) however there are more planned for 20th December time if they don't get want they want in the next couple of weeks.
Very grey here today.
Have had a lovely weekend. On Friday we had a Thanksgiving meal with the American assistants which was a really good night. Chicken, homemade stuffing, gravy, mashed potato, salad, brocolli salad, bread washed down with some wine and followed by pumpkin pie and chocolate rice-krispie thingys...mmmmmm..... We listened to cheesy music, learnt the story of Thanksgiving from lovely Molly and played silly games taught to us by Lynn! All gooooood. Rachel hung around yesterday and we had a nice walk along the river, watched Le diner des Cons (pretty funny, although I preferred Le Placard and La Doublure), then we met up with all the other assistants again. All very jolly. Need to get some more French into my life this week I think...I might as well have been in England this week, need some more Frenchy stuff to write about on here. I really think I've had delayed culture shock or something...this last week I've really just been in such a funny mood.
Yucky grey overcast weather today
