When I got my 12-25 railway card (which gives me usually 50% off of train fares), they also sent me a "S'miles" carte de fidelite. (Which is funny enough in itself being a play on two English words, neither of which are used in French and one of which doesn't even exist here in the land of kilometres). But anyway I use it when I buy train tickets and also in Monoprix where I do a lot of my food shopping (and buy other random stuff), although to be honest I don't bother getting it out of my purse everytime. I just checked my online account out of interest and it turns out I'm halfway to getting a FREE 2nd class train ticket (to pretty much anywhere it seems) which is wicked. Yay!
Have had a really nice afternoon. The sun is shining and theres a slight breeze and I've been outside for a good 4/5 hours and feel lovely and refreshed. So first off I went for lunch with Molly, Eddie and Cecile which was good and we had some good French chat goin' on. Then Molly and I met up with Susan and Tim who are two assistants at Nontron I hadn't seen in AGES AND AGES. Was cool to have a chat with them and we walked along the canal which I hadn't done before, was very nice and tranquille with pretty little allotments down there. Then we came back into town and sat outside a cafe with Lou, Lynn and Catherine for a bit and chatted and got some rays; all very pleasant.
