Went to local water board today about the huge bill following the water leak. They wanted original of bill from plumber and a letter from me. The woman in the office wrote the letter for me and said she had cancelled the bill. I should received a new bill more in line with my usual payments. She also told me that they have no problem with water, plenty under the ground, although some areas are suffering. She said I can carry on watering the garden. Phew!
I did the weekly shop in the supermarket there, instead of Leclerc near Périgueux. Have just read in local paper that the farmers are demonstrating about milk and meat prices and have dumped a load of manure at the entrance to the motorway and parked a load of tractors in the Leclerc carpark - so I escaped that. Another phew!
