Back from a 3 day jaunt to the new house to take essential bedding, table, chairs, fridge, crocks and paint so we can go and spend 10 days painting rooms before the furniture arrives. Two of the bedrooms have painted blue, white and orange stripes! One day to go down, another to come back and the one in the middle to clean, clean, clean. Exhausting but satisfying.
Checked the teeny weeny solitary clem I found on our last visit and it has doubled in size thanks to being weeded and watered and pep talked. Very pleased with that.
Now to get on with the sorting and prepping and packing and getting rid of unwanted goodies and caring for treasures already potted up for the move. House needs a good clean too.........Didn't hear about the latest attack in France till on the road yesterday. Dreadful.
Amusing item on Belgian radio news tho. They're running a poster campaign to discourage people from littering along in lay-by and rest areas. It shows a pig with a gleeful face leaning out of a recognisable Fiat 500 to dump a bag of rubbish. The slogan asks people not to treat lay-bys like pig sties. Apparently Italians in general and Fiat in particular are up in arms at the insult so Belgium has had to apologise and all the posters will be modified to disguise the Fiat by the end of this week.
