  1. I have to say that I admire Paul Gray's courage in taking the blame for his department's failure, and wonder what Sir Ian Blair thinks of his action. But... how about a conspiracy theory... the "junior official " was in league with an "illegal immigrant" security guard, and the discs are now somewhere in Eastern Europe?

    Bravo Sweet 17, for being one (two) of the people one can rely on!!![;-)]

    Let's hope there are plenty of others  who will thus achieve full integration....


    I can go one further (as can TonyFDordgne) as we are both candidates for our municipal councils [;-)]


    Our Maire has asked if he can put my name on his liste, too.

  3. Sadly we've just lost our old cat Frisky (page 8 of this thread); sheer old age! We were away for a few days, and our cat-sitter found him on the terrace, where he loved to sleep.

  4. [quote user="TWINKLE"]Sorry - don't know where to put this  (I know someone will suggest somewhere[:)]) but I just had a thought after speaking to JK on the phone.  The only 'normal' Welsh person who has visited me in France is Missy[:-))][/quote]

    But, Twinks, isn't that one of the nicest things about us folks from west of Offa's D y k e; we don't pretend to be "normal"?

  5. We had to store for a short period, so rented a 20' container., which was the same capacity as the 7.5 ton GVW truck we hired. This took most of the contents of a two bedroom town house, including all white goods, two large sofas, two beds, dining table and chairs (packed flat), hundreds of books, my wife's clothes, and some of mine of course, (but no wardrobes), and the other detritus of life. It all fitted beautifully, but the ferry company's weighbridge at Newhaven said that we were 1.5 tons overweight!
