Clair Posted August 20, 2007 Share Posted August 20, 2007 and I'm not talking just about the weather...A really nice young couple has rented in the gite for a week.They got lost on the way here on Saturday, as some local roads had been closed longer than advertised to allow a car rally stage to take place and they did not arrive until 8:30.The weather has taken a turn for the worse: constant wind and rain since Sunday morning and daytime temp down to 10°.They have a 5 year-old and a 5 month-old baby who was taken ill on Sunday night.On the way back from the doctor's late this afternoon, the father lost the exhaust pipe on his car.His insurance has asked him to contact a garage 30km away.In the meantime, Mr Clair had left for work in the car and I was unable to collect the baby to bring her back to the house.They've just been dropped off by the garage tow-truck and are left without transport until their car is repaired.I just feel sorry for them...I have put the baby's washing through the dryer, suggested they lit a fire, given them a bottle of wine and told them I'd drive them to the garage as soon as their car is ready...
