Not the wisest of moves .
Another chilly morning . The geraniums on the terrace looking less than pristine . Next year Angus will definitely remember not to plant them out until the 1st of May .
The first round of the French Presidential elections less than a week away . The billboards in the marketplace festooned with posters. None of them have been defaced . The possible exception being that for the far right candidate . Her poster has simply disappeared .
In the cafe all eyes turned to the early morning news broadcast . The King of Spain is in trouble. While the Spanish government has been implementing widespread spending cuts the King has been away in Botswana shooting elephants. A luxury holiday , combining private jets and slaughtering innocent animals , not the wisest of moves while hospital closures are being announced .
The waitress chats happily away to Wilf as she feeds him his half croissant . I ask her what happens to the other half . '' It's the barmans breakfast . But he never finishes it " . Cynics might wonder if he gets the chance .
A trip to the bakers then home to find Madame Bay hard at work . Two days in a row. She bustles past me . Her unmistakeable hyperactive mode . '' So many pillow cases . So many pillow cases ". Unsure how to reply Angus and Wilf close the door to the office . While Angus writes, Wilf sleeps.
