Yesterday’s outing must have taken a lot out of me….I have no energy today.
Sue helped us to set-up an appointment with a nurse for tomorrow morning (nurses make housecalls here!). Since Dr Leroy told me to see Dr Afriat in 3 weeks, I tried to make an appointment with him but his secretary didn’t answer the phone and I couldn’t make out enough words on her message to know when to call back….. guess I’ll just keep trying until I get through.
In the meantime, we’re enjoying the BBC…..“Sherlock Holmes” (a great new series set in contemporary England with a younger Holmes & Watson), “Serious Ocean” (a reality show about a group of teenagers on a sailboat voyage around South America), “Doc Martin” (a comedy-drama about a small town doctor who faints at the sight of blood), “The Great Outdoors” (a new comedy about an English walking club) and a multitude of shows on antiques and antiquing. We should be watching more French television to help build our communication skills but it’s comforting to hear something we can usually understand. I say usually because sometimes the English accents are beyond our comprehension. Our friend Ray told us he couldn’t understand the accents 30 miles from Liverpool!
We certainly didn’t move to France to watch television (or, rather, “the telly”) but, until my bones mend, it helps while away the hours and the days actually do pass rather quickly.
