Today we really shopped for Britain, stripping the shelves of Géant and Champion of bedding. The furniture was delivered to Mel’s garage, and we’re eating in before finishing wrapping the Christmas presents. Jules had taken Meg for a walk, and the kids have just texted to say they are in Paris at passport control. Hopefully their next stop will be the Metro, then dinner, then the train to Briancon . The only minor hiccup today was cold diesel in the tank, because we had to fill up in Turin yesterday!!! A breakdown truck helped us out, and added some paraffin to the tank. Oh, and we shopped again, electrical stuff this time, a very helpful guy in Géant sorted us out with a TV, DVD, and vacuum cleaner. .
