365 Days 2009 - Day 149 - May 29 - Househunting: Waiting for a bus so I could go see a house on the top of the hill overlooking Agen. Unfortunately, by he time I got there the agent had realised that the house had been signed for already. And it was an amazing house, dammit. But, on the other hand, it was a nice walk. In the evening, I managed to attend the two biggest community events for Le Passage for the evening: One was a gallery opening for my landlord, the other was a community shared meal in the cul-de-sac near our friend’s house. I was mainly invited to the latter as an Australian who could entertain the Australian business guest (Bruce wasn’t back from his business trip until later that evening). But that worked out alright - turns out the guy had worked for the people I work for. So Adelaide. I attended the evening events in a pretty little skirt and heels, riding my pushbike between them. It was so much fun to hop on my bike at the end of the 25 degree evening, all dressed up, a little tipsy, with no lights on my bike, no helmet and less than 1km to travel in backstreets. It feels like freedom and smells like summer.
365 Days 2009 - Day 150 - May 30 - Petite Piscine: I only took 150 pics before I got this one. This was my great idea for the day. The older sibling was invited to go for a swim and a neighbour’s house. The younger sibling was to be babysat by me for a while. She needed to go for a swim too, so I got her to choose her petite piscine from the numerous buckets available.
365 Days 2009 - Day 151 - May 31 - Wandering with Rob: Crap photo, but this was one of the only people shots for the day. Bruce, Rob and I wandered about Agen all day taking in the sights and chilling.
365 Days 2009 - Day 152 - June 01 - Recovering: Public holiday in France. After spending the week away and the weekend entertaining Australians (and working) Bruce was ready for a big splat. I think I took this just before the rest of us jumped in the pool. Bruce stayed in front of the computer for some reason.. which I think defeats the whole purpose of a public holiday.
365 Days 2009 - Day 153 - June 02 - Bruce’s birthday: So, how many times do you think Bruce has been able to eat breakfast outside on his birthday? There had to be a photo. Also, we’d brought the laptop and headphones out to call Australia, so it made for a much more interesting photo. Silly, but memorable. :)
365 Days 2009 - Day 144 - May 24 - Eiffel Tower: I’m glad Jason took this photo, because it’s the only photo with both Bruce and I in it for the whole trip.. in fact, for ages. And duh, we saw the Eiffel Tower while we were in Paris. Jason was over it after seeing it so many times, but he kindly did the tour-guide thing and showed us around the country we now live in. Now let that break your brain a while.
365 Days 2009 - Day 139 - May 19 - Walking around Perpignan: Bruce was working in Perpignan, so I took the morning to bus into the centre of town, walk around and take photos. Then we had an awesome lunch and I spent the afternoon holed up in a hotel room working.
