Christmas Eve miracles.




The supermarket opens at 6.30 am. Unheard of for France. ' The font ' suggests we go early to avoid the crowds. Seems we aren't the only people who think like that .  Despite the endless line of cars looking for a space a  parking spot suddenly appears right by the front door. Christmas miracle #1.

Miracle #2 . All the checkouts are staffed and operational.  Ahead of us a large family paying for oysters. They don't pay by cheque. They don't want to discuss philosophy with the check-out lady. Their credit card works. They don't have to run back and buy a pint of milk. We've paid and are in the car all within twenty minutes .

Miracle #3. Neither British Airways nor the French air traffic controllers on strike over the holidays. Toulouse airport running to schedule.

Miracle #4. It's going to be a sunny 75 degrees today.

  3. Christmas miracles to be thankful for.
    We have one supermarket here that opens at 6.30am to serve breakfast. It is very popular with those who are late for work.
    Wishing you and the Font and all your family a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
