Some things in life are worth waiting for and I'm not referring to the resumption of our blog, here! The object in question has eluded us for two and a half years now but yesterday our patience paid off.
What, you may ask, is that object? None other than our 'carte d'accès en déchèterie'!
Regular readers of our blog may recall the time and trouble we've invested in to trying to obtain this carte d'accès. Three, maybe four, applications, twice as many philosophical shrugs from Monsieur le déchèterie and an unproductive trip to the Mairie in Richelieu, but finally it has arrived!
No longer will we have to announce "nous n'avons pas reçus notre permis" as the very friendly and long suffering Monsieur comes eagerly to greet us, armed with his scanner.
We are also now privy to an eloquently written list of rules and regulations for the use of said déchèterie...
So at last we're official and desperately trying to find something to tip....
What has happened we wondered to finally expedite this correspondence??
We can only assume it is our Christmas present from Monsieur le déchèterie as it was dated 24th December!
