Once again I am reminded that one should never take things for granted.
I am often asked what I miss most about the U.S., with the asker usually expecting me to mouth the clichés of peanut butter (I get wonderful, natural peanut butter) or sour cream (I get crème fraîche, fromage frais and fromage blanc…. Need I say more?).
Monday, when it was finally…. Finally, time to move some furniture into our 'den' I wrenched my back. Not that mon mari needed my puny help to move the furniture around…. It was all the boxes and other crap I was meant to do.
