"Tout reprit son calme."

Les invités sont partis. C'était génial de les avoir avec nous. L'équipe MPEF est une équipe de rêve ! Mais c'est bien aussi de retrouver le rythme normal de la vie de famille


It's been great to have lots of people coming and going over the last month - really since the day we got back from Britain. But now it's good to get the normal rhythm of family life going.


However it is a tiring rhythm !


Gwilym starts lycée Tuesday to Friday at 8h15, and his day normally goes in till 17h20. His journey to school take almost an hour by bus so he leaves the house at 7am and gets back and about 18h20.


He has Wednesday afternoon off. There was the possibility of staying at school and joining a football team but he decided that he needs that afternoon off. I don't blame him ! he also starts at 10h20 on Mondays, which is a blessing.


Catrin's collège is not far away and she only starts at 8am once a week (Friday).


Meanwhile activities are starting up gradually. I started back doing my weekly lunch-time stint at the collège today. The guys group will start again soon. I'm meeting up with one of the students and hoping to set things up with some others soon, too. FAC meetings won't start till October, but I'm preaching twice on Sunday, French am and English pm. Pat has started back with the French women's group and she's talking to folks about the English women's group.
