Well the weekend is over and what a glorious one it was too. I spent Saturday mostly in the driving seat as the credit crunch and recession finally took hold and forced me to jump on a ferry to Calais (£30) and pop to Tesco, Carifour and Cheers and stock up on alcohol.
Yes, together the better half and I spent about £100, but we saved about £150 when you look at the quantity we bought and neither of us were close to the personal limits either. True I spent my money in the French economy, but if the Treasury will insist on slapping so much tax on a bottle of Merlot then sod'em.
Vive la France!
