This time last week, we were walking along the Avenue Daumesnil, hearing about France losing to Tonga and England narrowly beating Scotland, to set up this weekend's quarter final. The sun was shining and it was hot.
Now, we are back home and the rain is teeming down outside, when a few minutes ago we had bright sunshine. A click onto the Guardian website tells us that France have beaten England 19-12 to get their revenge for 2003 and 2007. Well, at least Wales beat Oirland.
How things change!
Anyway, here are some nice memories from the Brocante market at Place Daumesnil.
