I've just been on the phone to my long suffering other half, who has been told of "The Whole Sorry Affair" or at least the bits that concern me. Of course this turned out to be a very long phone call with emails being read to him in their entirety. His opinion is that I have every right to be upset over some of the things that have been said, that the excuses that are being put forward for the other person's behaviour is a load of bullshit, that I am right in thinking that said other person is playing for sympathy and is generally being selfish, arrogant and rude, and that no I am not over-reacting.
Anyway to cheer me up he pointed me to something.
Go to Google and search for french military victories. Click on the button that says I'm feeling lucky and see what comes up.
It made me smile for all of 2 seconds, which is an achievement considering my mood.
