A failed shopping trip

News from Monaco

Saturday, and Mr maBoum suggested taking the shopping trolley to Marche U to stock up on bottles of Spitfire. Alas, there was a queue stretching along the pavement, not as closely packed as the one I walked away from on Monday. But still, we turned around and came home.

Here's today's roundup of the headlines.
