Built on a former quarry in the countryside, this architect home with a contemporary feel was owned by Pierre Boulez, famous composer and conductor and conveys this aspect through the white concrete forming the gesture of a leader directing an orchestra without a wand. The concrete blends perfectly with the vertical stones found on site that are assembled into specific modules. Light seeps between volumes. Approximately 230m² spread over four levels as well as a guest house and a garage, the ensemble set on 3,7 ha. Numerous terraces including one with exceptional panoramic views on the last floor. 1h from the TGV train station in Aix en Provence.
In my little patch of Sussex we have magpies, collared doves and woodpigeons and numerous small brown birds (inlcuding an, ahem, active group of dunnocks) all living together quite happily. But then that's the tolerance and diversity of Brighton for you.
Have had my right ear blocked up with wax to the extent of affecting my hearing to quite a considerable extent. Made social things all the more effortful, if not more than usually pointless. So last week I obtained some drops to put in it (/them) which has made things better. Might try olive oil since the drops have ran out. I thought I'd get an appointment to syringe the ear -a straightforward procedure- quite quickly, but today discovered that I'll have to wait almost three weeks for it.
As a periodic sufferer of this myself, i've always used (on Doctor's recommendation) sodium bicarbonate, which has always worked very quickly indeed, usually within just a few hours. My doc favours this approach over oils, & the results certainly seem to justify it. It's also nice & cheap: sodium bicarbonate is 99p from my local pharmacist - the doc warned me (rightly) that you may need to specifically ask for it, as they don't usually have it out on the shelves.
Possibly the ultimate radio 3 nightmare- Breakfast went on all night. ]
