Ian managed to ration his trips to DIY shops to one while we were away. We went to Leroy Merlin, the French equivalent of a B&Q crossed with Homebase. It was pretty unimpressive and we didn't buy anything (although did see a bath we liked). The most sureal part of the experience was as we were wandering around with the piped music playing in the background, Lily Allen's 'F*ck you' blasted out in the uncensored version. If you don't know the lyrics you can see them here. It is is not the best song ever written but I did smile when I saw all the shoppers singing along innocently.
