When you greet someone here, there is invariably the ‘ça va’ question – the informal version of the ‘comment allez-vous’ one learnt in school. I have to keep reminding myself that my friends don’t really want to hear that ‘ça ne va pas de tout’ followed by a list of woes. They would far prefer to hear ‘Oui, ça va – et toi?’
The fact is that things are not brilliant, but at least I now have a lovely new GP, Maelle, with whom I discuss the sequence of my forthcoming medical interventions. This is a month when I will see shoulder and hip consultants, as well as possibly embark on another tooth implant!
But, no, I know you don’t really want to hear about my operations 🙂
