Outrageous Fortune

I didn't walk much on Saturday because I spent all afternoon wrestling with one of the tax forms we have to complete each year - the Impot sur la Fortune, or wealth tax. Whether you regard yourself as wealthy or not, you have to list all your assets, wherever they are in the world, and value them. Several hours work, at the end of which you send them your self-assessment, with a cheque. Our cheque was for just over 4 Euros.
