Day Seven

So today we had a well earned day off, didn’t even wake until way after 10am bliss.
The weather was pleasantly nice today and the sun made an appearance late afternoon and to celebrate we partook of a bottle of rosé sat in the Place Wilson watching the world go by and soaking up a few warm rays.
But before that Kev took us on a walking tour of Toulouse city centre and I have to say it’s a really lovely city, lots to see and explore I got particularly excited when we found a huge Brocante market and quickly found a few bargains. Lunch was taken sat on plastic chairs in a rough and ready barbecue stall but I have to say the food was amazing all cooked to order and very fresh yummy.
After our rosé/people-watching hour we retired for a well earned siesta and then went for even more food and drink and found a fabulous restaurant only steps away from the hotel Le Bon Vivre
The decor was up cycled French Brocante, the atmosphere was bustling, all French people we are the only British and the food was fantastic, I highly recommend it.
Now we are sat in a very comfy bed with a bottle of the local red, I’m writing the blog and Kev is busy looking for a Mr Bricolage near to Fayssac as he wants to buy a tape measure before we view the house again in the morning.
We are heading off early for Fayssac in order to measure up as in France they do not provide plans, and work out roughly what we would like to do to the place in order to work out how much we think we will have to spend on renovations.
Once this is done we can decide what offer we would like to put in for the house.
The system in France is quite a bit different from the UK, the agent works for you not the seller,so we have a huge list of questions for her to ask the owners.
We have decided to take the 6pm flight home so we have more time at Fayssac but its full so will hope for jump seats or we will have to stay over and get the first flight out on Tuesday, luckily I’m working near Heathrow on Tuesday so can go straight to work from there if need be.
Right off to count Zzzs now we are both very tired very contented and excited.
Argh The Good Life

Night night all sleep well.
