Sorry we have been a little quite on the blog front this week, its been a busy week for both of us.
We have been in a bit of a no mans land this week, as we are having a survey done on the French house, it was actually done on Friday but we have to wait for the report on Tuesday so feel a bit apprehensive and nervous.
As I mentioned in earlier posts they don’t really do surveys in France, they check for Termites, Asbestos and a few other things but thats about it. There attitude is if the house has been around for a long time and its still standing then its ok. But being british we have to do things by the book old chap. Hmmm I think I’m with the French, I did give the house a once over and prodded and poked a few things and all seemed to be fine; the odd damp patch and a few crumbling floor boards, but then it it over 100 years old.
We shall see i may be proved wrong and the survey may show up lots of bad things…. god i hope not.
We have also started to pack the house up, working through all the stuff we don’t use, a lot of people have said to us dosnt it feel sad and unsettling. I think it did for about 30 seconds but then I just felt excitement, as much as i love all my nick nacks there i also love a good clear out. The whole process is very liberating and i love rediscovering things i haven’t seen for ages and deciding if they will stay with us or be sent to another home.
Just thinking of all the new things waiting to be discovered in all those fabulous French markets make me go all quivery yehhhh.
Kevs in the shed clearing out all the clutter and relishing all the organising he’s doing, I’m in the office flicking through cards, labels & nick nacks heaven.
Right must dash the boys are coming over for drinks, a takeaway and a slushy movie so must dish up some nibbles.
Heres something for the weekend
