Arriving at No1…..French France………….

Arriving at No1 French France.

The last time I left you, I told you about the van, and packing one or two items for our new home in France…….

Read about it here………………………

This mid life crisis, of ours, wasn’t at all for the fainthearted, as we packed our own bags and got on the plane in August of this year…….

We had completed on the sale of the house only two days before the van left, and we got on the plane!

We had no proof of purchase………….no keys to get in………………..and we had our fingers crossed that the van would meet us at the house, along with the Estate agent.

As we landed in France I felt sick with worry……………………. We had seen this house twice……………

We didn’t know if the toilet flushed?………..If the electricity worked?………Would we have hot water?…….

I think we were quite mad…….

We got to the village and waited at our rendezvous………………….”The cafe”

“It will all be fine………..” was our motto…………..and indeed it was………………..

First to arrive, was Claire our French France Estate Agent……………

Then just as Mr Busy Bee got the coffee’s in…………. the furniture van arrived!!

We all had chocolate croissants……..(Well it would have been rude not to.)

Then Claire gave us the keys, and we let ourselves in to our new home in the traditional way…………….

Poor Mr Busy Bee’s back!!!!!!

Everything was fine at No1…………….

It all worked. I have never been so relieved to see a toilet flush and a light switch on!!

Of course there is lots to do………..I would describe it as a small mountain to climb………….

But it’s nothing we haven’t done before…..(Except it’s all in French……..and I don’t speak French)………

It will all be fine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But now time to celebrate…………..

Our adventure is just beginning………………
