11th October 2016
It was a very bad idea to set up this blog in August whilst in the throes of moving house and finding somewhere else to live! I originally started writing this post in September but didn’t publish it. Now I’m going to try to catch up.
Moving from France back to the UK was relatively straightforward but with many niggling little issues to sort out all at the same time.
Once back I have sold my French car – for a pathetic price – bought a UK reg car, found somewhere else to live and gone through all of the fiddly official things such as insurances, road tax, council tax, changing names on utility accounts, setting up phone and broadband and buying things to replace what I left behind.
A sofa and chairs couldn’t be delivered till the end of November and a bed end of October so I bought a fold-up guest bed and am using it half folded during the day to serve as a temporary sofa. Although I have the keys to the new place from the 14th October the removal men aren’t coming till the day after my bed is delivered on the 23rd so garden chairs are in use in the meantime. It’s going to be a busy few days.
Washing machine, dishwasher and fridge-freezer deliveries on Thursday, bed on Friday and removals delivery on Saturday.
I might be gone some time……
