And she's back!!

But trying hard not to wish she was you know where.  I did my first real estate deal in a while last night and I am feeling really chuffed!!  This will lead to a new listing next week so I am getting my feet nicely wet again.  My last day of temping somehow spilled over into this week, yesterday was a little stressful, having to work full time and prepare for the offer but all went well and my clients seem very happy. I have been busy today with the paperwork and organising inspections for tomorrow.  It is a country property (Gill) and so of course we need to check on the septic and well as well as the house, so a little more involved.  Oh and the temp job is done and dusted.

Son and girlfriend had a good result today.  They have been driving here and there through the narrow lanes of rural France looking for a suitable vehicle to purchase for us. Ideally we were looking for a small van, but had been unsuccessful so it seemed we were going to have to settle for a people carrier or estate car, but today they struck gold and we are now, apparently, the proud owners of an electric blue Renault Kangoo and they pick it up on Saturday.  He now has to organise the insurance and teach his girlfriend to drive a stick shift so that they can both drive a vehicle and get the rental car back.
I guess it looks something like this but without the strange roof ornament.

When I spoke to them this afternoon, they were feeling "tres heureux" with themselves having had such a productive day, sitting out in the field, in the weak spring sunshine with a beer, church bells tolling in the background.  Doesn't that sound perfect.

Congratulations on the real estate deal. Making one is quite good in today's market.

And I raise a toast to the new car, that you may travel many kilometers in her on your windy French rural roads.

Brilliant you got that deal. Congratulations.

I think your son is trying to make you jealous.

Super little van, very useful for carrying everything. I'm sure you are aware that all documents, ie licence and 'carte gris' must be carried at all times while driving. The gendarmes love to hand out fines!
