Buried

Buried under paperwork - when I should be out in this lovely "spring" day raking my garden.  But it had to be done.  What with the temping AND the real estate, everything has been going to the dogs.  Anyway I feel much better now, I always do when it feels slightly like I am in control.  Just the taxes to do now, ugh!!

Well the temp job comes to an end next Friday and not a moment too soon as far as I am concerned.  Itching to get back to my old life, of coffee with friends when I feel like it, out to lunch if someone invites me.....er I mean real estate of course. He he   No really, I have been talking to colleagues and we all feel things are on the turn, people feeling a little more positive around here and the sales board in the office is very full, I want some of that!

On the France front, eldest son is almost there. Yesterday, after being stuck in Geneva for a couple of days waiting for the French railmen (sorry is that sexist) to return to work after striking, he managed to get to La Souterraine.  I had mentioned in conversation that this town was "fairly" close to the house so when he heard it called out, he jumped off.  As it turned out he should have stayed on until Limoges as public transport in our part of rural France seems to be fairly non-existent and there is really no way to get to our village without a car.  Being a bit of a hippie, eldest son doesn't have a "valid" credit card so has to wait for his girlfriend to meet up with him in Limoges to rent a car.  What would these guys do without us women!?!

Anyway I chatted to him this morning and he was heading on to Limoges to wait for his girlfriend and to find an internet cafe, something else which is thin on the ground around there.  Being a good mum I also told him where the Irish bar in Limoges is located.  I wonder where he is right now!>!>

So now we are waiting for an update, once they have picked up the rental car and made their way to the house. I will be very interested to hear what they have to say as you can imagine.  I hope it is not too much of a disappointment.  Our Dutch friends are standing by to hold their hands if they are prepared to stick around for a while and help us get some work done.  Needless to say I am sick with envy that they are there and I am not.  Stand by for the next installment.

I hope the paperwork is dealt with soon. Your son has chosen a great time to be here, the weather is glorious and the blossom is coming out everywhere. It won't be long till you're here again.

I can't think of a better time to be in France than right now, but then again, any time is a good time. It sounds like you have the kind of son who will manage just fine and I think he will enjoy his stay in your house there.

You could be out raking your garden - we're getting 20cm of snow. hmmmmmm - what's wrong with this picture?

I bet anything your son is going to love the place and want to hang around and help. I'd be jealous too!

I hope you have burrowed out from under the paperwork by now.
Hope your son LOVES the house & France. You will be there before too long!
