I've never done this, so new experience for me, blogged that is. I dont think I really know what a blog is, a way to get something off your chest, an open diary? no doubt some one will explain! I think the later for me, so many people want to know what we are doing, this is , perhaps, a good way to talk to you all at once, as time is of the essence!
A little background? I am English, been in France 10 years, he is French , we have been together 4 years , magic! Dont expect it at my age but it is! So we met at Marmand station and four years on are still happy bunnies. In those four years we seem to have lived as much as some people who are together for twenty! There were the obvious ups and downs with famillies on both sides, kids mainly, although they are all adults(way over 30), but problems with health for our parents culminating in the loss of his parents 3 years ago, 6 weeks apart. Two years ago life got tough and all on the same day OH was diagnosed with throat cancer, my sister with terminal cancer and our 3 year old Belgian shepherd with hepatitis...................not the best day ever! So 2012 was rubbish, 2013 was rubbish! OH is really well now, but my sister died last June, (same day as the dog), we could n't bury her for a month as my bro in law was in hospital being operated on for colon cancer.........Ho Hum!
Before he was sick OH had idea to buy a house in Spain, and hunted on the internet, then it was portugal, we looked at Bulgaria, then the whole thing was forgotten because everyone was sick! Earlier this year he found some of the papers he had printed off, it was raining and he had decided to clean his office(!). So he launched himself into the search again, I was trying to iron and every two minutes it was3Come and look at this" aaaaargh! One was pretty good and cheap cheap. So phone call to estate agent, who speaks English and French, and two weeks, two trips there and back in the camper with all the dogs, it was ours! That was the begining of April, it is now the end of May and the boxes proliferate everywhere, the dust moves from corner to corner, the dogs are confused and the cats are hiding in the boxes.................we move in two weeks!!!!! What are we doing at our age, starting a new adventure like this? we should be playing golf and knitting..........gentling down into tranquillity, oh how I long for tranquillity, well maybe next year??????? So I am off to hoover up the balls of dog hair and clear away the dust so ican gett the next load of boxes filled.
If anyone has any ideas how to move 5 cats 1200K without loosing them or going insane pleas let me know..........!!!
