This is our first post on the forum since we bought our lovely little 200 year old cottage near Huelgoat where we hope to spend 49.999% of our time! Moving in was easy as we also bought all the furniture and most of the other contents from the previous owner. As the décor was very much to our liking, it was just a question of unpacking our clothes, making the bed and opening a bottle or two!
We took possession on 30th June and have so far spent about 8 weeks in situ as we have commitments back in the UK, so our proposed 49.999% will probably be missed in our first year. I have some work commitments back here in Dorset and Julie (our very much better half) is Chairman of the Purbeck U3A (University of the Third Age) which is very demanding of her time.
We could do with a little advice from members local to our area as we wish to change our volets which were designed by the previous owners of the cottage and are heavy and not user friendly. Has anyone experience of having volets persiennes fitted and can recommend suppliers and or fitters?
Also, we need to buy more logs for our wood burner (we are novices in using this device) so could anyone recommend suppliers who will deliver? Would a trailer be advisable so that we collect?
As a final paragraph to this post, as England has been knocked out of the Rugby World Cup, do you reckon we should be supporting France?
