Renovation Project - We're back online again!
Many apologies, we have been so busy over the last few weeks the
blog has been a little bit neglected, we did think once the house was
finished we would have loads of time to ourselves but to be honest we
now seem to be working as much as ever!
I don't know where to begin with what we have been up to, but I'll
have a go.
The first big thing was the dentist, not a nice experience but
better than we are used too, e.g. I survived it and didn’t need
hospital treatment (always a bonus).
The dentist we have found is in a big town only 10 km away and the
dentist speaks fantastic English, I have to explain about my reaction
to adrenaline, and to be honest he seemed a little bit excited, he
has heard of this allergy, but in 9 years has never met anybody with
it. I have to remind him on every visit and he has said he will order
some different anaesthetic just for me.
John has to have 3 visits in total and 3 teeth removed, he has had
a problem for the last year and the x-rays have said it was a back
tooth on either side of his jaw, the dentist thought it was too much
to do in one visit, so it was split over 3 visits.
Our carte vitale has still not arrived, and the dentist said to
wait until the next visit before paying to give it chance to arrive.
I cannot believe how much business is done on trust here!
We have also registered with the doctor, John had about a million
blood tests (because of his age!) the health care in France seems to
be more focussed on prevention than cure.
We are also up and running with the estate agency now and have
started to go out and about viewing properties and doing the write
ups, I am really enjoying this aspect, what other job gives you the
opportunity to talk to people, write and have a look around loads of
houses? I think I have just found my dream job (not that I am nosy or
I am also looking at all different ways to advertise the B&B.
But that is another story for tomorrow, so it's good to be back and
if you are looking for a holiday make sure you click on the link
Because this week John is going to have to start working on the
rest of the house, we are finished and open but there is still our
floor that I want to change and our utility, a new roof on one of the
out buildings, a new garden and …..........
The list goes on, so John you have had a break now get to it!
