Well what has been happening in our part of the world, unfortunately we appear to have a delay – we didn’t have our import permit for Siena or Wallis and it means that it looks like we will have to delay the transporting of them. At the moment we are still trying to decide if I will travel on our original date and Pat will come later or if we both wait and come later. It is frustrating as the delay was caused by a breakdown in communication.
So what has been happening here – we sold the car, and have been trying to catch up with various people to say goodbye. We’ve had one lunch so far, an afternoon tea and tomorrow we have both! Thankfully one of my friends has been incredibly generous and has lent us her car to use while we are still here – she is also dropping us off at the train station when we know when we are going.
I will admit I did have to buy another bigger suitcase – it appears I have been buying various items (and been given a few) over the past 12 months so what 12 months ago filled one suitcase now takes up two!
I have started to put in job applications; I had forgotten how long each application takes. It is difficult.
Today we did got notice that the import permit has been granted so hopefully we can travel when we originally planned. We’re just waiting to hear if that is possible.
For now, à bientôt, from our wonderful part of France – Delia
