Happy Birthday Chicklet.
Lily Pilly asked "Busy I think I may have missed something, are you returning permanently to uk? I thought your family had just moved beside you in France?"
I have lived in France since 85, brought up my 4 children in France and have 9 grandchildren in France. Husband 1 wanted to live in France, I only went for him, but he died in 98. Met 2nd OH in France, he was widowed, moved to France because his wife wanted to. When I met him he was trying to sell his French house to move back to England but he moved in with me instead. He has sold his house now so we have bought a second home in Norfolk, which is where we want to be but I can't sell my French house as the children share it (French inheritance laws) and they don't want to sell it.
In the meantime, 2nd OH was renting a flat in Eastbourne from his DIL which is where most of his stuff is which we are moving to the cottage to Norfolk.
