Good evening all, probably good morning for most by the time you read back. I am alive & well, but exhausted, just finished work.
I am now fully installed in my new house though, hurrah, and Charlie loves it too.
Have been working hours I didn't know existed and still managing ( and doing all the work at b&b). So, apologies for not checking in with you all, I think I did 6 trips from old house to new one yesterday, brought over all my books, spare washing machine & bed settee and my desk and rather embarrassing hoard of stationary, I do love it.
My new house is on a little village green sort of thing and all the neighbours have been watching my efforts with a mixture of amusement and concern. I got stuck in my hedge last week with a fridge/freezer on the pallet truck, couldn't go forward, couldn't go back, it's on a slight incline and I'd managed (embarrassingly) to roll in to the bush. The neighbours, thankfully, managed to rescue me and a 70 year old and a nearly 80 year old were kind enough to oiyk me out of the bush and get my rather large fridge freezer into the kitchen, one way to get acquainted with the neighbours.
Anyway, I'm in, and have registered with electric, water and telephone companies, internet on by 3rd of September and trying to fathom out how to get the BBC on the TV.
This morning Charlie got up and dressed before 7am and went to the boulangerie by himself to buy fresh bread for our breakfast and also made us (lumpy I must admit) crêpes. He is such a star. I nearly followed him to boulangerie, bit scary to see him go off on his own, even if it is only 5 minutes away, but I resisted and he was so proud of his achievement.
So, a lovely start to the day, even if it was followed by making 6 beds and then working 10 hours at the chateau. 😓
Tomorrow though Charlie and I are having a day off ( and out) and are going on a trip to a beautiful garden about 2 hours away.
I promise to try and get back to reading and posting regularly, miss you all very badly, hoping life will settle down a bit from now on. Best wishes to all, catch up soon. 😀😀😀
