This weekend we move to our new home,

where we will embark on a ‘Taylor refurbishment à la Provençal’, new bathrooms, re render the exterior, change the colour of the shutters, re tile all the floors inside and give the garden a serious overhaul.

Naturally the stone cladding

shall remain as will the coloured bathroom (not!)

We had planned a relaxed transfer from our current house allowing us to do some work before moving in but we have a tenant who wants our house on the 22nd, so we will share with him until we move out on the 26th.

That’s assuming the vendor vacates, apparently he is suffering from depression and can’t come to terms with leaving the place – goodness knows why especially at the price we gave him! Anyway the system here is such that we exchanged contracts some 3 months ago, at which time we and the sellers were present, we agreed completion for 4pm this Friday. We, the seller and the agent will all gather in the Notaire's room whilst he reads out the entire contract, afterwhich we all sign, hand over the money and away we all go!
