Moving forward

They say that moving house is one of the most stressful experiences of your life, up there with divorce and loss of life. Well, it’s our turn next week! After almost 10 years in the Poitou Charentes, we are turning a new page, and will be moving further south into the Corrèze department, close to the glorious Dordogne valley. Saying goodbye to our French neighbours is proving especially difficult. They have appreciated our efforts to integrate into their social network, and a few tears have been shed during the face to face meetings that we have had to date. This is making the decision to move even harder than we imagined. Aperos last night continued ‘till almost midnight, under a starry sky and a lovely warm evening. Our immediate neighbours bought us a lovely momento of all things local, beautifully packaged in a wicker basket. This weekend we prepare all of the boxes for the removal van, physically challenging work as well as emotionally draining. At least we know that our buyer has sent his money to the Notaire ahead of time, and we have the transfer of utility services all in hand. We even managed this week to successfully transfer our existing telephone number to our business associates so that we don’t lose any calls. All of the tasks are slowly being ticked off, but we are now looking forward to the next chapter in our French adventure, in the Vallée de la Dordogne.
