We are in Eastern England just now looking to move home whenever we can sell up here. Looking in Westmeath in the Athlone area although tempted also by Cork/Kerry. Mrs JSKS is English, poor thing, but reasonably well house-trained.

Best of luck with the sale.

Hi
My wife and I live in dept 56 we have lived here for 14 years, we are retired pensioners, our interests are gardening and my background as an aircraft engineer has allowed me to continue with my hobby of restoring old cars in particular 2CVs of which I have two one is on the road and the other being a Dolly is now ready for its CT both have been restored to a high standard and if anyone is interested they are a great investment and I may consider selling them in the near future to make room in my garage.

This seems to be an interesting forum and I look forward to participating in various discussions.

I'm restoring an old Saab 900.

Unfortunately I am not a retired aircraft engineer and subsequently have no idea what I am doing.

Mysty was restoring his Alfa's and he had no idea what he is doing either. So he has carved them up with an axel grinder and has taken them to the dump.

At least my Saab goes. :lol: I could drive it to the dump :?

There is a little road in the centre of Amboise (as you head up towards the Chateaux) where a bloke is building a plane in his small garage. I have no idea how (once he has built it) going to get it out of the garage. :?

I best get back to the garden :D

Thats a great tip!

Next time that I completely **** something up and render it useless and worthless through my overconfidence and incompetence I will say that I am restoring it :good:

So far I have "restored" a brand new shower enclosure and a stained decorative double glazed sealed unit on the front door, very little really for 14 years. Oh I forgot, I have restored several computers that say "No!" :lol:

Hi
New to Forum.
Have ideas of moving to France

July and early August will spend 5 week touring France in our VW t25 campervan. If it behaves. Old vans are so unpredictable.

I have dual Nationality.
Only this year I obtained my Carte Identité Francais. Was motivated my Brexit.
My mother was French. My father still lives alone in Compiegne.

I speak French with a South London Accent. Not too pleasing to the hear. Would improve with more exposure to French Culture.

Look forward to browsing this forum for valuable info.

Rob

Compiegne is not too far from me, seemed like a town with some life unlike most, a bit of a culture shock.

I liked Chateau Pierrefonds. (the S might be an error)

I like Pierrefonds too. Nice place to sit and watch the world go by.

Not noticed many Brits around Compiegne. Except some times at the race track.
My Parents moved there over 25 years ago. The house is on the edge of the forest.
Very convenient location for us to visit.
