If you come under Bordeaux, Doug, there's a minimum 18 month delay. Lot et Garonne used to be dealt with in Agen but it's been transferred :roll: A bit like the Carte Grise fiasco....centralisation and numerisation, without installing the personnel or infrastructure to cope with the demand......
Looked online and Bordeaux is now prosessing April 2016 applications ?
Dont you just love French beaurocracy.

I fully intended to apply on the day I'd been here for five years but my mother's illness rather got in the way. She died last year so I've got more time and energy now :) Mission accomplished 8-) (The application, not her death :D )
So sorry - I didnt mean to be crass :(

This morning, on another forum, a poster posed the question - if someone tried to take a shot at the US President, what would his secret service shout to him? The poster offered the response - donald, duck! The next poster offered a different suggestion. It was - stand still, Mr President, he may not be a good shot!

Surprising. I saw my first on Wednesday 11th. In Sussex.

The sun coming out has pleased me enormously today.

a) it has stopped bloody raining an dthe sun is out.

b) went for a fabbie Chinese/Thai/Japonise meal to a fairly new restaurant recommended by friends. It is large and does buffet and wok service but it is beautifully decorated and lit, lovely ambience; friendly efficient staff and piping hot food, with an incredicble selection of everything salads, sushi and of course cooked meals etc. Big selection of desserts also We were very impressed and it didnt feel like you were eating in the "works canteen". Great selection for Vegitarians but really only salads stuff for vegans. As we are neither it didnt bother us but it is always nice to know.

c) Went shopping to a fairly new magazine - lots of goodies cheap - no not another NOZ - more upmarket. Got a larger carrier bag of goodies for 15 Euros - VHB :D :D

I've also managed a decent cut on what passes for 'the lawn'. it's so hot the cuttings were drying before I'd finished.
Guinness o'clock now with some yummy greasy crisps :D
