  1. I replaced the glass in one of my stoves in the UK after over zealously trying to put a big log in. Cost of glass £50 which I thought was a rip of. But @150 in France now that takes the pee !
  2. Thank you for the advise I will give you a call if I have any further questions and will definitely take her out on the road. May ask if I can loan her for a week or two so I can trial her. We have a miniature pony to keep her company. I love the Andalusians such a noble bread good looks and a fantastic gate ;-) The price seems very reasonable. There is a large equestrian school near by so I may carry on my education there. I have always wanted to learn dressage.
  3. Some advise needed. Having had the pleasure of stabling someone else's horses for the last year. I am thinking about taking the plunge my self. I have found a horse that I am interested in buying 6 year old Andalusian mare, ( I have always wanted to own a Andalusian as I grew up in Spain and fell in love with the breed) Having never owned a horse just ridden since a child, my buying knowledge is limited so I am going to take a fellow equestrian owner with me. If I decide to buy I will ask for the vet to carry out a health cheque. Any other advice ? Here is a picture of the mare price €1600 she is has basic schooling.

  4. Very odd post, smells like a chines SEO trying to raise the ranking !
  5. Lets not forget the great wall renovation, nearly at the end of that one week to go ! Not to mention taking in three fluffy cats from Coops !
  6. [quote user="Chancer"]Congratulations Nubeginnings, you have all worked very very hard and deserve every bit of success [:D] I am now 26kg lighter than I was 9 months ago, lighter and fitter than I was in my teens, it has taken close to 4 decades to finally crack it. I started running during les vacances as all the keep fit classes stopped, I had not ran since school 37 years before and I was always the last then, 5 weeks after starting from zero I ran a semi marathon in just over 2 hours. May the future remain bright for you [:D] [/quote] Thats rather a broad assumption. Given that we have had a few clients that are members of various French forums I will have to disagree with you. As you can see from Chancers post he has in fact stayed with us twice.
  7. At last the Tatler on line version is out ;-) Very pleased even if they have put our UK website address. http://www.tatler.com/guides/spa-guides/2012/search?MainCategory=Work%20It%2c%20Baby&LocationName=Nubeginnings
  8. I never saw season 1 but downloaded the whole of season 2 for a friend in Australia ended up watching the lot and like it ;-) Now for those that like something different The walking dead is mustard ! Well worth searching for on a torrent site.
  9. It was the first property I brought when I was 20 so its rather sentilmental ! But putting that to the side it represents an excellent rental investment generating nearly 3.5k a month. The only issue is the freeholder, but I am hopeful he may sell of one of his flats this year as its been empty for 6 months and he has just renovated it. The managing agent has indicated he may sell if he does the % ownership slips out of his fat little fingers and I shall take pleasure in ripping the building from his clutches via leasehold enfranchisement.
  10. No rental value makes no sense to sell. If I am lucky the freeholder may sell one of his flats this year. If he does that by by freeholder hello enfranchisement and we rip the freehold from the greedy git !
  11. Quillan Out of 6 flats 3 are owned by the freeholder all the lessees pay the service charges demanded. However forcing the freeholder is an expensive uphill struggle.
  12. Leasehold law sucks for the most part. I have been trying to force this particular freeholder via his managing agents to manage the building properly. Its not huge, small mantion block 6 flats above two shops so not complicated. This year I have been pushing for the communal halls ti be refurbished. The response was the freeholder will only stretch to a freshen up, but if you want a better job pay for it your self !
