  1. We had nine happy years to-ing and fro-ing with our cats. We had a large dog cage that we padded out with a blanket. We put a cat litter tray between the two cats to give each their own area. We took regular stops to offer water and food and empty their tray on the long journey to the South of France. We never had any problems, we are still sad that they are no longer with us but are grateful for the 22 and 24 happy years we shared together!

  2. I have  a red leaved one of these in the UK! It has been in a raised beds for about 7 years to my knowledge as we did not plant it and has not flowered once! Maybe they are better in France!

  3. My neighbour has just lost her labrador and would like a King Charles spaniel. Before she goes out and buys one from a breeder is there any that anyone knows of one needing a VERY good home? We are in Charente Maritime.

    People are trying to help you here! At the very least be polite!

    There are terrible companies about! AND YES they do smash up furniture and worse! They will demand more money before they release your effects than you have paid for them to deliver it! If you think they are all professional, you have a lot to learn!

    AND the moderators on here are very good and have a job to do! Please do not critise them!

     

    I really don't know what you're referring to. I have been polite, and I said nothing critical about the moderators. I was simply responding to what someone else said. Perhaps you've misunderstood.

  6. I spoke to Eurotunnel yesterday as we were one of the ones who could not get through on the 14th Sept. They said that they are now running two trains a day carrying cars. Their prority has been for freight as food needs to get through. Also they said that Eurostar has been virtually unaffected! They are to refund the cost of the ticket we had but have said that the refund may take 28 days to show up on our credit card.

  7. Yes, I have a lovely Border Collie and she needs to have the stimulus of some classes for agility or something similar. It would be good to meet other dog owners too! We are near Jonzac in department 17.

    Pumpkin puzzle

    I sling in some chunks of pumpkin with my roast potatoes! Potatoes need to be parboiled to do this!

  9. Letters from Africa are generally after one thing... Your bank account details! Do NOT give it to them! I get about one a week of letters from Africa telling me that they have a fortune to share with me if only I will share my bank details with them! lol!

  10. What is the best way to take euros to France?

    Swift transfers are expensive!

    Getting euros out of your Nationwide account at the French hole in the wall commands a bad exchange rate!

    So is the best way to check which travel agents will do the best interest rate and carry the euros out with you?

  11. Having looked in a few estate agents windows this week 50k will only buy you a complete wreck. Is this the sort of thing you're looking for?

     

    Yes any land in dept 17 is expensive! Good luck with your search!
  12. Thank you so much for sending this! Yes it made me cry remembering how much I loved my own big British shorthair cats who are sadly no longer with me!

  13. At the end of the day, it is important where you are living but in my book more important is who you are with and who is around you!

    want2move, All the Very Best with the completion of purchase and, of course, the move.

    Erns, I have thought about what "good" means and I am sure that one of the key things is that you will be able to sell it on at some later date if you need or want to.

    Now, let's have your definition.
