  1. i just wondered which radio band wave etc is best, sky apart. im in 62 and get a fairly good reception on AM and listen to 5live in the car. for the house i believe a need a 2 band DAB, although technology is ever changing? grateful for any advice. kim
  2. i completed in november, can anyone advise how long the paperwork might take for me to get mine? ty kim
  3. peter i will be interested to see how you get on, im in the same boat, but im going to buy a godin, and hopefully someones coming to have a look. it seems that most in the road didnt have chimneys but have built one one rather than a metal flue kim
  4. hi ive inhetited an electric oven which is passed its sell by date. i was going to clean it, but i think its best left. can anyone please advise as to whether if better to buy locally, (62), or bring from the uk, and in the case of the latter would it be compatible? ty kim
  5. i would suggest you set a budget and then look at whats in that range. go into the shop and feel them and then go to the net, look at a dedicated site such as jessops or 7dayshop.com and research futher. theres not much to choose, panasonic is a maket leader in the mid range, and looks trendy or for a dslr canon or nikon. ignore digital zoom, check whats the latest media card to use and look for the costs of those cards as you will either not be supplied with a memory card or it will be of small capacity. remember its unlikely to come with a case.. i have a sony which is easy to use hope it helps kim
  6. i couldnt log on for much of yesterday from uk kim

  9. well im with CA (without the Britline), having just opened the account. i was unimpressed having driven from the uk specifically on a Saturday to pick up my cheque book and card to be told they hadnt ordered the book, even though various emails had indicated it was ready for collection.  I needed it for the Monday when the Bank wasnt open, so I had a wasted weekend.

  10. Hi The house I have just bought has a shutter with a broken cranking handle. The shutter is in the down position, and looks like the handle has broken off at the top in the moveable joint, looking like the bit in the housing needs replacing as well. Can you advise me please as to the correct terminology and where abouts a replacement part is obtainable from Many Thanks KIM Pas De Calais
  11. hi thanks signed up today with no major hiccups, save for the aged notaire needing to check again, having 1st thought the money hadnt arrived.... as for the house, looks fine, missing the loo paper holders......the soad dish holders and the odd light fitting. she left the kitchen...phew how i just need furniture cheers kim

  14. Hi Im going over to sign on the dotted line on Monday, and trying to ensure everything is ready. My only concern is that I havent had an inventory.  My French is poor and the seller doesnt speak english.  When we had a chat via an interpreter, wasnt very productive, and when she said she was leaving the fitted kitchen , but taking a favourite light fitting, we didnt progress a lot further. The house is unfurnished, so im unsure whether she will want me to pay for something at the signing, or everything is going? Ive mailed the immobilier, without success, (he will sort it out) and the Notaire(without reply) Any thoughts are appreciated or am I worrying about nothing? KIM
  15. well. im over to sign and take possession on monday, with my immobilier interpreting. im told the signing will take an hour.....probably explaining which bit i have to sign ...stupid anglaise lol kim
