  1. Many thanks for your prompt reply - I will do as you suggest.
  2. We sold back in Jan 2013, but have just had a TH bill in - via a lettre de relance which has put another 10% on - when the house is not even ours anymore! I paid the TH for 2013 at the end of that year. What do I do now? Does that mean our buyers (English) are not registered for TH?
  3. Came over us last night (we are right by the Dordogne river) - just a few I think - about midnight as I was trying to get to sleep! Woke the OH up - which didn't go down too well!! Made me think about how far do they go in a night - surely they don't try and land in their next stopping off point at night - do they? Unless they have night vision?
  4. Thanks for that Chrissie - found it. Might have to go on the other lot to trawl for an answer to my second query. Incidentally what happens on line to the sentence we added in writing ref exemption to social charges when on E121?
  5. I am doing an online form for the first time so I have a couple of queries. 1. Somewhere else on this forum I read that you must fill in 2047 first, then the 2042. But the online system runs you straight through to the 2042/2042C/2042IOM. Where do we get the 2047 from? 2. Whilst doing the figures in rough first on the paper forms, I put my wife's self employed earnings (from work in the UK) on 2047 Sect V Benefices des Professions Non Commerciales (I am assuming that is right) - but then where do we take that forward onto the 2042? Is it one of the boxes in 8 Divers?
  6. Am I right in thinking (attempting to translate the notes) that for installation of new doors and windows (double glazed) I include the cost of installation (pose) as well as the cost of materials. Unlike the woodburner which went in last FY when only the cost of materials was eligible. Sunday Driver would know this one?
  7. As the original poster I am very grateful for all the comments. I have found some young plants and planted them up. And now having said there were none at our local market - this Thursday guess what - a new stall (bio admittedly) with some raw beetroot! But as Gengulphus has said in an earlier post, these were very squashy (flabby) and the OH said they would be hopeless to grate for the planned beetroot cake.
  8. Thanks for all the replies - makes sense if you think about it that it will only be at the market when in season! Silly me. Will wait for our few plants to grow. Sweet - will report back on the beetroot cake as and when it is made, and eaten!
  9. It seems the only beetroot we can get here in France is betterave cuit - can anyone tell us (or at least the OH) where you can get good old ordinary uncooked beetroot straight from the ground. No luck at our local market or at places like Grand Frais. And I know I could grow our own - have now planted a few young plants, but why not on the food stalls? (By the way, the OH wants to make the beetroot cake as per Nigel Slater!)
  10. Not for bread but for general cooking - what does anyone use? The OH would like to know please! Is bread flour suitable?
  11. Many thanks to parsnips, anOther, Bob T et al for their contributions. All very worthy replies and I will take them on board when I come to fill in the forms. The RAF pension was certainly going on - I am aware that although it is a UK govt pension I still have to declare it (and I have a local govt one as well!). BoB T - we will have to meet sometime and bore ourselves silly with RAF stories - I live just down the road from you.
  12. Trying to fill in the various forms for the first time - we moved here last July 14th following retirement, but on the 30/31st of July I got my (forces) pension lump sum and also my last month's salary. Do I need to declare these particular items on the 2047/2042 just because they came into my (UK) bank account after we became resident here?
  13. ...and I shall be joining Rowland at Cardiff, Wales v France, ticket courtesy of the Welsh team doctor via daughter no 2 ... Should be a great atmosphere in town that day1
  14. Sue Very many thanks for that prompt - and reassuring - reply!
  15. Should I be worried that I have not yet received a taxe d'h bill to calculate? We arrived in July but judging from these posts we should have had one by now? I am sure I can't ignore it!
