Bits and Pieces

Richard went down to the other bank in Lamalou-les-Bains today and spoke to the Manager there who confirmed that they have no problem lending 100% including the Notaire's fees. We have an appointment for 9:00 Monday morning. Wish us luck! He at least seemed more on the ball about mortgages!

I therefore spent the afternoon copying all the necessary documents (again!) - what fun!
We hired a DVD for Nic's sleepover called L'Ecole Fantastique (Sky High) - about kids of Super Heroes and their school. I have to admit we all enjoyed it - well worth a looksee for a lazy day if you have kids (or even if you don't!).

There were jokes for the kids as well as for adults. The Headmistress was played by Linda Carter who had a throw-away line saying 'I'm not Wonder Woman you know!' Of course the girls looked at us strangely when we laughed - only Richard and I are old enough to remember her playing that role all those years ago!

The Tour de France arrived just down the road at Hérépian today. Did we go and watch the bikes go past? Get real! One blink and you miss them!

Instead we helped our neighbours unload a truck full of furniture and things from Eric's Dad's house (he has moved into an apartment). It is amazing how much you can stuff into a garage! As usual, by the time we finished there were about 12 people from the village there helping - all without being asked!
