Thanks, Sue, yes, I know! Going to sort out a procuration with the friend who will pop in to do the pool and check the house over, and make it look like someone is about, whilst we are away. Still, I'm ever hopeful, and as long as it doesn't get struck in the production system which some do, I'll be happy enough. Not sure our post office lady will be helpful, we all call her the obergriffenfuhrer!
ex W1, via 47 and 11 and now [just] in 34, equidistant from Carcassonne, Narbonne and Béziers, where I hope we'll finally stay!!
