17th July - mid-afternoon after a 15 hour drive from Leicestershire. We arrive in rural France. The weather is beyond hot, we are beyond tired. Our new neighbours the beautiful Limousin cows have gathered to say hello.
I am armed with a list of things we need to do to establish that we now 'resident' in France. Including for starters -
Driving and cars.
Healthcare - doctors & dentists.
Leaving the UK paperwork.
So for the first few weeks we kick back with wine and enjoy the sun.
