I cannot see any point in trying to argue so am just going to have to pay up and be a lot more c...

Just bought a house !!

by Daviddiavel • Mon 23 Apr 2018 16:19

Finally managed to own my little bit of france. A small 2 bed stone cottage just outside Crozant.
We have family and friends wishing to visit for the summer to holiday and may need someone local to do a Saturday changeover.
Anyone on here who may be interested in earning some extra cash??
David.
