I just ate the first peas of the year which have overwintered in my cold greenhouse. The French seem to buy plants for their gardens, hence them leaving it till after the middle of May, so they hopefully avoid the frost. We're at 550m altitude and I plant much the same as in UK but keep an eye on th...

It's to sand a wooden floor but I can't use an ordinary floor sander as they're too heavy to get up into my attic. This is a much smaller version but still adequate for the job.

I wonder if anyone knows the name of the Tool Hire company at Aubusson, I have hunted all over the place to no avail and also can anyone tell me the French for Edging Sander?!! I would prefer not to look a total idiot when I go in there!

That's what my insurance company ask for. They don't need to see it but if you have a fire that starts in your chimney, you aren't covered without a certificat de ramonage, I believe.

There is stuff to do out there but you do have to go out and look for it. I find I read anything and everything that I can find from notices in the local shops to signs on the road telling you what's going on. We have had our house for 8 years and it has taken time to settle in and make friends but ...

Yes, that is what I have found, you have to get the bomb in immediately you spot the little darling's hole!!! We did manage to kill one the other day when i saw the carrot leaves waving around as it was eating them and Tim despatched it with a spade! Sorry to any of you with sensitive natures.

We have had one for about 5 years and it's brilliant, no queueing or hunting around for change or your card or jumping out of your right-hand drive car to go and pay. They only charge you in the months that you use the doofer, about 2 euros a month, so it's not a bad price and we consider it well wo...

We have been using one for about 5 years and love it. It saves so much time and they only charge you 2 euros per month for the months in which you use the device, so it's not a bad deal. There are some new toll booths in some areas now where if you drive through at 30kph, you don't even have to stop...

If you come into Aubusson and head towards LImoges, you will cross the level crossing. Turn immediately left after the crossing and it's about 400 yards up that road on the right hand side.

This morning we had a flooded kitchen. We eventually discovered that it was because the water meter pit had filled up with water and it was coming in through the wall! We've never had a problem before, never even seen any water in the pit but it's clearly because of all the rain! Think we got off fa...
