Why does no one ever blog about the sheer slog and the practical detail of moving to another country? Boring? Is it? ………….Tough!
This is the “warts and all” blog diary, complete with almost full candour, so you guys are going to get the full picture, is that OK?
I am irresistably compelled to do it my way, so I will just ramble away like I do……
First, the piles of paperwork. We haven’t even started on personal stuff yet, but as I type , I can hear the gentle hum of the brand new shredder as Trev manfully wades his way through six years of confidential waste from my office. Let’s hope this shredder lasts longer than the last one and is sturdier than all those vacuum cleaners we have blown up in France. Unfortunately, my job relies only partly on electronically (or cloud held) data, it’s one of the last bastions of the paper office.
For those worried about all that waste paper, ours will go into packing boxes and be useful.
