...bogged down!

Sorry for not writing as much as I'd liked, we've had an interesting few days... yesterday a huge lightning storm knocked out our electricity and today our moving company majorly messed up, they subcontracted to a french company who turning up unannounced today, more than a week early, demanding we provide somewhere for our 500 cu ft of stuff. Not that easy given we haven't quite found our rental accommodation yet and they weren't due till next week....of course our key agent is on annual leave and cannot be reached...so all our worldly belongings have been locked up in storage until fines are paid...delightful! let's hope tomorrow is a better day (we're viewing two houses for rent in the area and REALLY need for one of them to work)
