Finally back home after my latest African adventure, and its cold!! Very cold!!
A lot of paperwork and admin to do before I can head to England and collect the beast, insurance, ferries etc, but already I’m somewhat disappointed. Took the dog out for a walk yesterday evening and the neighbour drove past. To clarify this, I live out in the sticks and have 1 neighbour. We live in a tiny hamlet of 3 buildings, one of which is a ruin. My neighbours are very rich, I’m not.
He stopped and we had a brief chat and he told me about his new toy. “You’ll never guess what I’ve just bought”, “no Jean-Yves, I dont suppose I will, so you’d better tell me.” His face lit up as he told me how he’d just bought his childhood dream. A Boxster!! I didnt tell him I was leaving on Friday to pick mine up, so he’ll be a bit surprised when he sees me in it.
So, in the middle of the French countryside there are soon to be two houses, only about a hundred yards apart, both with a Boxster on the drive.
