Hi,I am looking for advice from ex-pats in France to help me find the right area to move to full time. I am looking for a detached house with private garden up to c£90k. As I can't drive, a   TGV link within walking/bus distance or possibly a nearby airport would be perfect for the few occasions I return to the UK. I need a good English-speaking vet within walking/public transport distance as well as a Post Office. I need reliable internet in the property for work. I'll be living alone and would like a town with a decent night-life, especially somewhere that has musical events and festivals. Ideally, I'd like to find a house to rent, maybe on a try-before-buy basis (but I have 6 cats and 3 dogs) before taking the plunge. A nearby lake would be great, it doesn't have to be coastal. I know my wish-list is specific, but any help's appreciated, thanks!

In fact, the president of LibDems in France used the money to pay theexpenses for …fully refund his own expenses, and, invite his British friends onFriday, September 27 evening for dinner and lunch on Saturday, September 28noon. LibDems in France: the president leaves a bill of almost1000 € to be paid to the co-organizers of ALDE Party IM / France, the individual members of the Renew Europe group, after the Toulouse meeting of28 September in Toulouse on "Brexit and European Policies »This is a wonderful story of cross-party cooperation that deserves to be told.The current president of the LibDems in France contacted at the end of 2018 theFrench Coordinator of the ALDE Party IM / France.LibDems sits in the "Renew Europe" group formerly ALDE in theEuropean Parliament.The idea was to make a meeting in Toulouse on the theme "Brexit andEuropean Policies".Seeing that the project was not moving forward, and that the President of theLibDems in France was the only one managing everything, I suggested that the"France team" ALDE give him a hand.This team includes, in particular, representatives in France of politicalparties from other EU countries.A budget was presented by the Coordinator ALDE-IM / France, accepted by thepresident of LibDems in France.Quite quickly, the president of the LibDems left us the task of setting up theproject by his repeated absence:impossible to get him to write a program. it was necessary for the CoordinatorALDE-France to draft it; Unable to obtain introductory texts, the president of the LibDems in Francesystematically returned the original text (poorly written in English and poorlytranslated into French);The Coordinator Alde-IM France had given a list of politicians to inviteimperatively by the president of the LibDems, for reasons of republican politeness(including the local presidents of French political parties sitting in thegroup Renew Europe)., The president of the LibDems in France did not inviteany!Between the 2nd of September and the 10th of September, it was impossible tojoin the President of the LibDems, he did not respond voluntarily while we hadurgent things to settle. He responded by email on September 10th that he wasnot answering because he was going on a tour with his family!Even better :On the lack of republican politeness: the customis that when an event like the meeting of Toulouse is organized by bringing inBritish, German and other parliamentarians, the organizer contacts the CityHall to invite the Mayor of the city.The president of the LibDems in France did not doit while the Coordinator ALDE_IM France asked him very many times to do it. It was necessary that the coordinatorALDE_IM France uses all its diplomatic sense of former diplomat to "catchthe blow" and avoid the diplomatic incident with the Mayor of Toulousearriving to invite, even late, the Deputy Mayor concerned.We continue ... It's not over!I pass on the room in the Novotel Purpan whoselast two rows of seats were dirty and stained, the microphones that did notwork.The money and the € 1000 bill left:A week before the meeting in Toulouse, with ticketsales, the accounts were already balanced and the budgeted expenses paid.Only three people had bought the meal proposal.So, it was decided to cancel the proposed lunchmeal, and leave it free.In addition the hotel has a restaurant and thereare restaurants around the hotel.Surprise: At the end of the morning of the 28September meeting, the President of LibDems announced that a buffet lunch wasserved for the participantsWhen the people, whose expenses were to be takencare of, left the hotel, they were surprised to learn that they had to pay thereserved hotel rooms on behalf of the company of the President of the LibDemsin France. , whereas they had to be paid by the President of the LibDems inFrance directly.I remind you that a week before the meeting, therewas enough cash on hand.We continue!A few days later, the president of the LibDems inFrance sent an email to the other co-organizers asking them to pay the entrancefee to the conference plus lunch!Since when do the organizers pay to participate inthe meeting they organized?= 45 €!The President of LibDems in France also said hewould not pay other fees.He left a bill of almost 1000 € for the co-organizers.ALDE Party coordinator IM France sent a complaint against the president ofLibdems En France to LibDems president Jo Swinson.Ditto for the general secretariat of ALDE in Brussels.The financial director of LibDems assured that the costs would be reimbursed... by the President of the Libdems in France.He has still not repaid despite pressure.The ALDE Party Im France coordinator put a post on the ALD-IM Facebook group onthis story.The case is therefore public.For my part, I find myself having paid a bill of just over € 450 while myhusband is unemployed and we absolutely can not afford such a hole. Because ofthe President of LibDems in France, I am obliged to cancel a very importanttrip for me.I wanted to tell you this story because the attitude of the president ofLibDems in France is inadmissible. He is a man without words.ALDE_IM Party France and probably other political parties in Frank will nolonger collaborate with the LibDems in France as long as it will be chaired bythe current president.This is what the ALDE Party Im France coordinator wrote to LibDems PresidentSwinson.As proof of what I have just written, I can give copies of all the justifyingemails.

Would any of you knitters or crafters out there know the quivalent French yarn sizes for English knitting yarns, eg 4 ply, double knitting etc.? I assume the yarn ply will be the same as knitting needle sizes are the same, but I've been told that they have different names.   Thank you.

Just thought it was worth checking on AI about how long you can stay in France if your visit spans from Mid Dec 2019 to End of Jan 2020.  Do you count the visit up 31 Dec in your annual Total for 2019 (183 Days) and then begin a new 183 Days Allocation from 01 Jan to end of Jan for 2020.  I cannot seem to find any clear rules for this. Hope the above makes sense.

Am going to UK next Sat and wanted to take some Brie for my mum - does anyone know if this is allowed? According to the FAQs you can take your own food to eat on the plane but there is absolutely nothing about other food. Has anyone flown recently and tried to take or bring back anything like this?
