Hi Everyone, I am looking for a hairdresser and makeup artist in the Lorient area that will be able to accommodate hair appointments/up do's and make up for up to 20 women ( I believe figure would be closer to 10-15). This will be for our wedding on Monday 25th July. If possible I would also need someone to be able to travel to Pont-Scorff to do the hair of the bridal party ( bride, 2 bridesmaids and 2 mothers of the Bride + Groom). Would also like a make-up artist to do the same? If anyone has any suggestions/idea on the above please that would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance, Roisin
After contributing to the recent discussion regarding the situation in Langonnet, it occurred to me that after the persons trying to access your house had been sprayed with pepper, tasered, then half beaten to death with baseball bats and aerated with garden forks, albeit small forks, you might want to think of reviving them; after of course, they had been ho- tied. My friend and I are volunteers with Plouray "Security Civil". In addition I operated for about twenty years in First Response with Staffs Ambulnce Service, I'm also a trained Fire Fighter. In the UK I ran a small business teaching basic First Aid and Trauma including the use of the Defib, to services such as the Military, Police, Fire Service and Council outworkers, including members of the public. I understand my qualifications are not valid over here, however, my intention is to speak Mr Morven and the local Fire representative about running short tauma courses i.e. use of CPR and defib for les Anglais (not forgetting any Jocks) around Langonnet/Plouray and surounding villages. It would be an advantage to provide evidence of local interest by the way of numbers....we'll worry about everything else later, if we get the nod, if it's a no, we'll just do it in secret.....
I have now got to the point where bunion surgery is required, has anybody recently had this done and can comment on the procedure. I live in 56 near Malestroit but have yet to get the referral from my Medicin. Any comments about cost, surgery done as a day procedure and recovery time would be appreciated. I understand 70% is paid by CPAM and balance by mutuelle. Many thanks.
Hello, I wonder if this treatment is available in Brittany. Can anyone please let me know if it is and if so where. I had this treatment in England many years ago and was very impressed. I told my dentist last year that one of my top front teeth was sensitive when I drink something hot even though I use Sensidyne toothpaste and also the colour near the gum looked different. She had a look and said there was nothing wrong. The problem has continued and the discolouration is slightly worse. I looked at the back of the tooth today and there is a small dark circle and it is possible decay.
Hi, for those pensioners visiting Jersey, Boots do a complete eye test ( including retinography ) for ten pounds. I was on a day trip the other week and booked before I went - the service was super! I explained that I lived in France and they said they had quiet a few ex pats coming over because of the waiting time in France to see an ophtalologiste ( what a word to spell!!).
Oh dear, hubby has broken his plate (dentures, not the result of hurling part of dinner service at wall because of my bad cooking. Although my bad cooking may have been the cause.....). Unfortunately Superglue is not living up to it's name and as a temporary measure is not working. Before I start liquidising every meal or swapping him for two 33 year olds, I told him I'd post the question on here (not sure if he heard, but that's another story.) as to whether anybody knows, as there are conflicting answers on here (you don't say!) whether he has to go to a dentist or can go direct to a technician? There is a dentist in Pleyben, near to where we are in Brasparts 29 and there seem to be several technicians not a million miles away. Any recommendations for a technician in Chateaulin, Chateauneuf, Huelgoat if that is the route to go? Will CV help with cost or is it not a vast amount? Many thanks. x
Hello, I moving to Mauron in the next couple of months, and I was wondering if there is a doctor in the area that spoke a bit of english and also for my dogs, if there was a vet there, that spoke english too just incase. If you could pm me at email@example.com Many thanks Jessica
Carte Vitale Issues Not sure if this is a local Finistere issue or not but since 1 January four retired Brit expats in our village alone have had their CV go down. We are in contact with the English speaking help line 0811 363645 but it seems like a good idea to ask if others are having difficulties too. Three of our four require costly treatment very soon let alone medicaments so this is worrying. Our local phrmacy has been very helpful giving us our prescriptions without payment until this is sorted but obviously thta cannot continue for ever. Anybody else out there affected. What is the issue? Is the UK government behind this?
