I'm looking for a reclaim yard. Frankly, I'd be willing to travel pretty far. I know these sorts of places are hidden away usually and hardly ever clearly sign posted. I've had no luck so far sniffing one out. Please help me out! I'm really looking for some old tomettes.
Used to have organic veg baskets delivered to my flat in London. Considering how many 'bio' products I see, I'm hoping (!!) there is something in the area that is similar: organic veg box or basket, with seasonal items, delivered weekly. Anyone else have these? Or even know what I can search for on Google? Thanks! obamamama
We had a diagnostic inspection this morning and the inspector was pretty thorough until it came to termites. He just asked me if we had termites...which I obviously said no to :), which is true, but surely that's not the best way to check for termites!!! I thought these inspections were supposed to actually mean something. Next time I sign a compromis I'm going to be pretty suspicious of the diagnostic report. Anyone else think this is kind of dodgy?
Desperately looking for someone in Saone et Loire whom I can borrow a weed-wacker from. To rent one I would have to drive to Dijon and back, pay for gas and equipment rental etc. I would only need it for an afternoon. Would pick up and return same day. Please email me if you can help.
I've been having a hard time finding a good place to find wool. Our local market sometimes sells wool but it's usually synthetic and pretty horrible colours. I'm looking for something along the lines of Debbie Bliss type wool. I once found a tiny wool shop (I think in Geugnon - it as ages ago) but the prices were ridiculous. I was considering buying it online but I would love to find a little shop and potentially a knitting group or someting of the like.
We just had electricity cut off even though we paid online a month ago. EDF has no record of our payment! So now I have to pay for a reconnection charge. When the EDF technician came to our house, he said that the online payments had been going 'missing' alot and that is was best to always pay over the phone or by sending a TIP/cheque. I don't think he was really supposed to tell us that but we've gotten to know him over the years. Really frustrating since we've previously always paid online. But warning to everyone else - if you are paying online, check to see if the money actually leaves your account before the cut off date!
I just got a quote for getting the diganostic survey done on our house (70 metres squared) and it was 600 euros. That seems really high! I thought they were around 300 euros. I can't remember where I found that figure, might have just been in conversations over the years. Any one else have any prices they could share with me? Cheers.
Its getting cold so I fired up the wood burning stove and the seal around the edge of the door promtly fell off! Initially we continued without the seal, but i think we were getting gassed so we're going to have to fix it before reuseing the fire. Does anyone know how to go about fixing the seal? It looks as if the fire rope is reuseable - but how do i go about afixing it to a metal surface? Any help would be very much appreciated awsw
