I am looking for a new garden shed as mine is falling to bits (literally). Can anyone recommend a good store to buy one from or even a local craftsman who makes them?

I have heard that if you want to sell a property here in France you have to provide diagnostics (whatever they are) about the house. Can anyone shed light on this for me as we are about to put our place on the market.

We are looking for some waterlillies for our garden pond. Any ideas where we can go in the centre of Strasbourg? We don't have a car so heading out of town is problematic.

We have just moved into a house with a small garden and we have totally overhauled the latter. We are looking for alternatives to lawn as we don't want the hassle of mowing come summertime. Any suggestions please?

I have noticed that our yellow recyling bin that used to be in the residence car park has been mising for about 3 weeks. Is this normal? Is there a new recycling scheme I don't know about?

Our washing machine just died (needs a new circuit board) and it seems that no-one in France can help us! It is a Maytag that we bought in Australia (yes, I know, that's half the problem) and no repairer or dealer that we speak to (in France or UK) can help us to get parts or even come and look at it. What do people here do - just buy a new one? Do they just buy new clothes instead? Any help on friendly, English-speaking repair persons or companies would be really (and I mean REALLY) appreciated. Cheers, Phil and Marianne

Has anyone ever tried the La Poste postal forwarding serivce? I don't know whether to trust it or not when I move house next month. Do letters really get redirected efficiently?

Do you know if there is a Sia home store in Strasbourg please? I know there are sometimes sections in good old Gallery Lafayette but there isn't enough choice for my liking. Thank you in advance.
