Angelo doesn't live here anymore

We have thought long and hard about whether Angelo should make the move to France with us. He is a much loved cat and originally I had thought of course he should come with us.

On the other hand cats are more attached to places than people so I then hoped that maybe he would be able to stay with the new owners or next door neighbours but that was not possible.

Eventually we decided that an 800mile journey over two days would be a huge ordeal for him and we will be moving more than once over the next few months making it very difficult for him to settle so we have found friends keen to adopt him and act as his new "staff".

This morning we took him to his new home. He certainly did not like the travelling ( and it was less than 8 miles not 800). He seemed to like his new "chief of staff" and when we left had selected a chair to curl up on so hopefully he will settle and enjoy discovering a new patch of territory.

I am sure we will miss him more than he misses us! I do hope he's OK.
On other matters our garage is now half full again - our buyers have spent the day moving vanloads of stuff in as they are hoping to move out of their house this week- this really does start to look very promising.

Wise move to make your way to France :) We bought 5 years ago with the hopes that my husband could retire in a couple of years. The financial situation made this impossible so we are now 1/2 and 1/2. We love it here, Roll on retirement. Diane
