Almost Home!

August 16, 2012

Meet two of my new best friends!

Clio

and TomTom!

(And look at how cool TomTom is, he tells us when there is a radar (Upper left, 325 meters away!), what the speed limit is (middle left, 130kph), and many, many other things (like the temp, which was 22 degrees C)!

To say I adore the Clio/TomTom duo would be a severe understatement. It was with their assistance that we made it out of Paris and into Limoges.

On the way we stopped at a rest area where we got to see some real French people having a picnic on their way down south! (I’m not sure, but I think they might be GAY French picnickers as well!)

And we also got to experience a real French rest area Turkish toilet. It was, um, an experience. Let’s just say that the whole experience depends on the person in front of you NOT peeing on the pedestal on which you are about to stand! Let’s just say the people before us didn’t quite understand the concept! Blech!

And this is the countryside as we approached our new hometown of Limoges. The photo doesn’t do it justice, but it was really beautiful!

After a lovely lunch with our Limogeaud (I found out someone from Limoges is called Limogeaud (Lee-muh-jo)) family and then we were off to see our new house!

Our new street! (Well, really it’s a deadend, but still…)

And a peek at our home (on the right, yes attached to the other two homes), it starts at the chimney near the center of the photo and continues through the L!

The overgrown front gate.

And THE BEST room in the house: our atelier (studio)! My sewing/creative space will be in here, as will a space for Oliver to paint/draw/craft, and maybe even some room for Hubby (although he is getting his very own office, so maybe I won’t have to share!).

The view from our bedroom window.

The inside of our bedroom (with lots of dust all over because they’re doing work, which I’ll get back to in a later post!).

And a shot of one of the streets in our new hometown (yes, that’s hubby being pushed UP the street by Uncle).

I will definitely be having sweet dreams tonight because I CANNOT wait to be in our new home!

    L’atelier is to die for, I want those windows. What an amazing space to create in. Can hardly wait to see the whole house fixed up and made into your new home.
