Or whatever it's spelled.
Well it's a done deal, I'm now the official owner of a most lovely flat !! I just signed the papers this afternoon. I was a bit nervous at first because I had the feeling something would go wrong, the notary (I guess it's called that) would find out something was missing or one of the loan paper would be incorrectly filled out... I just couldn't picture things going smoothly which is nevertheless, what happened.

After signing, I went straight to the flat to check it out, see what I'm gonna need to buy, snap some pictures and videos for my gran' and basically just look around and enjoy the view :) I love it so far.
There's a few things I need to fix, nothing serious (some paint, wallpaper, wood floor) but it's gonna take some time and the worse of the furniture won't be there before May 19th. I should properly move in around first of second week of June.
Which means I'm hosting the BR august birthday/good bye party/bash dance extravaganza and some.

And icing on the cake, I just had a call from a really really dear friend of mine: his wife gave birth to an healthy, yet from the pictures quite ugly (she's got his nose, poor thing :) baby girl named Caitlin. He's kind of stoned right now but he's happy, we all are !
Please join me in giving her a warm welcome to our little corner of the Universe.

Shame he lives in Normandy now, I really want to stop by and say hi to the kid :)

P.S.: French peeps don't forget the vote on Sunday *fingers crossed*. I really don't want Sarkozy to win this *fingers double crossed*.

Yay !! We want photos too ! And yay for august !

Are Caitlin's parents french ? Because the name is very irish I think.

I'm gonna vote like most of young people, but sadly there's a lot of (not so young I think) people who vote for HIM. I can't believe it because all around me I can hear that everybody wants HER to win, but when you see the results, it's not like that.
Anyway, *fingers crossed*. I can't picture either of them as a president, but I'd rather see her than him ! And female president... :)

I'll try to post some pics this week end :)

They're the frenchest people I know :) but I do like the name.

Well I'd say most cities and urban areas tend to vote moderate right or left and that might be why we feel in our neighborhood, a slight advantage for her but when you do the balance with the rest of the country... Not so much :(
I'm all for a women head of state although I'd rather have someone closer to my views like Martine Aubry, Dominique Voynet or you know... Jo :)

Yay yay yay!!!

Re: Sarkozy: I was appalled yesterday to hear people who *were* my friends saying Sarkozy was the only one they saw who could "save France" (their words). I was like WTF? Alright, he may be able to save some parts of France, but what will be the price to pay by the others? Some will also vote for him because they don't like Royal.

I so agree with you on this one : Yay !!!

To be honest with you, I don't really share all of Sego's views on many things but she's a hundred times better than her opponent. So yep, here we are, hoping for a miracle.

Thank you sir :)

We all do (at least, most of the people I know) and the support from abroad is really appreciated. If you ever come to Paris, I seriously need to buy you a drink !!

I may take you up on that - I'll be in Paris on holiday the first week of June.

I'm in Blackpool the first week end of June, coming back late at night Monday 4th but after that I'm all free. You have a favorite pub ? :)

No idea, I haven't been to Paris in years and was very young when I was there before. I'll email you closer to.

Je vais faire mon boulet et commenter en français dans le texte parce que je suis rien qu'une sale feignasse ;p (heureusement, Sarko va vite me remettre au boulot...) Félicitations donc et, comme tout le monde, je demande des photos !

Booouuuh comment c'est trop pas bien ce que tu fais la ! Vivement dimanche qu'on t'y reprennes plus :p
C'est marrant comme c'est une perspective qui me navre profondement et pourtant c'est presque un sujet de plaisanterie au boulot ou avec des amis... Je suppose que c'est un cas de "mieux vaut en rire (sarcastiquement de préférence)histoire de pas avoir à en pleurer"

Merci et photos tu auras... probablement ce week end... à priori.

Congrats !! And good luck for all the stuff :)

For sunday, I don't know... I don't like him but I'm sorry, I don't like her either... I'm waiting for wed, the TV debate... We'll see.

But for sure : I can't wait for August. I really miss you BR people !! :)

Thanks :)

See my replies to comments above: as much as I don't share some of her views, his methods and his ideas are, I think, far worse.

And it will be at my house !!! Double awesome :)

*HIGH FIVES* (not so high or you won't reach my hand :)
And pictures you shall have.
And, starting around June, you'll see the place, you'll eat, drink, have a sleep over if you feel like it. Mi casa es su casa (I'm trying to help you keep your resolution about spanish :)

And I share your worries but there's not much we can do at this point. *crossing everything that can be crossed* !!

Is it really worth saying 'yay! congrats!'? You know we're all curious about the photos and we're all happy for you, don't you? =)
*has fun imagining someone moaning "Damn, Fred finally got a flat... and (worst of all), he's happy about it. grr"*

It's always worth it :)

Which reminds me, I send you a text message on your french phone to know about the interviews, your future and stuff since we last saw each other but I guess you don't use it when you're in the UK.
So how are things ? Any news about next year ? We're all looking forward to have you around :)

Date: 2007-05-04 06:40 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] c-l-a-r-a.livejournal.com
Oops, yeah, no French phone here. If you want the English number some day, give me a shout (but maybe not on lj, I wouldn't want hundreds of random people calling me, would I?)(*cough* yes I am that popular ^^)

Anyway, news are pretty positive up to now. :) Remember the crazy interview I wasn't sure I wanted to go to? Well, I went, passed, got invited to the assessment day, and got a phone call 2 days ago saying I was offered a place !! Tadaaa. :)
The other process (the one leading to me annoying you all more regularly) is going well so far. Tests were good, and I'm waiting for the interview in 2 weeks. Results in June, I'll keep you posted.

Félicitations à toi pour ton appart! Et à tes amis pour leur bébé! ^^

J'irai voter dimanche et je croiserai les doigts en attendant les résultats. C'est tout ce qu'on peut faire, je crois...é.è

Effectivement on ne peut pas faire grand chose de plus. La j'en suis à croiser tout ce qui est croisable sur ma personne :)

Donc on pourra jeter un oeil au nouvel appart le 19, et j'amène ma tenue 'travaux' pour l'occasion?;) Dommage que j'habite aps plus près, j'aurais bien aidé pour la peinture-papier peint-pose des parquets flottants maintenant que je suis une pro :)
