Time is getting short now, and we still don’t have a firm completion date for the apartment. It now looks unlikely that it will be ready for our arrival on the 18th December, so i have booked a cheap apartment until Christmas Day. I am working full-time, but going to IKEA and other places after work, buying bedding etc. We have ordered the furniture from IKEA france, and arranged to deliver it to Mel’s garage on arrival,just in caes the apartment is not completed in time. I am constantly emailing our agent and developer, who must be sick to death of me. I think everything is sorted, and apart from it being Christmas, it’s rather hectic!!! Not long now though.
