So - here at last!

After 6 months of waiting - today was my first day in my new Job here and im currnetly sitting in a pretty cruddy hotel because my temporary accomodation is not ready.
Husband and dogs still in UK and nowhere yet to call home so felt a little lonely and overwhelmed earlier.
Thanks goodness for Skype and internet!!

Also - lost my house at the last minute. Id been looking at it since Feb - very lucky as 6 houses available which werent moving - so was no rush. Set up appointment to view for tomorrow - this was 2 weeks ago - 3 houses still left. Emailed Monday to confirm appointment and was told they were all gone. Very disappointed in the agent for not telling me there had been more interest in the houses as I could easily have flwon over to view a few weeks ago - but she told me not to worry as there were 3 houses left, and therefore made sense for me to wait another 2 weeks until I arrived (seeing as how I had waited almost 4-5 months already)

So - back to square one in the search! Seen a place in Morges that might be ok, but my hopes of being in the house and bringing dogs over quickly have been dashed.
Having read up on here and other places I knew I had been quite lucky finding the house early on and it still being avaialable for months - but to be pipped at the post literally a few days before - is just BAD TIMING

Anyways - life goes on, I have regrouped, and am ready to start the search again. Not much else to do at moment whilst living in a hotel room except search and explore....oh yeah and I have to train for my marathon tats in 13 weeks time arggh!!! No pressure then
