Re: House Sale

Our lawyer set up accounts with currencies direct, and the proceeds of the house sale were paid into them.We had account numbers & transferred the funds to our UK bank - very straightforward, tho' I can't remember exactly how it was all done.

Re: Jimbo - Future Plans

Glad you got everything sorted :-) - I'm sure those who want to go to UK will understand, & I'm also sure many on here will avail themselves of your services within EU
Good luck with it all :-D

Re: Pro Innate Immunity or Anti Vax - Adverse reactions, Etc

Wicksey - I was refused purchase of decongestant tablets in Boots as the pharmacist said it should not be taken together with Levothyroxine ! As I understand it, it is something to do with the metabolism. Having said that, as I only ever take one, now & then, & have never had any side effect...

Re: IF YOU ARE PROLIFIC CRIMINAL WHY HAVE A TATTOO?

I don't have a problem with tattoos - some are very attractive - but you wouldn't catch me having one at any price, & that goes for any kind of piercing too !

Re: Would You Dob Someone in to DHSS/HMtax etc

As I am struggling & yet unable to claim any benefits, I would very likely 'dob them in' - it pi$$es me off how some people are happy to cheat, and then gloat about it :-(

Re: Restoring Historical Artefacts.

When we reformed our casa, we found quite a few old items, and kept as many as we could - the door & little kitchen window had the original wood beam lintels, & we found the old beam & string that supported the stairs. The front door was hinged as Olive described - sadly we weren't able ...

Re: House Insurance

Last insurance we took out for our holiday home (in 2019) was with Insurance for Holiday Homes & it was just under £450 - dn't know how this compares with your quotes ?
