Many thanks for the kind words, I do appreciate it and it illuminates the future a little more.
I spent yesterday trying to decipher the travel restrictions, as the municipality in Portugal have been in contact about supplying mains water to the house and I need to get this done pronto so that we can have a better standard of living
So I am allowed entry to Portugal because I am a resident returning to their main home and have the permits with me, although the border is closed between Spain and Portugal there are a few primary routes that remain open with operating hours
The French entry surprisingly(not) was harder to ascertain as they have advice for UK persons but they have not bothered to translate it to English and the certificate you have to fill in is also in French, the fucking miserable bastards
So I spent time yesterday on google translate and it seems if you are a UK national and have residency status in France or any other EU country, then you can enter France, however they discourage it.
So I need to get a health cert for the dog and the cat, PCR tests for us and then we can get to the channel tunnel, so the timing is paramount in all of this, otherwise a few hundred quids will be lost on tests alone! They have made it so difficult and expensive to go anywhere at this moment, but I believe this is the future now for the foreseeable....Which kind messes up all the journies I had planned for this year moving all my gear in a a van, as it is safer and easier to bring Wendy and that means the animals too, this is now prohibitively expensive, so I will be having plenty of e bay action and bonfires
Trying to move not just house, but country in a global pandemic with Brexit thrown in for good measure is not impossible, but by fuck it is testing and if I come out the other side I shall grow more weed than is good for me
