Welcome back True Brit!!!
Renovating a house in southern France using French contractors and everybody smokes?!?!?!
That really does sound stressful. You don't actually let the French contractors smoke in your house while they are renovating, do you?
Or should I ask - do you have a choice?
Sounds like coming back to the UK was a real "breath of fresh air" for a change.
Sure was good hearing back from you and hope all is well.
