Update form Jan & Motley

I don´t know where I got to on the other threads so will start anew.

Nothing is too much for Heike & Jürgen to do for me or Motley, the house is being turned upside down to accommodate us.
Yesterday we bought a lot of carpet runner to cover the floors because of Motley sliding on the floor covering and now he is much happier. Heike and Jürgen couldn´t be better if they were my own flesh and blood.

We left at 8am this morning arrived at Navajo 10am. It is a big place and they were working on a Saturday morning which is unusual for Germany I think, most service garages are closed all weekend.
So many ADAC vehicles there from pick ups trucks to the small vans they use, when they have made the estimate this will also be sent to Fiat as well as me to see if they will be responsible for part payment because of the low milage and year of the engine.

So, we have cleared everything out, the fridge was on electric after all so the freezer stuff is still OK. My room is now overcrowded with bags full of clothes and other things until we can find a home for them all, not as easy as in my house, they don't have the space my house has.


I also saw a solicitor yesterday who is going to find the death certificate of Hans´s father we hope, he seemed quite confident he will, its will cost a bit, but otherwise I will be waiting until 2021 before I can sell the house. There are 16 different Lands in Germany, each have their own laws and rules.

Each day becomes a little easier for Motley and for me, I couldn´t be in a more caring place.

I'm Jan

So glad that everything was all right with the fridge and freezer. You didn't need a mess to clear up. We got home to a defrosted freezer a few weeks ago because an electrical trip had gone. Not nice

Let's hope that Hans father's death certificate is easy to find. I have known of two people recently who died on short trips abroad. Their bodies were repatriated and so the death was also registered here but not sure what happens if they get buried in the country of death.

Heike and Jurgen are wonderful aren't they?

Hope things are a little easier now that you are settling in elsewhere. Not too many daily reminders of Hans that hurt but just the memories that you choose to call up because they are treasured.

Fingers crossed Jan that Fiat pick up some of the tab and that you soon have your MHome back

That will offer you freedom as well as extra storage space

I’m sure the solicitor will sort out the death certificate, it’s probably a more common occurrence than you think

Pleased you and motley seem to be settling in , Heike and Juergen are wonderful friends

Jan will you buy or rent ?

To answer your question on the other thread Sandra.
Whatever is suitable that comes up. Heike has a cousin estate agent and she also has many friends on the look out for me.
It won't be as simple as in the UK, people don´t move every 5 minutes here, they tend to live in the same house, not upsizing or down sizing as much as in the UK.
There is no terrible hurry, each day this house is being adapted to accommodate Motley and me for as long as it takes. Unfortunately the MH probably won't be close to the house, there is no big garden like mine at home, but they are trying to find a safe place to overwinter it.
This afternoon is almost a summers afternoon and they have gone to their caravan 16 km. away, they wanted me to go with them, but I said I would rather they spent the time together without me hanging on. Motley and I are now off for a walk, we have quite a nice choice of walks outside the door, no need to get in the car even.

The last thing I want to do is get on their nerves. At the moment they want to coddle me and look after me, but that won't last forever I'm sure. Although I have to say they are not like we were, living in each others pockets, they have separate interests.

In this house Pat?
Yesterday I was ill, tired and sick, today I have back ache and stiffness because of laying to long yesterday.
Jürgen took Motley for 2 walks, but at the moment he has to keep him on the lead just in case.
Although he very rarely is on a lead he walks very nicely on it.
I can´t remember the last time I was ill.
