Julien checked a magazine from the library, featuring a special on Bordeaux and its environs. Yesterday, after reading the article on Bordeaux, I called Julien and whined about the fact that we decided to rent something 45 minutes south instead of in the city. I was only teasing him, even though I did truly feel a twinge of regret.

Well, this morning, he called to tell me that the owner of our rental called to say that he had given the apartment to someone else and he only has one more available, one that costs 40 euros more per month and whose layout I don't particularly care for. *sigh*

So now we are back to house hunting...

Here's to hoping that this fiasco will turn out for the best, which I'm sure it will. It's just a pain having to spend time looking for lodgings from a distance.

Sorry to hear about the rental.

Even if it might turn out for better, it is such a bother (at least for me) to change plans that have looked final midway. And that is before thinking of the additional long-distance lodging hunting.

Yeah, it is the bother of going from certainty to what-now? that is annoying. If we lived nearer to Bordeaux the annoyance would be greatly minimized. Oh well. :P Such is life.

Aw, damn. You're right, though; this is an opportunity, one that I'm sure you'll surmount with your usual gusto.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that. I hope you can find something else within your price range and close to the city soon.

I hope so, too. It won't be for lack of trying if we can't. What a time sink.

I know! o.O

Hopefully this will be a case of the Universe knows best. :P
