I did it.
You know I have been learning French for what seems like an entire lifetime, and I am constantly saying to various friends "I am never going to be able to speak and understand this language" and I must say all our friends who can speak the lingo have been extremely helpful when it comes to needing them to translate for us and we don't know quite what we would have done without them when it has been something serious or technical.
The main reason for my ranting is that I went into the shop without a safety net (A translator) and ordered this freezer, arranged delivery and also arranged for the old one to be taken away, they understood me and I understood them, Eureka
At last it is starting to all fall into place and trust me it felt so good. I will post pictures of the said freezer when it is installed next Tuesday.
