No Photo Friday today as its a special day for us. Can you believe it?? We’ve been here for 1 year already, how times flies. Living here has taken some adjustment plus there’s been some highs and some lows along the way. Roger has taken to it like a duck to water and has no regrets at all, but I will admit, that at the beginning, I could easily have come back, but we always said we would give it 2 years to make a go of it. I’m more settled now, but only after throwing my toys out of the pram on a few occasions. We’ve learnt a lot, the highlights being that weeds grow quickly here, sandblasting is not fun, our neighbours are amazing and French is hard to learn, but we wouldn’t want it any other way.
Before we came here, a friend asked us what we thought we would miss. It was a difficult question that we couldn’t answer straightaway, but I said, ask us after we’ve been there a year. So here is a little list of 5 things we miss and 5 things we don’t, some silly, some not and in no particular order:-
|What we miss||What we don’t|
|Family and friends without question||Traffic|
|Fab ice lollies||Noise of traffic|
|Clotted cream||Traffic Jams|
|Takeaways||Christmas shopping crowds|
|Vintage extra extra mature cheddar||Traffic|
Live your dreams, not your fears.
