I have been meaning to update my own blog for weeks now, but I have made some big life changes in recent months and the blog has taken a bit of a back seat. Thanks to all those who have continued to find and read me – I am very grateful. Normal service is about to be resumed, and I was intending to make my first post about our most significant news – we have moved to France – Finistere in Brittany to be precise – and are currently settling in, getting our businesses set up (we are still working) and making sure we are part of the French system before the dreaded Brexit arrives.

We started to make tentative plans for a new life in a new country about three years ago. Our two children had left home and were making plans for a future in London. We lived in a small town in Somerset in a terraced house on a rat run and were fed up with being bullied in our own road by impatient drivers trying to save about 5 seconds on their journey.
