Episode 150 – Go

img_20160826_160144Yes, this blog has been very quiet of late. I have had a lot of thinking to do. It’s tiring doing that, the day job, stock hunting, the finishing flourishes to Trevor’s furniture…….

Last Wednesday  was Decision Day. We have talked about moving to France for a decade, then our fortunes changed, and changed again; I nearly died, he nearly died. It’s called life .

So, last Wednesday the Landlord of the Victorian cottage that we currently rent in the UK called me to ask if we had a date to decamp to France yet; he’s not pressing but he needs a concrete  date for personal reasons. So that’s it. The Procrastination Period is at an end.

We  move to Our French Village in March….help!

    Perhaps Oscar Wilde said it best: “Les folies sont les seules choses qu’on ne regrette jamais.” Congratulations on a great step forward in following your hearts. You are a very talented couple who can make this work, and be the better for it.

    PS. More than a touch envious.
