After packing up the house and saying goodbye to our boxes we said goodbye to London back in July 2013. Andrew had successfully learnt to drive and we bought a car ready for our new life in France (can't do anything without a car round here.) The first summer felt like a holiday as we attended village festivals and discovered a cow that thought it was a horse!
After the familiarity of August, September threw us into new territory as Reuben started school and we discovered the joys of seasonal festivals such as the sweet chestnut festival and Tractomania. We retreated into the warmth of our little house (thanks to our supply of winter wood) and celebrated our first Christmas in France with family and friends.
The New Year brought much needed work for Andrew (which hasn't stopped since) and I experienced life as a teacher, teaching English to French children and piano to beginners. We bought our first set of chickens and had fun eagerly awaiting the arrival of the first egg!
Thank you to everyone who has helped us this past year. We're look forward to the year ahead!
Becky, Andrew, Reuben and Jacob xx
