It's New Years Day 2014 (and yes the blog is a little bit behind, but hey this is the beauty of doing an online diary) and so I thought before we continue with our journey it would be nice to recap on the highlights of the year.
These are my highlights if you think I have missed any out please let me know in the comments below.
I would also like to say a big hello to all of the friends we have made on this journey, some of whom we have met and others that have just given support on the way.
Wishing you all a very happy new year
How stupid can 2 middle aged women be
The day we got lost on a cycle ride but saw some beautiful parts of Huelgoat!
The day I gave up on my french and just started to sing and dance with the little old lady who lives next door
The day we got our sheep
The stairs and landing are painted and it looks like a different house
The day the car broke down 10 miles from the airport as we were going to collect my daughter and baby grandaughter and our faith in humanity was restored!
May was a good month, so I have 2 favourites
Vera the Vole and we have a living room
It's a hard choice for June as well, but the winner has to be the day I received a copy of French Property Magazine with my first published article
July is spent on holiday and there were so many highlights but Le Petite Train d'Artouste was amazing, we travelled around the tops of the mountains in a little train wearing jeans and a sweater (we somehow didn't associate the tops of snow covered mountains with being cold!!!!)
We finally make a start on our new kitchen
The trusty BBQ finally leaves the house, this was quite a momentous occasion
A bit of a strange one for a highlight, but looking at it positively the day I thought I was going to die and didn't.
Finding out that the flights to the UK have stopped just before my baby granddaughters first birthday
The main differences between house buying in England and France
My writing competition entry won me 2nd prize and the blog was awarded silver in the expat blog awards 2013
We have had an amazing 2013 and hopefully 2014 will be even better
Happy New year everybody
