Renovation Project - Time to say goodbye!
We are now on to our last few days in France and it is starting to
tell on us, we have so many friends here how are we ever going to get
round to them all to say good bye?
We have a night out everyday until we leave, this is a double
edged sword, it is so nice to see everyone but we know that this is
also the last time we will see some of them, we all say we will visit
each other, but it is unlikely we will get the opportunity to visit
Brittany again in the near future, yet this has been our home for the
last 3 years.
I am so looking forward to our next adventure in Spain, but
leaving Huelgoat is going to be so difficult to do.
In some ways it is more difficult than leaving the UK, after all
we choose to come here and after everything we have achieved we are
leaving it all behind.
When I think back to when we arrived and lived in that leaking
tent, moving into that leaking house, which we transformed into a
lovely B&B, we met so many nice people and made some friends for
How many people can say they followed a dream with no idea what
the outcome would be? And succeed!
Will we have the same opportunities in Spain, will I get too write
for Spanish magazines? Are we making the wrong decision?
These are all questions that go through my mind.
But it is time to move on, we are not getting any younger and the
up side of Spain is that it is so easy too get too, we have already
arranged to meet my daughter there and arranged for her to c0me and
Our final few days go so quickly and we get to say goodbyes and
thank you to so many people who have made our time here so special.
We say goodbye to our neighbours, Laurence the little old French
lady, who unfortunately I think no longer remembers that we have said
goodbye and will be leaving, we still chat every time we see each
other and I have so many happy memories of our trying to converse in
the beginning and giving up and just singing and dancing together,
she is the most wonderful sweet old lady I have ever met.
Didier, out other French neighbour, who could never understand my
accent and who would help anybody with anything and who is so sad too
see us leave.
Edith and Emilie the wonderful sheep, and all of the wild cats who
never really forgave us for taking over their derelict house.
Thank you and goodbye too Sheila and Brian, Gerda and Andy, Sue and Pete, Suzy and
Simon, Laurence and Didier, Dave and Jane, Theresa
and Craig and everybody else who has been such a big part of our
lives, we will miss you and hopefully see you soon.
It's also time to say goodbye to dinner parties with far too much good french wine.
The tears are flowing now, so it is time to go, I hope you all
stay with us in Spain
