Renovation project - Goodbye Jenny and John in France

Renovation project - Goodbye Jenny and John in France

Wow this is it, we have arrived in Portugal and as you may be aware the blogging stopped for quite some time.

It took me a while to decide whether or not to blog again and as you can see the decision is yes.

But we have made a big decision. 

Jenny and John in France is coming to an end, the blog that has given me so much is not really relevant now that we are in Portugal.

I have made some lifelong friends via the blog, both virtual and in the flesh. This was not something that I had ever expected when I began blogging, but it is without doubt one of the biggest benefits.

I have helped to put Huelgoat on the map which is great as it is one of my all time favourite villages and i will never forget people being introduced to me and hearing, oh are you jenny from the blog, such an amazing feeling.

It has also been great helping others , with advice on building, house purchasing and the little e-book that I wrote.

I have so enjoyed writing for the magazines and being featured.

But all good things must come to an end, and as we know with every ending is a new beginning, so I would like to introduce you to Jenny and John in Portugal.

We are starting at the beginning, we have sold every thing and once again the only possessions we have are what we fitted in the car, it is time to find another derelict house and start again.

I hope you all join us on our new journey, here is the link to our new blog, for the first few posts I will link on here.

I would like to give a final big thank you to all of you for taking the time to read my ramblings and giving encouragement and support through your comments.

So a final thank you and good bye from Jenny and John in France and hopefully a warm welcome to Jenny and John in Portugal.
