This time last year, all I needed to pack was a bikini, towel and pile of books. Oh how life has changed. I’d looked at ‘French houses for sale’ sites for quite a while…….well, about twenty years to be honest. We’ve holidayed in France since 2005 and just the site of the cross channel ferry gives me goosebumps.
We whittled our search down to one financial area of inland Brittany and went to visit an area on our second summer trip last year. We viewed three houses and made an offer on one of them. We bought on price and it was the say so of a colleague and another blog that took me to Huelgoat.
This year, my packing is very different.
Gardening equipment, ladder, tools, TV, router, plumbing, workbench, crockery, food, dog food, dogs and their crates and clothing.
Our plans: more work on the kitchen, more painting, constructing stairs (they come in a kit) installing stairs, putting us a dog proof fence, a stud wall and join the house up so we can live in all of it.
If you’re in the area, visiting or just passing through. Drop in. The kettle will be on and I’d be glad of the distraction. You won’t find us busy all the time and don’t be surprised if you find me sat in the garden with the dogs.
I’ll be back for a chat tomorrow,
Love Froogs xxxxx
