Four good things

1. Solar eclipse

The clouds parted just enough for us to see the eclipse this week.



2. I'm organised

You may remember last year I was moaning about not having enough storage and too many clothes. Well I've been Ebaying and giving to charity shops, some hard decisions were made about clothes I loved but never wore. Andrew gave me a linen press for my birthday last year, a piece of furniture I had always yearned for and all my problems were solved.



3. Bees

I'm nearly half way through the bee keeping course. 3 out of 4 theory and then in May there are 4 practical lessons. Part of me really wants to keep bees but then I'm thinking, do I need something else in my life right now? And what happens when we move? At the moment the bees are winning!




4. I fell in love

It's OK Andrew knows, actually he approves. Sadly at €120,000 I know that this mill house is not going to be around when we're ready to buy :-(

    1. Hi Carol! You should be able to click on the 'mill house' and be put through. If not then just search for La Vache Rouge Immo.

  2. Nice solar eclipse shot! We saw nothing here. I'm impressed by your tidiness. You won't be impressed by mine..... Bees also impressive. And you are casting your net ever wider in your house search, non?

    1. Not all the house is as tidy as my cupboard! As for the French house - it's sort of close to one our our preferred areas but we've decided to be house and location led as there are too many nice places if France to choose from!

  3. Oh Sharon - you file your clothes by colour?!!! (Bows down on floor in disbelief and admiration ...). Hope the bees do win out - it's something I'd love to do but am resolutely not taking on yet another commitment in my life (in fact I'm in the process of shedding them!), so I'd love to read about someone else's experiences of setting up!

    1. If I didn't do the colour stuff I'd never cope in the morning - and I do have a minimal range of colours so it's not that bad! As for the bees the commitment does worry me but I really do want to try so watch this space.
