Taking a pause

 
 
To let you know that I seem to have come to a crossroads with the blog for the moment,
not closing the blog down, just taking a pause.
 
My reason for starting the blog in the first place was to help the family keep in touch with us as we began our new life here  in France. It has also provided a history for us of our first ten years here, and kept my writing skills active as well, plus connected me to fellow bloggers who I have enjoyed sharing time with.
 
Ten years ago, and here I am looking out of the upstairs window of our ruin of a house.....
 
 
............ten years on, and we now have a lovely cottagey home, a twelve acre small mixed farm, and the experience to move forward into our next project,
but meanwhile needing time out to catch up with myself.
 
So saying goodbye for now,
 
Vx

I wish you luck with all you do. People such as yourselves are rarities out here; very different to all the dull retirees and their bloody cliques. Very best wishes, Cro xx

Selfishly, I will miss your informative, entertaining, inspiring words. But you certainly deserve a rest and the opportunity to focus on other things. Be well and best of luck in your endeavors!

I hope you continue writing, albeit in a non-public arena.

Hi Vera,
I have really enjoyed your blog and photos.I have been full of admiration for the way that you and Lester have learnt how to do so many new things and walked the walk on self sufficiency. Thank you for sharing your life with us and I will miss your updates but understand that sometimes you just have to do other things.
