Soon we'll be back in France, preparing all that the end of summer brings, getting ready for the start of school and the usual routines. Summer is always so short but this one has been fun. It seems I've spent 2 months packing and unpacking bags. We've just spent a fortnight in England and as usual stayed a few days in my grandparents old cottage in North Wales. I've been visiting this area for forty years and feel almost at home when we are there. I never tire of the mountain views, the deep green of the hills and the friendly people.
Although it's hard saying goodbye to family here, I'm excited about what the next few months will bring. We have major renovation work about to begin on our home, I'm due to begin a new teaching post in the local schools and we're already planning our holidays for next year...it's all good.
