Voilà le printemps !

Spring has really arrived in our little French town on the outskirts of Paris.
I realised that I don't write much about France and yet we have been here now for nearly a year.

Our town is much like every other beautiful town in France:  it has a bakery where the entire town buy baguettes and carry them home under their armpits, a pharmacy better stocked than most English hospitals, a Town Hall (plus Mayor) where all the important (and many of the unimportant) decisions are made and of course a town park where old pétanque playing men put the world to rights and everyone gathers to eat lunch in the sun during their 2.5hr lunch breaks.
 Perfect for a lazy day spent outside with the four of us.

  2. Looks lovely! What brought you there - a whim or something more concrete? Deciding on a move myself right now and it is soooo hard.

    1. Hi Rach, we came here for my work originally (I got a job working in Paris for an energy company) but I've been on 'maternity leave' since arriving here. In August this year I am due to go back to work but we'll see what happens. Our farm in Sweden is where are heart really is and we shall be there from June until my work start date.
      We are still working out the timings of our grand plan but eventually we will live permanently in Sweden.
