First of all a very large sorry for not “blogging” for so long but we were in the process of moving to France. After the various trials and tribulations we finally have most of our furniture and our computer is installed in our new home. More on the move and I hope helpful hints to future movers in our next blog.

The children had drawn pictures of support for the crimes and loss of Paris.
This picture was taken yesterday and I think that it says it all. The candle is replaced and lit everyday.
This sort of tragedy happens so often around the world, and it’s terrible.
