Sunday 10 January – Slow Start

Looking back over the last week I have to admit that we’re making a slow start to 2021.  That is perhaps not ideal when we have a long list of projects to accomplish and things we want to progress.  I haven’t spoken about my ‘To Do’ list for some time but, rest assured it continues…

First show fall of 2021 at Kergudon

Sunday 03 January 2021 – That Was the Year That Was

Well, that was quite a year. My last blogs of the year, or sometimes the first, have been a summary of the major things we have achieved in the previous 12 months.  I do this more to remind Dave and I of what we have done but hope they are of interest to others.  I…

Christmas martinis

Sunday 27 December – Happy Christmas, Silly ChristM&S

I have to say, I am surprised I am able to write a blog today.  Having seen the recent forecasts and the predicted strength of the winds we should have experienced in Storm Bella, I had every expectation that we would have lost at least power if not just internet in the carnage that could…

Sunday 20 December – Normal service will be resumed …

In my last blog, I gave you a promise that I would post a blog today.  Perhaps that was rash of me and should be treated as a ‘politician’s promise’! I said also there that was lots to do before we wind down for Christmas and that, with the travel restrictions lifted, we hoped to…

Priory lounge decorated for Christmas

Sunday 13 December (Sort of!) – Winter Wonderland

Apologies for not posting a blog last night.  I was a bit behind my ‘wanted to have completed by now’ list (I have lots of lists!) and wanted to wait until we had finished decorating our own home. The last blog, 2 weeks ago, said that I would have more splitting and shredding to be…

Hent Gorreker boundary before felling the final ash trees

Sunday 29 November – Bucking. The Trend.

At the end of my last blog I said that this week’s work would be focussed on completing the clear up of the ash trees already felled before felling some more. It also said that the weather was looking good to do that most of the week and, unusually for us, we actually stuck to…

Laundry room on pause until the end of confinement when our plumber can come!

Sunday 22 November – Ash Wednesday (& Thursday, & Friday …)

Apologies for not posting a blog last week.  I felt that the previous week hadn’t been as productive as we’d have liked.  Perhaps we have developed a confinement malaise which would be disappointing as we got so much done in the spring lockdown!  Maybe this is tied in with the autumn days getting shorter and…

Creating luxury dog friendly gite accommodation in the heart of Brittany

Sunday 08 November – On a slow laundry cycle

If you are reading this blog on our website you may have noticed some changes!  In my last blog, which I can’t link to as it is on the old site, I mentioned that a project Dave had been working on for a number of weeks was about to come to fruition.  This new website…

Sunday 25 October – Busy, busy

I finished last week’s blog saying that we were expecting a busy week as it is the start of the Toussaint holiday in France.  It turned out to be so and we were delighted to be completely full last night with 16 people, our maximum capacity, across the 4 gîtes.  Today Stable is changing occupants…
