So Here We Are

So here we are, having a glass of wine and a beer in our home. I am back in France.

We have just signed the documents agreeing to sell our home. It’s time to move on.

I have shed a little tear, I am sure there will be more to come. But for now, despite the stormy weather, it is good to be back in my ‘for now’ home.

Tomorrow we are having a BBQ for all our fabulous French friends and neighbours, and two English friends that we didn’t realise were there, all the time. Here is to a party to celebrate the last five years.

Just a little teaser, I used to swim in this river, right by the bridge.

And I spent many hours under a bridge just like this catching tiddlers in the glen that flowed down from the mountain.

Ireland has so much to look forward to.

Exciting times. But right now, I am going to enjoy the hear and now.


Oh! Just to make you giggle our buyers thought we are religious! I think it may be my vintage bleeding heart statue of Jesus.

You can call us many things but religious is not one of them.




  1. If Jesus helped you sell the house, I’m sure he doesn’t mind. At least you did not have to bury a poor St Anthony upside down in the garden, as I have heard of people doing to sell their house! Enjoy these sweet fleeting moments of France’s farewell to you both.

  2. I had to laugh at your Jesus statue. We have something similar in our home, which my wife bought at a second-hand store because of its kitschy look and vibe. Friends never know what to make of it in the home of a Jewish man. 😉 BTW, I had to look up “tiddler” for its meaning. You’re teaching me some good Britishisms again! – Marty

    • Oh Marty you make me laugh. 🤣🤣 you also make me realise how often English words are foreign at times. The term Tiddly when talking about someone is to mean they are tiny, small, and can also mean drunk. Words you use without even realising ay? ❤️
