Moving house or our big French Adventure.

I can finally announce that a big move is on the cards. We are moving to France :D
This is our little house and last week we signed the papers to make our dream a reality.
 The grey slate building will be run as a holiday Gite and in time we'll add a couple more rooms to our business so that I can run painting and healing courses in a secluded and peaceful setting.
Behind the barn is our land up to the distant treeline. Our horses and ponies are coming with us <3
 This little corner in the garden will be for meditation or most likely a favourite with the cats.
 At the moment it's covered in Camelia blossoms.
 Nearby is our favourite bar at Pont Samoel. Moomin enjoyed her visit and took lots of pictures of the wildlife around the lake. The bar is in the distance behind her.
 At the farthest end of the lake is a peaceful spot where I lay on a rock and meditated in the sun.
 There were a few sculptures around the lake but this one had us baffled!
 On our usual walk along the river there were so many trees down from a hurricane in March.
 We clambered and climbed our way along the path.
 Apparently it was the worst storm in over 40 years!
 Back at our headquarters I took the time to finish the Interminable shawl. There is no TV or internet and it's absolutely peaceful and perfect for getting things done.
 I'm so happy with how the shawl turned out and realised that it was so heavy to work with because I should have used worsted weight wool instead of extra chunky! No wonder my poor hands struggled with it!
I'm pleased with it though, so I've started another in the proper weight wool and it's galloping along!

So that's the start of our adventure. The next few months will fly by and we'll soon be living a new life!  In the meantime, I need to carry on clearing out and I forsee many trips to the tip!!!
