Well, why wouldn’t you? The Aussie dollar was playing a blinder, we’d had a couple of pretty sturdy emotional knocks and a brush with cancer, why shouldn’t we just find something we liked and see what happens?? Yeah! France had always been good to us – marvellous holidays, great memories , stunning food, the best place in the world for a couple of accommodationphiles who loved seeking out unique places to stay and insisting to our notsoenthusiastic children that just being in a candle makers cottage or living inside ancient ramparts or rambling about in a minstrel gallery in a crumbly old farmhouse or just smelling the sweetness of that olderthanold cider press – we’ll get something of our own … And see what happens! And we did! And we are!!
