Yes, while the UK has been enjoying a heatwave and associated storms, we have been having cloudy weather and even rain, which is very unusual for the time of year. As many people keep saying: “C’est bizarre!” To show you how green it is, here’s a photo showing some of the “prairies” (upland meadows) where the sheep and goats graze. You can just spot the roof of Les Courmettes in the middle distance.
We also promised you a photo of the new team, so here we are. Jean-François and Claire Mouhot (pronounced Moo-oh) with their three children, Anna, Paul and Hugo, and Paul Burkhardt. The two Mouhot boys were born in Birmingham and are very similar in age to our own Birmingham grandsons.
Achievements of this week have been: continuing to settle in, getting our French visa cards, Alison now has a French phone number, and exploring various places to see where we might buy a house. And of course we continue to expand our French vocabulary.
