It's been a while.

Hello t'internets!

Just thought I'd post a (very) quick update for anyone wondering what happened to this blog (all three of you)...

So we moved back to France. Yes, just like that. Well, sort of. See, Ze Husband's job was getting out of hand, and we decided, as a family, that a career change might be in order. Being totally financially-driven and pursuing professional success, maths teaching was the obvious option, and we felt that the whole retraining thing would be less disruptive in France. Only... I was pregnant, so we were going to wait until the baby came and ZH got his training posting in July, then move in August before school started.

And then our landlord decided to sell the house we were living in.
And then it's pretty hard to find anywhere to rent with three-going-on-four kids for only three months, especially near said kids' school.

So in April last year, we upped sticks, put our furniture into storage, and moved in with Ze Inlaws just outside Lyon, France. It was Very Hot. I was Very Pregnant. Then I was Less Pregnant and had a baby to play with instead, and ZH got his posting, and now we're living near Chartres in the Centre region (yes, it's in the centre of France. Who would have thunk it?).  

...and within a fortnight Ze Husband had "accidentally" let on to the parish priest that I played the organ, and now I'm the "spare" organist. It seems some things never change.


  1. We have entered into the "age to come" foretold by Jesus in Mark 10:30.

  2. Catherine, it's nearly two years since your last post here. Could we have some more words please?
    Are you still in France? How's it going? And what about Covid 19, how's that affecting you?
