That's life in the country

 Its a sad day today as one of the three beautiful horses that live in the field at the bottom of our garden left us for the horses place in the sky. That however is life here in the countryside.

February 1st 2021

 

Well things have certainly developed since my last post. The UK has left the EU, we now live permanently in France as the Brexit situation would have limited our time here to 90- days and that’s a lot of use if you are retired. Covid 19 arrived in March 2020 and you all know the impact but we have light on the horizon with the vaccine rollout.

The cottage is currently hibernating for the winter and looking fine for the winter and next summer as we painted and stencilled the shutters before the wet weather started so they are all ready and pristine for next year.

 


Life here in our country hamlet continues at its gentle pace. The horses chew the grass and the sheep, chickens, goats and ducks oblivious to human covid problems provide a calming message to all who pass. The local cafes and restaurants are currently closed and we have a curfew between 6pm and 6am but the shops and markets operate to provide all the treats we need to sustain life.

We do look forward to seeing friends and passing motorists and motorcyclists in the future but we fear this may not be possible until 2022…but we can only wait and see.
