4 dogs, 5 cats, 1 Llama (at the moment – looking for a mate) 2 kune kune pet pigs 2 goats, too many chickens to count (they don’t stand still!) and 1 goose. Largish farm house with 2 independent gites (couples only) and 6 miles away a 5 bedroom beach house on Utah Beach itself… a husband, no children, reasonable pretty crap French pretty well sums up where we are at.
We’ve lived in France now coming up to 10 years. quite frankly I’ve never worked so hard… but it is a different type of work… it was easier when I worked in London even with commuting – I had ‘me’ time then… I certainly don’t get that now!!
