It is seven months since I posted on this blog. That is not because nothing interesting has happened but maybe because we are getting used to living in France and there are fewer things that shock or surprise. Soon after our arrival I asked a lady who had been living in France much longer, how long the feeling of being on holiday lasted. She said ‘Six years’. We are just coming up to 5 years. We still love being here and meeting new people and learning more about the french way of life but it is probably true to say there are fewer ‘Pinch myself’ moments and more ‘Get your lessons prepared’ moments.
Having said that, we’ve had two ‘firsts’ this month.
