An Anniversay

For us, May is a month of annversaries.

It is two years today since we arrived to live in France. Almost everything we owned arrived in the back of a truck after being bought here from London, and as well as trying to fit everything into the house we started the process of trying fit in to life in a small French town.

Both processes are going variously well: we join in many of the things that happen (even if we aren't sure what's happening some of the time) and with the kitchen properly underway we will soon be unpacking some of the boxes.

Looking at the photos taken at the time has really bought home to me how much we have achieved so far. We may not have many photos of the day, but the memories are crystal clear.

PS This is the second time we have posted this. Blogger has had serious problems for a couple of days, and all comments have been lost.

And what a fantastic adventure it has been as we live vicariously thru your exploits.

Vicarious - now there's an interesting word you don't get to use too often.
vi·car·i·ous (v-kâr-s, -kr-, v-)
adj.
1. Felt or undergone as if one were taking part in the experience or feelings of another

Congratulations. It's been fun reading about it. I think we're due to make an inspection tour.

And Andres, I read so many blogs that the word "vicarious" pops into my mind way too often!
