I’ve recently become a moderator for The France Forum – a new forum which I can recommend (of course!) to people thinking of moving to France, who have a holiday home in France or who already live in France. As well as the normal rôle of moderating, I’ll be adding my own thoughts and experiences on living in France, helping answer questions on French legislation and red tape, smallholding in France and of course all the other subjects which interest me. The forum has been “open for business” now for just ten days and we’ve attracted a lot of friendly and helpful people. So far, we’ve 476 members who have made a total of 9230 posts!

I mentioned to a neighbour that I was going to do some decorating and he gave me a box full of Ochres and Oxides that he’d had stored in his barn for years.
I’ve started to paint the walls and it’s taking shape and it’s already become Saskia’s favourite room. I’ll post a few more photographs when I can.
