Hello Everyone from Little French Owl

The first thing you need when you are thinking
of moving to another country is to find a home
you will be happy to live in, something on par with
what you are used to.
We lived in England in a brand new bungalow with all
mod cons, en suites, a kitchen to die for etc


So we went to the Pays de la Loire with great expectancies.
We looked at a few with the estate agent but it was the
first one we viewed we decided to buy.
 

IT WAS HUGE

The barns were that large we could have held an
acid house party in them, but all we could see was this
vast amount of buildings and all this land and say
"Its all mine".
 
With having to work to earn our living as well as do the
house up it took ten years to do it.
Hubby was working as an electrician/plumber - I was looking
after a large herd of Angora goats, rabbits, hens and anything
else that wanted to live with us.
It finished up like this
 




     The place eventually got too big for us plus hubby
had fallen off the roof and really hurt his back
plus I contracted Rhum. Arthritis so we decided to sell
up and buy a smaller place where there wasn`t
much work to do.
And guess what  ------  






 
     Another large ruin.

But we did find a tractor

 
But this time we did have experience, and before
long - just a few years, Little French Owl
emerged and with it a new era in our lives.


Thank you for reading this first blog of mine.
I`ll tell you of some of our animals next time.
a bientot et merci
