Seven years ago today, June 21st 2007, we brought the boys over to France to see for the first time, the place that was going to be their new home.
They were rather small and the house and gite to be were rather different then.
On that day, for the first time, we allowed the boys to head off for a short walk in an unknown place, totally on their own, down the public footpath that leads from our back gate. We told them to stay together, to not go far and to not be too long. It seemed like an absolute age that they were gone but they came back safe and sound and agreed they would like to live here! It was the beginning of a great seven years.
