So...I thought it was about time I started this blog I have been talking about for so long. We have been here two months today and what a whirlwind it has been so far. Guests coming and going at the apartment, bread making, jam making, buying chickens, tending vines setting up our veg patch, loads of gardening and trying to set up the day to day - phones, internet, residency, job. All under the blazing sun (hottest summer on record). We are well on our way although we have some way to go yet. The next big event will be the boys starting school, me starting my new job and the grape harvest for the wine. Watch this space...there will be photos to come!!
