Bonne Année! Depending on where you are, you might have already celebrated (hope your headache is not too bad this morning!), you might be about to celebrate (that’s us!) or you might still be in preparation mode.
I’m sitting in our little house in the South West of France drinking pink bubbles and eating gougères cooked in a toaster oven (see! it IS possible!) and watching Neil prepare roasted Cornish hens for our dinner (also in the toaster oven – you gotta have faith!). Later, I’m hoping to get out and listen to our local church bells at midnight (they are charming anytime, I am hoping they do something special for le réveillon!). No, not exactly the wildest of plans but you know what? That’s totally ok. 2014 was kind of a wild (busy!) ride and I am looking forward to some clarity (and calm) in 2015. In March it will be 20 years since I left Australia and moved to Paris (on a one way ticket!) and in August it will be 15 years since I moved to Canada which I can hardly believe. So, some milestones to celebrate. 2015, I’m ready for you!
Thank you for reading and your continued support. Wishing you health and happiness in 2015.
Mardi (and Neil)
