We recently whizzed over to sort the house out ready for the coming holiday season. I gardened like crazy and met up with some of our lovely new friends, one of whom is about to have a baby, due on 24th Feb! All very exciting and the amazing thing is that we have swapped our house with her mum’s in Barbados, so her mum can come over and be with her after the birth.
We made friends with Anne our estate agent who has got us two souvenir copies of Charlie Hebdo. Eric our gorgeous handyman popped in, of course to get his dosh but also to tell us that he thought our house was so beautiful and that he always brings his wife when he does work for us as she loves it so much. Finally, our last mad dash was to our friend Angelique’s boulangerie to buy our bread for the homeward journey.
We said goodbye to Valerie who is our agent in St Martin and left her in charge of welcoming our Valentine’s client, who apparently was coming to rekindle a romance with an Ile de Re love! We have no regrets about taking on this mad venture which
took real blood, sweat and tears but if you fancy a quick whizz over to an island of magic then here is the link– be quick it is getting booked up fast! Even we have had to book our own holiday dates in….!
