Welcome to my blog. A short history of why I am here : I was working in the computer industry in England with two small children Elizabeth and Hugh (2 and 4 at the time) and never quite seeing enough of them. I had a nanny, so they were well looked after, but never really profitted from my life as a Mum.

Just before Elizabeth started school, my husband, Ian and I decided to “jump ship” and move to France. We bought La Lohuas in December 2002 and worked furiously in the first half of the year to create three gites. This worked well but didn’t bring enough money in to live, so at the end of 2004 we started to renovate the barn at the side of the property to make two more gites. These were finished in spring 2006.

The major change during this time was that Ian and I split up in October 2005 and he moved out. I am now running the business on my own and am in the process of buying Ian’s share of the house and business.
