House update

The old news page has been archived.

Soon after the last entry (in December 2006), we were informed that we were grandparents to a grandson! Hurrah!

Soon after that we were engaged in a struggle to prevent his adoption. We spent most of 2007 commuting to UK, which caused many cancellations for our guests - for which our apologies. Boo!

He is now safe and living with us here in France. Hurrah!

This has led to many changes in the house. Boo! Whoops, sorry, Hurrah!

Service update

We now serve breakfast in the room, and the room has had a TV installed to make up for the lack of our company. Hurrah! But France TV has gone digital without us - Boo! But we offer a selection of DVDs to play on it - Hurrah!

What else is going on

Carol has now gone live on the web with her Leaded Lights enterprise, KirbyGlass. If you might like to purchase a memento of your stay with us, you should have a look at the site, to get an idea of what is available.

Back soon ...
