Clocks went forward today.....
As expected, the viewers last week did not make an offer, so our place remains for sale.  And still the whole world tells me You cannot be serious. You want to leave the South of France and return to rainy old England?  My response would be Ask Tom Hanks in Castaway. He found himself in a peaceful, tropical place with constant sunshine and all the fish and coconuts he could eat. The garden of Eden you might say, yet did he want to stay there? Why on earth would he want to return to a place jam-packed with people, elbowing his way through his stressful, daily life?  The important word there is life.  That was where his family were, where he was born, the people who speak his language and understand where he comes from, his humour, his culture and what makes him tick. Also it's where you would want to be remembered by all who follow you in life.  So, the quest continues.  Hopefully it won't take too long.
.....Ask the clocks and Tom Hanks:  time and tide wait for no man.
