February Blues

Our February update

February is that month...The weather is usually inclement, its still dark and it seems a long way off till spring. Everyone is feeling miserable. Usually people start to book their holidays in the sun, but not this year..... Actually I have always liked February as I am a Pisces and its my birthday month.Its also usually has Shrove Tuesday and I love pancakes. There is always something positive to be found. Lets not forget its a short month too so we can pass swiftly on into March. We are back in the UK at the moment Mr H is working again at his job in health and social care luckily due to that he has managed to have a vaccination which is a relief. I have spent sometime off recovering after the hip replacement which I must say is amazing. I will be back up to full strength for the camping season. I am just about to start a temporary job to tide me over for a few weeks so I hope that I will get the vaccination too as a front line worker. I still feel so fortunate to be in the position that we are in even after Brexit. The campsite is an amazing place to live and work, ok so sometimes its difficult especially as most things are in French that we have to deal with. We try and work hard learning the language but its still very basic. It looks like campsites, gites etc are open in France at the moment so we are planning our return. It will be the first time after Brexit so there are some things we will have to do differently especially with the pets. Bobby has a French passport so that shouldnt change much. Digger has an english passport so he will need a health certificate from the vets. You can see what you need to do now on the defra website. I think Digger will need to apply for French residency to stay longer than 3 months !!!! One of the things that we like to do in the UK is walk with the dogs and stop off for a pint and a pickled egg. How sad is it that all of our lovely pubs still remain closed. I do so hope that they can open soon and that people will be able tocome on holiday. Camping is one of the safest ways to get away and like last year we will be working to make sure that camping le Dernnec is as safe as possible. We are hoping that the Cafe des Brumes in Commana will be opening this year again. Marie Pierre who runs the local village shop is crowd funding to open it. We have contributed.. There is nothing better on a warm summers evening than sitting outside the bar at the summer market listening to the live Breton music with a pint.. I will leave you with that thought..
