And now it's September!

I seem to be posting here once a month this year. I’ve been very preoccupied with my business as eBay wants our announcements to be compatible for the app for smart phones. As it happens we had started cleaning up our older announcements before eBay mentioned the changes. We now have over 7000 postcards online!

The weather has been very hot for about a month. I spend most of my time indoors with the shutters closed. Keeping the shutters closed helps to keep the rooms cooler.

Olivier has finished his studies and has a job in the bank where he took his apprenticeship. He really enjoys his work, looking after business customers. He’s expected to visit them and he loves doing that as he gets shown around and can better understand how the businesses are run.

This September is the first year we haven’t had any of our children going into education of some sort since Christian started school back in September 1989. Dom is starting her second year of lecturing at Essex University. She and J-M love living in the UK, they don’t regret moving at all.

All in all we’ve had a good summer up to now.

Summer, what summer!?

Leaves are starting to turn and there has hardly been a day without a shower of rain or as two days ago a biblical strength downpour. The years do slip by and life changes almost without us knowing.

The only constant is online computer changes which are relentless and exhausting...

Coline: I'm sorry to hear about your weather. Having said that, I miss the greeness of the UK. Yes, it's not easy to keep up with computer changes. My eldest son does all of that for us nowadays using Team Viewer - all I have to do is watch!

Nice to see parents finally getting payback...

Coline: Indeed. It's been a long journey, but worth it!
