Bonne Année et Bonne Santé (belatedly…)
A very happy new year to all my lovely shiny followers – once again, I’m squeaking in right at the end of the month with a blog post… at least this time, there’s a good excuse – we’re moving!
I may have dropped a few hints over the year that there will be big changes for Maisonbussière.com in 2016, and now I’m delighted to announce that we’re moving house! We love our gorgeous village of Bussière-Poitevine so much that we’re putting down permanent roots here – we’ve actually been renting my uncle’s house for the last 3 1/2 years, and now we’ve bought our own beautiful house, less than 100 yards away!
(FAQ – yes, my uncle’s house is back on the market, anyone interested in buying this stunning house, message me for more information).
If you felt we were a little quiet in 2015, it’s because I’ve been running the businesses singlehanded, while Adored Husband undertook the necessary renovations to the new house… and what an undertaking it’s been! The house required a total renovation which included a full wire of electrics, (it couldn’t be called a rewire as there was only one cable in the building!), full plumbing to create 3 new bathrooms and one more cloakroom, 200 square metres of walls have been replaced or repaired, and stacks of beautiful original features uncovered, restored to their former glory and preserved for future generations to enjoy!
We’re on schedule to be moved in and reopening the businesses in mid February 2016,
along with another new addition to the Maison Bussiere brand, so stay tuned for more…
So you see why there’s been little time for blogging about fromage, when my life is filled with sanding, scrubbing, painting and varnishing at the moment, boo! We’ll be finished and moved in in no time, so normal service will be restored – and in the meantime, some lovely people have been kind enough to send me fab fromage things, including this priceless image – merci beaucoup pour le fromage!
