Au revoir Normandy

Although I haven't posted here for a while in the years that went before I loved being a part of the blogging community and making new friends around the globe.
So, I wanted to let anyone, who might have stopped by wondering what was new in Normandy, know that this will be NL's last post.
No more tales of country life or beach walks or la vie quotidienne en France, now it's time to say goodbye to our beautiful home as we turn the page and begin a new chapter.

To use all the well worn phrases that one hears so often in the "media" the last twelve months have been a journey; a rollercoaster; of ups and downs and twists and turns but now we have finally returned to the land of our birth.
Merry Old England has opened her arms wide and welcomed us to a wonderful new home in the picturesque Derbyshire Dales.
To chronicle our new way of life I'm starting a new blog: "turning the page" which I hope will be up and running this week, it would be lovely if you stopped by for a visit if you get the chance.

Linking this post to the legendary meme Mosaic Monday hosted by Angie @ Letting Go of the Bay Leaf.
Au revoir mes amis.

My New Blog can be found here


  1. Maggie, a new chapter begins. and I will there following along. I know you and the senior partner will have grand adventurea ahead. Happiest of Days ahead, dear friend!

  2. This is my best Mother's Day gift today, hearing from you Maggie and knowing you have not forsaken us after all! Sarah told me you had moved but I didn't know where. The Dales are beautiful and I'm so looking forward to hearing about your new home and new life. Meanwhile do stay safe, be well, and know you were certainly missed!
    We should be in Devon now but of course can't travel much farther than the garden at present!
    My brother is still in the Languedoc and has no plans to sell up and move anywhere that I know of. In fact my SIL just just got French citizenship a few months ago. Their daughter has bought an apt. in Toulouse (she works for Airbus) and I guess she'll stay in France at least for now. They seem to be under much tougher lockdown than we have been here!
    Hugs - Mary

  3. What a WONDERFUL surprise to hear from you today, Maggie. I have checked back onto your blog from time to time to see if you'd posted anything. I'm looking forward to reading about your new life in the Dales (will have to look that up on a map to figure out just where in England you have settled). You've been missed and I'm glad you're back!

  4. Life right now has lots of twists and turns, many of which we never expected. Glad you are getting back to your roots and enjoy life in your new home and blog. - Margy

  21. Hi everyone,I’m so excited my husband is back after he left me for another woman. My husband was having an affair with a co-worker and i love my husband so much but he was cheating on me with his co-worker and this girl i think she use witchcraft or black magic on my husband to make him hate me and this was so critical and uncalled-for, I cry all day and night for God to send me a helper to bring back my husband! I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Wealthy can help get an ex-boyfriend back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it, then he did a love spell for me. 22hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he missed me so much, Oh My God! I was so happy, and today I am happy with my man again and we are joyfully living together and I thank the powerful spell caster Dr.Wealthy, he is so powerful and I decided to share my story here. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Wealthy for help now..Here’s his email,
    He also do the following spell
    Pregnancy spell
    Love spell

  22. Hey dear! Loved your post and allready followed your blog, i want invite you to visit and follow my blog back <3

  23. Hi My name is Rebecca.i just want to share my experience with the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 7 years with 4 kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had a fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me cause i loved him with all my heart and didn’t want to loose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster Dr Zuma, who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and cast a love spell on him. Within 24hours he called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our fourth child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there needs it… You can contact him on whatsapp +15068001647

  24. I just cannot leave your website prior to suggesting that I extremely loved the usual info you provide to your visitors. Is gonna be back often in order to see and cross-check other new posts. Thanks
