Prepare yourselves for ten pictures of #vegporn from our shopping trip to @grandfrais at #Limoges 😍😜🥕🥦🍆🌶🥒🥬🍅🍋 Today we had to make our #fortnightlyfoodshop snappy as I had a sudden flush of clients booking in for this evening. (The eagle eyed among you will note that we have actually made it 2 weeks and 4 days between shops - but who’s counting?!?! Spoiler alert: me! 🤓) But the clincher for today was that we had run out of gas so that forced our hand into ending our using-up-the-cupboard-food challenge. We have decided the fun of no-holds-barred munching our way through France one #pain at a time has to come to a close if we are ever to get into our wedding clothes - so @grandfrais was today’s go-to for the most inviting, delicious-looking and affordable fresh fruit and veg that we shall be making our meals from for the next fortnight 🙌 We spent less than 60€ in here today and managed to pick up three large shopping bags of phenomenal looking vegetables - and there’s a phrase I never thought I’d say 😂🤷‍♀️🍓 ———————————————————— #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #debtfreelife #ourfrenchhome #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife #frenchrenovation #limoges #livinginfrance #cheapliving #blog #blogger #femaleblogger #lifestyleblogger at Limoges, France

I think this is called upcycling! This sad looking desk (and three of its identical brothers and sisters) was left in the middle house when we moved in. We turned it into the sink unit for the bathroom, using the best of the oak floorboards we cut out of both houses when we ripped the floors out. There are hinges on the middle panels which open up to reveal a hidden shelf. Best of all? It’s cost us nothing. . . . . . . . . #anewlifeinthesun #renovations #renovating #france #escapetothechateaudiy #workaway #building #buildingthedream #vegan #blogger #gîte #movingtofrance #volunteer #instagood #tourliac #renovationproject #reducereuserecycle #oldhouse #newhouse #vegansofig #goals #buildingahouse #buildingahome #youcandoit #beforeandafter #expatlife #upcycledfurniture #escapetothechateau #upcycling #thewilsontaylors at The House Between Two Lakes

Another creative morning at last Friday's Artclass with a lively mix of beginners and more experienced artists. There was detailed drawings and paintings of local villages, as well as first attempts at a Tuscan farmhouse and more local Mediterranean pines. I'm just finishing a video tutorial of the Mediterranean pines scene so I'll post a link as soon as it's completed. #paintingholidays #paintingholidaysinfrance #paintingworkshops #paintingworkshopsinfrance #paintinginfrance #learntopaint #watercolourpainting #howtopaint #howtopaintawatercolour #watercolourlandscapes #thisismylife #livingthedream #lifeinfrance #france #movingtofrance #lifeinthesun #aplaceinthesun #livingthegoodlife #travelinfrance

#Pizza so good we used to sell it as part of our #bristol @Airbnb experience 😋 Tonight @haute_vienne_gas treated us to his infamous pizza as a reward for digging out two further #potager beds at the top of the garden. However even after all that hard labour we couldn’t finish it... is this a positive sign for our impending diet which starts on Tuesday??? Hmm, let me consider this over a glass of rosé.

Been clearing the room and moving units in readiness for our joiner/kitchen fitter to arrive tomorrow. Please let him turn up 😬. Starting to feel a bit more like progress now, plaster is drying really well in the dining room, once it’s ready to paint it won’t take long to pull into shape. I just want to fast forward the next couple of months so that things will start to be finished at last! But Rome was not built in a day and all that. In other news, we can’t start our new petrol mower so........ sigh...... . . . . . #newkitchen #diykitchen #myfrenchkitchen #cuisine #escapetothechateaudiy #movingtofrance #movedtofrance #frenchrenovation #kitchensofinsta #kitchensofinstagram #navyblue #industriallighting #farmhousekitchen #industrialfarmhouse #industrialfarmhousedecor #interiordesign #interiorinspo #myhouse #mymaison #renovationproject #renovation #livinginfrance #ruralliving #somuchtodo #workinprogress #myhousebeautiful #kitchen #kitchendesign #kitchenisland #kitchendecor at Saint-Pierre-Chérignat

Well that was hard work 😓 Digging out one of our six #potager beds in 22 degree heat was an invigorating experience to say the least 🥵 but it’s done, and experience tells me that tomorrow that displaced turf will be satisfyingly brown.

We are waiting on the Camembert to come out of the oven... job-wise today we’ve started on one of the potager beds (1 of 6!) and it’s been tough going. I’ve planted 5 of our larger rose bushes along the drive and I think they look great. I’ll post a picture late on. I’ve also just realised my goal of introducing us to our neighbour and asking if we can plant a hedge 😀 to which he said yes so I’ll start on that plan next week. All in all, an excellent start to the day. 👍 Plus we have drinks planned in the village tonight with some new friends. What could be better than this 😍🇫🇷🍷 ———————————————————— #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #debtfreelife #ourfrenchhome #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife #frenchrenovation #limoges #livinginfrance #cheapliving #blog #blogger #femaleblogger #lifestyleblog #frenchblog #influencer #sheblogs at Bujaleuf

The floor is in! This is the bedroom and it took Andy no time at all to put this down. He’s an absolute pro now. The walls are painted, the ceilings painted. Everything is painted 🤣 I did take loads of pictures and I was going to upload one of each space but it didn’t feel right as they aren’t 100% finished. More like 90%. We are so close. Just the final touches to make. 🧟‍♀️ . . . . . . . . #anewlifeinthesun #renovations #renovating #france #escapetothechateaudiy #workaway #building #buildingthedream #vegan #blogger #gîte #movingtofrance #volunteer #instagood #tourliac #renovationproject #reducereuserecycle #oldhouse #newhouse #vegansofig #comestaywithus #buildingahouse #buildingahome #youcandoit #beforeandafter #expatlife #learninglife #escapetothechateau #thewilsontaylors at The House Between Two Lakes

With the sun out, work finished for the week and coffee onboard it feels like a good day. What are you all up to today? We’ve run out of chopped wood 😳😳😳 so are off to #Briconautes to find a saw of some sort. We have lots of dry logs in the wood shed but no means of cutting them to wood burner size yet, anyone have any recommendations? We’ll probably order some cut logs soon but for now we are going to try and get by with our current stocks. Frugal to the end! 🤣🤣🤣 ps we will also be going out for pizza for lunch, this is not frugal and I’m not perfect 🤷‍♀️ pps for those asking this is one of my fiancé’s resin jewellery pieces soon to be available in his shop @straightfromthepath_ 🌿🌻 • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #debtfreelife #ourfrenchhome #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife #frenchrenovation at Bujaleuf

Annnnd like a boomerang our applications for our french driving licences have been returned. Never mind, I’m sure #Brexit will all be alright. It’s been going so well 🤦‍♀️😂🤷‍♀️🇫🇷 For the uninitiated - this is because the office at Nantes cannot meet the incredibly high demand of British people requesting exchanges in fear that as of Brexit day (if/whenever that may be) our licences would be invalid for driving here. Now to frame this letter so that any gendarmes who stop me understand why I don’t have the right identification 🤔🙄 • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #debtfreelife #ourfrenchhome #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife #frenchrenovation at Bujaleuf

The very welcome return of the sun (and our health!!) means we are back to lunches outside and topping up the vitamin D 👍 I’m taking it a little easier today - I’ve had a full work week and spent the morning emailing the loss adjusters regarding my lost Kennett & Lindsell mannequin. I’m sad because I now have the time to make some dress patterns that I like, but have no dolly to hang them on 😨 I’ve spoken to a few people about their dealings with the removal company that we used and I really hope we can resolve this satisfactorily - as of right now I have an offer to settle for the loss that I’m not happy with. So I’ll keep you posted as to how this all works out 🤷‍♀️ • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #debtfreelife #ourfrenchhome #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife #frenchrenovation at Bujaleuf

The outside of our home has a number of ‘finishes’ - none of which are particularly great to look at... so we’re now working on changing that. The worst of all the finishes is an ancient lime render which has aged terribly, it’s crumbling and dusty, and sounds hollow when you knock on it! The greatest shame is that underneath this render lies the original stone, which would have been beautiful had it been left alone. We’re told rendered walls were a sign of wealth 😭 . Here’s me knocking the old render off today. Watch for the huge dust cloud at the end! . . . . . . . . #anewlifeinthesun #renovations #renovating #france #escapetothechateaudiy #workaway #building #buildingthedream #vegan #blogger #gîte #movingtofrance #volunteer #instagood #tourliac #renovationproject #reducereuserecycle #oldhouse #newhouse #vegansofig #goals #buildingahouse #buildingahome #youcandoit #beforeandafter #expatlife #learninglife #escapetothechateau #thewilsontaylors at The House Between Two Lakes

So after levelling our front hedge we are thinking it would also be nice to be able to see beyond this (1 of 2) great hulking leylandii in our front garden. We are thinking of levelling them off to hedge height so as not to deprive the wildlife of too much, and also to maintain the root structure (because they live on a slope and our house is on the top!😨😨😨) - what would you do? They do protect the house from wind and rain but they also stop precious sunlight getting in.

Bonjour tout le monde, do you have some sun where you are today? It did seem to start sunnily enough here, the cats were out bathing in it first thing, but it seems to have clouded over and I’ve resigned myself to french cartoons and coffee for the rest of the morning. • On the bright side I’m definitely feeling better and if this weather improves I might even get out in the garden and chop up some wood.

One of the great things about unpacking is that we have found all of our kitchenware that feels like it was packed around September last year🙈 This means that vegan ”bacun” is back in the menu and given how rubbish we’ve been feeling lately this is very cheering😁 For those interested - we make it from seitan that we make at home, we also make vegan meatballs, vegan sausages and vegan “chimken”😂 When we lived in London and Bristol we were vegan - I think I was vegan for about 6 years and my partner around 4. Bristol is a great place to be plant based, there was soooo much choice everywhere and exclusively vegan restaurants. We were kids in a sweet shop. Now however in the Limousin we are slightly less well catered for 😂 and as a result I have decided to transition to vegetarianism again (which I was for many years prior to veganism). This has been a huge decision for us both, (and I think my partner will go back to veganism soon) but for now, while I try to adjust my diet and eat better for my body and health I’m going to stick to vegetarianism - as my vegan diet tended to be very carb-heavy and I really struggled to lose weight on it. But that’s not until next week... for now please excuse me while I go and fill my face with a home made bread “bacun” sandwich #ironynotlostonme 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #ourstreet #upourstreet #ourneighbourhood #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife at Bujaleuf

I've been feeling bad about the fact that I haven't been posting much lately on this account OR on my blog. I started "AzzyInFrance" as a coping mechanism, to deal with the readjustment of moving to France. Because of my editorial background I've been putting too much pressure on myself to post only useful information and helpful tips, but perhaps I've been posting less because... I've actually been a lot happier! I realise - I should be posting MORE happy things, and I'm excited and reenergised to bring new vibes to this feed (and yes, the blog too!) . #AzzyinFrance 🇫🇷🇫🇷 #Blogger #blogpost #movingtoFrance #livinginFrance #lifeinFrance #expat #expatriate #relocation #citizenoftheworld #dog #puppy #frenchie #frenchbulldog #petsofinstagram #pet #dogsofinstagram #French #France #newbeginnings #positivevibes #happiness #happy #happylife #Paris #ParisFrance #FindingMyself

🎶 It's beginning to look a lot like #printemps 🎶 😂😂😂 Well not right now... it’s pouring down out there and blowing an absolute gale. We’ve got the fire on and are drying our still-damp washing by it while we cook a late dinner. Today has however been constructive - my partner has put up the @ikeafrance kitchen rails that are SO useful for hanging things, and our vintage coat hooks - so the coats can come out of the wardrobe and little-by-little this house becomes more and more ours 😊🇫🇷🏡 • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #ourstreet #upourstreet #ourneighbourhood #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife at Bujaleuf

I don’t really want to use this little guy up but I also want to get cosy for the evening. So it’s fire on and kitty candle out while the cook of the house puts bread on to bake and I steel myself for another work week 😬 • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #ourstreet #upourstreet #ourneighbourhood #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife at Bujaleuf

After today’s french class we hot-footed it to #Eymoutiers mairie to request our carte d’access for the déchetterie 😂 deep in this cavernous and largely empty building (well, it was 20 minutes before closing) we found a charming lady who promised to create our permit in the morning and that we will be able to collect it from the dump by the end of the week. What service! 👏🇫🇷 Here’s a snap of Eymoutiers mairie looking towards the river. On a warmer day I’d like to go for a walk here, but for now it’s home to the cats and fire 😻🔥 • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #ourstreet #upourstreet #ourneighbourhood #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife at Eymoutiers

Jazz - and our intrepid workaways @joelsayers1 and Constantine - did an epic job today in a place that I’m not comfortable at all... Heights! Our ceiling and double height wall needed painting, and the edges sealing. We put some floor panels across two beams, on which they precariously placed a ladder to reach the full height of the vaulted roof. You can see the panels from underneath in the second photo. It gave me the wobbles just watching it, but my word the results are amazing. Painting the ceiling has totally transformed the space. Tomorrow, we’ll take down the temporary floor boards and the double height space above the kitchen/diner will finally be revealed. This is one of the most theatrical touches in our design. Borne out of necessity - a rotten beam that had to be removed - this choice has defined the entire layout and feel of the upstairs space, and the resulting double height kitchen below. I can’t wait to see how it looks! . . . . . . . . #anewlifeinthesun #renovations #renovating #france #escapetothechateaudiy #workaway #building #buildingthedream #vegan #blogger #gîte #movingtofrance #volunteer #instagood #tourliac #renovationproject #reducereuserecycle #oldhouse #newhouse #vegansofig #goals #buildingahouse #buildingahome #youcandoit #beforeandafter #expatlife #learninglife #escapetothechateau #thewilsontaylors at The House Between Two Lakes

O N E Y E A R we arrived in France one year ago today 😍 being half French, Barry and I had travelled to France many many times before. But this time, it was different. So, so much has happened in the past year. So many emotions. Tears. Frustration. Doubts. But also joy. So much joy. And love. Laughter. Happiness. One year on, we've celebrated with decorating. Decorating the house and making it our own room by room. Decorating the Jade gite ready for our guests in April. My super dad has helped transform it from an unloved dwelling to a home, and I'm feeling so happy about its transformation 💚 So here's to our first year of living in France. And to many more years or adventure 🥂 at Emerald & Jade Gites

Ralphy just not as into gaming as I’d hoped he’d be 🐱🤷‍♀️ - but seriously, today we have been spending some time trying to get a VPN working so that we can watch Gardeners’ World on iplayer. We have the complicated customised setup on the router as we use a 4G antenna rather than ADSL for internet and because we can’t adjust any settings on the router without losing our warranty we have been trying to create a virtual lan on my laptop. Turns out that doesn’t work either (right now anyway) so we are going to have to watch Monty on the iPad rather than the Samsung smart TV. • Bum. • I’ll go cut my fringe instead 🤦‍♀️ • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #ourstreet #upourstreet #ourneighbourhood #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife at Bujaleuf

Another one from our mini tour yesterday. We found this beautiful church in Piégut-Pluviers.

Today’s purchases - we’re getting ready to tackle the epic swathes of brambles at the property. Sadly Liam wouldn’t let me buy a scythe.

So who else goes to #Noz @noz_officiel ? I’m such a devout bargain hunter that I was excited about going here before we even moved to France 🙈 • For the uninitiated: Noz is a no-frills discount warehouse shop which seems to find end of line items from all over the world - homewares, clothing, food, cleaning products, some DIY things, stationery, you name it. I tend to really only get excited about the food, wine and stationery - but I’ll admit it is amusing to find @asda cleaning products for a few cents. • Basically they’re incredibly cheap, but you can’t bank on them having what you want, so if you view each visit as more pot-luck than serious shop then I think you’ll be managing your expectations. Oh and it’s a right old rummage so my other half hates it. I can’t think of anything better but maybe I value the hunt more. If you don’t like @tkmaxx you won’t like Noz 🤷‍♀️ • Anyone have any #nozwins lately? Yesterday we picked up a nice bottle of wine for 1,79€ (not this one, we purely snapped a picture of this one to send to our identically-named-friend), some weird caramel sweets which were a bit of a shot in the dark, and the biggest bottle of balsamic vinegar you ever did see for 1,99€. We actually went in for @lindamccartneyfoods items but clearly missed the boat. 😔 • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #ourstreet #upourstreet #ourneighbourhood #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife at Limoges, France

Today was our bi-weekly #megashop in #Limoges where we buy a fortnight’s worth of food (and wine) to limit our driving and general having-to-go-to-the-shops. After weeks of testing out which supermarché suits us - and our bank balance 👀 - best, we have returned from the fray and the cupboards are now satisfyingly totally full. 😍 • I know people might laugh but I genuinely have a spreadsheet for our food costs and we are currently averaging a weekly spend of 30€ each for all food and drink including alcohol (we don’t eat meat). I’m wondering if this is good or whether I should be working to get it down further. Do any of you monitor your food spending? How does that amount sound to you? Once we have the potager up and running that should help a little but I’m fairly happy with current costs for all shopping. (Minus catfood which is a whole separate online shop at @zooplus_fr 🙈) 🤔🍋🥑🍠🥔 • • • • • #movingtofrance #wemovedtofrance #ourlifeinfrance #escapetofrance #hautevienne #bujaleuf #limousin #nouvelleaquitaine #traditionalfrenchhome #countrylife #escapetothecountry #afrugallife #frugalliving #ourstreet #upourstreet #ourneighbourhood #frenchlife #typicallyfrench #livinginfrance #francelife #thatfrenchlife #pain #lepain #labaguette #baguette #frenchbread #boulangerie at E.Leclerc Limoges

So a year ago today this happened... the biggest, greenest lorry pulled up by our house in Bristol, and packed everything away to be put into storage. We met @anewlifeinthesun , packing and cleaning the house all day whilst the kids were at school. It felt surreal but exciting! We had issues with the solicitors (again!), but other than that, after months of sleeping on the floor and being surrounded by boxes, it felt as though things were finally happening :) The lorry left just as it was time to pick up the kids. That night we stayed in the local hotel :"have you travelled far?" "Yes a whole 10 minutes by foot!" 😂 A whole year since that day... I still remember it well, yet a feels like a completely different lifetime ago! . . #anewlifeinthesun #movingtofrance #bristol #newlifeinfrance #movingday #removals #tbt #ayearago #ouroldlife #goodtimes at Bristol, United Kingdom

We’ve been on a bit of an adventure these past few days, touring Haute-Vienne in search of a car. It was one of the big challenges we set ourselves for week one and it has been quite an experience. Our French has come on a lot lately but car-hunting has certainly stretched and expanded our vocabulary. We now know the French for tow-bar and engine oil for instance! Buying a second hand car in France is a very different experience - with a lot less cars at the budget end. But after a grand tour of Limoges, Saint-Junien, Oradour-sur-Vayres, Piégut-Pluviers, Saint Mathieu and Rochechouart...we have a car and we couldn’t be happier! We pick it up next week and it’s a big step in settling in to our new life. Have wheels, will explore! 🥳 #france #movingtofrance #emigration #carshopping #newcar #newwheels #renault #hautevienne #anewlifeinthesun #anewlifeinfrance #anewlifebegins #lifeinthesun #explore #exploremore #limousin #limoges #limogesfrance #oradoursurvayres #department87 #buyingahouseinfrance #frenchadventure #movetofrance #rochechouart at France
