    How wonderful reading all this again Beth, I love your blog posts.
    What a year it has been in more ways than one and I am so happy that Aby is back to being fighting fit and Max has stayed away from the poo and smelly things, lol xx
    It has been a tough year for us all, some more than others but yes we have survived it and some of us have even still managed to have an adventure or two.
    2021 has to be a better year and I raise my glass to it being so.
    Thank you Beth for a wonderful read and I for one am so looking forward to the release of Fat Dogs, French Estates Part 5.
    Wishing you and Jack a wonderful, happy, healthy and safe 2021 xxx

    Thank you so much for reading my account, Lindylou. Yes, it was another action-packed year, one where we were blessed to have avoided the virus. I couldn't agree more with you, 2020 was an enormously challenging time, and our hearts go out to all those who have suffered during the past 12 months.
    I'll join you in that toast to a happy 2021, and thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your wonderful wishes, and support of my fat dogs. xxxx

    A wonderful retrospective, Beth! I was thrilled to accompany you (virtually and socially-distanced, naturellement) on your journeys last year. And I'm so glad your dogs are okay! Wishing you all the best in 2021—congratulations on getting out a new release so early in the year!

    Just finished book 5. Very enjoyable read. Max reminds me of my eldest son when he was young. Act now and repent at leisure was his mode of operation.

    Many thanks for reading book 5, Pam, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Yep, your description of Max is extremely apt. If your eldest son was anything like him, I suspect you spent much of your time patching him up! 😀

    I have just finished book 5 Beth. Loved it. I saw your blog info at the end so thought I would have a read. Lovely to see your year laid out in the blog. We have driven through France many times but not stopped for long. I think that may change in the future. I did visit the beautiful Carcassonne for my 60th which was fabulous. Thank you for letting us share your life. Margaret

    Thanks ever so much for reading my blog and book 5, Margaret, I'm so glad you enjoyed them. What a wonderful place to celebrate your 60th. Carcassonne is definitely one of my favourite places, I shall be visiting it again as soon as we're able!
