A very short review this year.
2022 started very quietly for the Magnons. Winter was mild, Spring was mild, then at the end of May we headed south for our home in France.
Summer was as all Summers should be; hot, dry, and with plenty of BBQ's, swimming, etc. With our only being allowed three post-Brexit months in France each year (which is plenty) at the end of August, after a lovely Summer, we returned to Blighty.
However, a true nightmare was about to happen.
It seemed as if everything that could possibly have gone wrong on our return journey; did. We broke down in the middle of Rouen, and the car was eventually scrapped. We were saved by the totally selfless actions of oldest son Kimbo, who booked us a hotel, drove and sailed through the night, and returned us (and a car-full of belongings and Billy) to Brighton the following day.
I cannot tell you the relief we felt when looking out of our Dieppe hotel window the following morning, and seeing his car there. Without him I don't know what we would have done. He was a total hero!
