And it wasn't long before I met Barney.
My plan of staying for 6 months was abandoned and in the last 4 years we have been lucky enough to move into a gorgeous house. (We were also adopted by a ginger cat who decided it would also make a nice home for her, Barney didn't take much persuasion.)
Have a wonderful wedding, celebrated on the island with the fantastic friends we have made whilst living here along with 80 of our amazing friends and family who travelled for hundreds of miles to our little rock in the sea.
Last summer we took the lease of a former lobster potting shed and now work together running a bakery.
But this summer we have a very important 'bun in the oven ' (sorry for the bad joke, but how can I resist..)
I wanted to start blogging as a way of sharing our next adventure with friends and family who live far away. I also wanted to keep a diary of the everyday things that happen, the things that make life so lovely.
