Well, as all good things must come to an end, so too for this blog and my family’s life changing adventure in Paris. It seems appropriate that this final entry is post number 42, which is (as we know) the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything. So, as the dolphins would say to us before leaving our due-to-be-demolished-for-an-intersteller-by-pass planet, ‘So long, and thanks for all the fish’.
As I write this last post my family has already left Paris… and I remain here alone. Despite the beauty, the colour and the zest of Paris, it is that much less beautiful, less colourful, and less full of life and laughter without them.
Our time together on the other side of the world has been remarkable; it has been such a wonderful opportunity to spend time together as we explored, discovered and re-evaluated our place in the world. In the short (though approaching 10 year) history of our family, there have been many significant moments, though I think I can say in one breath, that there was the meeting of Sally and I, the birth of River, the birth of Mia, and our journey together to Paris.
I hope you have enjoyed sharing some of our journey.
To life, love, laughter and family.
