This is my new blog, A Green and Rosie Life, which is all about helping you live life that bit greener without having to build an off-grid log cabin in the woods or knit your own nettle fibre undies! It's about helping you make simple changes that together will make a big difference to our beautiful world and make it a better place for our children.

This last week has definitely been a week of catching up with friends and is one of the things I love about our trips back to the UK. My Mum lives on Exmoor but I had already left home when she and Dad moved so I have never lived there, yet I have many friends in the area .... thanks to the Internet. People who I have met via the Downsizer forum and Facebook and who became friends after staying in the gite, all live relatively close to Mum and the boys and I got to meet up with loads of them whilst we were there. We gossiped, we visited places together and we ate cake and crumble and cake and maybe even a lot more cake (boy is my waistline suffering now!).
Sorry for those of you who I didn't manage to meet up with this time. I will do my best to fit you in next visit. (Nicky - I was thinking maybe a visit to Killington or Rosemoor Gardens when I am next over?!).
Oh and today I am off to meet another friend who I met through Facebook. She owns Lou Messugo, a gite in Provence and is up visiting Normandy, so we are meeting up for the first time this morning.
How did you meet some of your friends? Was it through school or work, do you live in the same place or did the Internet play a part? Do let us know in a comment.
