One of our neighbours in France said to me a while ago that when the time is right to come to France you will know it in your heart and you will have to follow your heart. My heart has been clear that I am going to live in France for several months but it has not been totally sure about when exactly and so although I have been telling everyone that I am leaving soon I have not given my notice in at work in a formal sense. Today my heart became clear. A couple of mildly irritating things happened at work but nothing out of the ordinary. However, this prompted me to think and this time the answer appeared as if a final switch somewhere in the back of my mind had suddenly been turned on. It happened sometime this evening and when I spoke to Ian tonight I told him that I am going to hand in my notice when we get back from France. His heart had also been telling him the same. The only thing I don't know yet is whether I will go at the end of September or October and to decide this we need to have some serious logistical thinking when we are away but the final commitment in my head has been made and I will not go back on it. I am sure I will have plenty of doubts and second thoughts and worries but my heart has decided.
