A must-read. Muriel's whimsical account of life as a French woman living in London is always light-hearted and funny! I hope that she will write a book eventually!

What I most love about the blog is that it comes straight from the heart. A good balance of the striking differences, similarities between cultures and their beliefs. Also, the hint of sarcasm doesn't hurt one bit! Completely enjoyable!

I've been reading Muriel's blog for what seems like years, and still love it. I never tire of reading about her experiences - those of a French woman, wife, mother and business woman in London.

Muriel's blog bridges two countries' peculiarities with an extra dose of humour. It is a pleasure to read her entertaining, funny and insightful posts.

Muriel and I have swapped places. She is French and has moved to London, I am British and have moved to France. As such, I am greatly amused to compare her life as an expat with mine. She writes well, has many interesting insights and writes with humour and intelligence. Her blog is one of my top favourites.

I always look forward to a new post by Muriel. I am French and she is so right in all her comments about France and England and I very often recognise myself in her blog. Plus she writes in a very entertaining way! Well done Muriel!

Muriel's blog is always a great read - entertaining yet grounded in reality. For me, as an Indian woman, it gives me a peek into two different cultures from a woman's point of view.
