  • A Tribute to an Amazing Woman 11 years ago Sometimes people say they are amazed at what I manage to do and they wonder how I cope.  I do have a very busy life, as I illustrate in this post A day in the life of a Mother in France.  However, I have the privilege of largely choosing the life I lead.  It’s stressful at times, sometimes I...
  • Water - Are we all getting enough? 11 years ago I was googling “Water” a few months back, looking for the recommended daily amount.  I was aware that I’m probably not drinking enough and wanted to know the facts on what I should be drinking and the benefits etc.  But, instead of finding the information I was looking for, I got side...
  • A Post About Gardening at Last! 11 years ago It's strange, but despite the fact that I’m co-owner of a Garden Centre and Landscaping business and have been working with my husband in our various horticultural enterprises over the past 25 years, not one of my blog posts have ever been about gardening.  The fact is, I’ve always considered...
  • French Children Don't Talk Back! 11 years ago I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the behavior of French children compared to British. It's apparent when living here that French children are better behaved.

Although obviously a very busy lady she has managed and shown how dedicated a woman can be to raising her children, being a loving wife and business woman, as well as running a home and living life to the full. She also manages to fit in writing a blog about her life in another country - a special and talented lady indeed.

I love this blog. Always written so honestly and in such an unassuming way. I don't have young children, but for anyone who does it would make perfect reading to gain an understanding of family life here in France.

Very inspiring story of an English mother in France. I especially like the part where Nicki shares her weight loss story since she has moved to France.

I love this blog of Nikki's. Its interesting, informative, entertaining and funny. I can relate to some of what she writes and find her personal accounts moving. At times I think she must be super woman! Well done Nikki and keep writing.

Love this blog! Wonderful insight into the ups and downs of a Brit living abroad.

When I'm struggling here and believe me, there are many days I do, I read Nikki's blog as it reminds me I'm not the only one and she's been through all I'm going through. This is my 'French bible'.

Constantly in awe when I read about Nikki and her family's adventures in France. Where do they get such joie de vivre from? This is the kind of blog that gives so much but doesn't need much from the reader. Always lovely dropping in on A Mother in France.
