Our Normandy Life
5 move to Normandy, France on a one way ticket. Teen, pre-teen, reluctant 7 year old, brexit, pound at an all time low, language barrier, schooling and a house to renovate. What could go wrong?

  • The Normandy Road Kill 6 days ago So I thought I’d do a light-hearted post about death and what not. Now I appreciate that on the face of it, it probably doesn’t seem too light-hearted but believe me, I think you’ll enjoy this one about flattened animals along the empty roads of Normandy. Well let’s hope so. Before I begin,...
  • Do You Have Pandemic Homesickness? 3 weeks ago I mean you don’t really have to be living in France to feel a little homesick at the moment right? Or British. You may be living away from your mothership, where you were born and bred and you may well have been in exile for many years. But for some, even those hard core ex-pats/immigrants,…...
  • Lycée - It's All A Bit Weird! 1 month ago It really is. In fact everything that surrounds lycée is a bit panto-ish. The school bus, the enabling a lifelong generation of smokers and a kind of bizarre university approach but it’s not university in any way, shape or form. It doesn’t really know what it is and I’ll be darned if I know...
  • English Bashing By Brits In France 2 months ago Whoah there sister! This one’s going to be a bit controversial fun wouldn’t you say?! This is a touchy subject in this ‘ere household.

I love the style this blog is written in....the right amount of humour and interesting content. There are lots of good photos too which really add to the enjoyment of the blog posts. I look forward to reading more! I have been really enjoying the photos of the house renovation. Having been through an extension build I know how disruptive it is so it must be extra tough doing a whole house and in a different country!
