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?

  • Who Are You Even? 2 months ago When you speak French? That is the question. I’ll be darned if I know who the hell I am.  I know for a fact that I left any shred of dignity, self respect and pride somewhere in La Manche, approximately 3 years ago, on the boat over. That fateful 10.30 pm crossing where my ability… Continue...
  • These Are Our Deconfinement Days 2 months ago   And not our Salad Days as the song goes. And now, more importantly ‘Deconfinement’ that is unlock the ‘lockdown’ as it is referred to in the UK. Prior to 2020 taking quite an unsavoury turn, the Brits had been preoccupied with arguing about Brexit for the best part of 3 years. Many a...

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!
