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 Wild West Of Normandy 1 week ago Now, I was initially going to write this post about the British ‘ex-pats’ in Normandy and all that goes with that. However, following on from multiple tales of burglaries and the like in this region, I feel this post has a great deal of relevance and is more than just blogging fodder. Now with...
  • How's Your French? 2 weeks ago How’s Your French? The amount of times I was asked that when we first arrived – I cannot begin to tell you! Invariably it was asked by someone who had very little French. Although this information was only volunteered after I had to explain my level of language ability. Like ‘French’ was a...
  • Master Normandy Gives Up The Velo Club 2 months ago   No. God No! Actually it’s okay. I think I’m more sad about it than he is.  Prior to writing this blog post I was about to write about his velo club. About how joining a club as soon as you arrive, be it for yourself or your children, is a great idea. It throws… Continue reading Master...
  • What Is The Rentrée? 1 month ago You might ask? It can’t escape your notice when you move to France and it’s not just the literal translation or the meaning of the word.

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!
