A little, not so French culture.

One thing I absolutely love about this area is there is so much to do, as I’ve said in the past we have mountains, beaches, the city,  museums, shopping and concert halls you name it – we’ve got it. But every now and then, we veer off the ‘French’ way of life and become just a little bit “Middle Eastern”! I’ve […]

Best Laid Plans … I don’t think so!

Wow! I had no idea my post from last night would receive such a response. I had a couple of messages here at WordPress but on my Facebook page, I received so many comments from women in exactly the same position as me with regards to odd sleeping patterns! So here I am, again, at […]

A week off!!

Yes I know, we’re not working, so how on earth can we take a week off? Well, we are busy doing up the house and we are now at a point where even though it’s far from finished, it’s livable and we were feeling ready for a break or at least a couple of days […]

Bucket List is shrinking!

Well, we’ve just got over the Easter weekend here in the South of France. Is it different to Easter in the UK? A little maybe, the first thing that is definitely amiss over here, are Hot Cross Buns! Having worked for Marks & Spencer in the past, Hot Cross Buns were something that I was […]

Service, what service!

I thought I would introduce you to a side of living in France that some of you may not know about. Unfortunately, I don’t have many photos that relate to this subject so I’ll drop some others taken on a recent trip to Paris, just to break up the post!! I want to introduce you […]

A hiatus … TTFN

I haven’t written a post for so long, we’ve been rather busy… … It seems that since we lost Charlie, as much as we loved him and miss him, we’ve found ourselves with so much more time on our hands. We’ve now fallen into a rather pleasant, yet exhausting Sunday afternoon routine. Our friends, here […]

Ouch! Root Canal a la francaise!

What did I do today? Well, a couple of hours in the dentist’s chair, that’s what! I can certainly think of more enjoyable ways to spend my Thursday morning. You must excuse me as I don’t have any apt photos to go with this post! At least I didn’t have to go to the hairdressers. […]

The People of Montpellier

Before you start reading this, I must warn you there is an overload of photos at the end … he he!!! The people from Montpellier are called Montpellierains or Montpelleriennes. I speak relatively good French but even for me I’ve found these two words a little bit of a mouthful, there is a fair bit of […]

Bumper Edition!

I’m on my own!!! The Hubster has gone to see a friend and so I’m going to bore the pants off you! Sorry but I have a backlog of photos that I want to share! You’ll have got the feeling, by now, that we are really enjoying Montpellier. It is such a vibrant city, although […]
