They always say you should start at the beginning. But in the beginning I was living in a 100 year old house that needed renovating, was unpacking 200 boxes and trying to make a home.
I had nowhere to write, my head was on overload and my life was in turmoil. The move to France was exciting but also traumatic. Nearly three years later I am finally back in the chair, surrounded by my books and ideas - and my blog is now ready to go. My rescue dog Jackpott sits by my desk - he's my greatest critic!!!!
This blog has been sitting on the shelf for twelve months, I've never done anything like this before so please bear with me as I find my way.
We will be living a French life together along with its ups and downs. I'll be recapping stories from the last three years, giving you delicious French recipes with fresh produce from the potager. I'm a virgin gardener, so we've all lots to learn. I'll be recommending inspiring books, blogs and we'll be listening to fascinating guest writers.
Next week I'm off to Paris for a day with my new bestie, I'll let you know how I get on.
See you then.
