When I searched the internet for practical help on how to get started on life In France, I didn’t find much, so I decided to start this blog. I want to try to attract helpful information from others, and equally to share things that I learn as I go, because anyone moving here will need some help! Since starting this blog I’m starting to stumble across a few useful sites, and I’m adding the links as I find them.

I moved to France with my daughter a week before the wedding to my french husband Pierre, who I met on the internet.  I was 32 weeks’ pregnant.

Pierre and I married on 31st October, Hallowe’en, 2009, and I was made very welcome by all his friends.  The sun shone all day, and we went to an impromptu Hallowe’en party afterwards, which pleased my daughter Jemima, 10, who had misunderstood and thought that the wedding party would be a costumed extravaganza at our house!

Since then, our new daughter, Margot, was born (in January 2010), another great event that went very smoothly.

This blog will follow events as I try to get the ordinary things right.  This is something I’m horrified to find that I’m finding incredibly difficult…

    Bravo and bonne chance. It takes a lot of courage to do what you’ve done.
