Willkomen, Bienvenue, Welcome….

I’ve been running a blog for my son, who is French born, but not French, for the past… well, almost three years.  It’s for friends and family, all of whom are far away, overseas and across the globe. It’s personal, to keep them as much a part of our lives as possible as we settle and grow in our chosen homeland, the south of France.

But aside from the usual ‘we did this, we did that’, photo essays and tales of how adorable our pride-and-joy is, there is a virtual mine of lessons and anecdotes about all facets of being an expat in a foreign country. And so, that is the purpose of this blog. Plus, I have opinions on lots of stuff, and my husband doesn’t always feel like listening.
