I live in a small French village in the Department of Charente Maritime in France with my husband, our five children, two dogs, two cats and lots of chickens, at the last head count!
Since marrying twenty years ago we have been lucky enough to live in many far flung corners of the world including the Caribbean, New Zealand and America. However, we have now made France and Charente Maritime our permanent home where we raise and educate our children. Why France? Because we love the people and the slightly simpler way of life we experience here.
I am passionate about family life and trying to raise a family in modern times with traditional values. Between us, amongst other things, we love boating, fishing, walking, tennis, nature, gardening, writing, photography, cooking and good food. I also love antiques and design, the juxtaposition of old and new. Fitting everything in is always a struggle!!
