I'm Carmel, an Irishwoman who moved to France for a year with my French partner, daughter and another baby on the way. Four years on, still here and still committing atrocious crimes against French grammar, I attempt to marry my French life to my Irish nature. I try to tell it as it is - to speak of the France I see through my eyes.
This is a blog about family, French living, a major life-changing move, a house renovation, language, food, wine and simplicity. Bienvenue!
