Bonjour

Happy New Year – in France we say it all through January!

I hope you had fun and a relaxing start to 2019.

I’ve made my new year resolutions but it’s not going to be easy with all the boulangeries and patisseries I come across in France. It’s pretty much like “I’m going to lose weight, I’m going to exercise, I’m going to diet… is that cake?”!

One thing I am definitely going to do is walk the dogs more. I sometimes opt out when it’s raining or cold or I’ve got an urgent bit of writing to do. Hank the Honker, the friendly goose I pass en route, has inspired me to go by more!

I’m very much looking forward to bringing you more great articles about France and all things French. And, I’d love to know if you have any suggestions for what you’d like me to write about, comment and questions… just hit reply to contact me!

Me, Mark, the dogs Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Bruno and Churchill, cats Winston, Loulou, Shadow, Fat Cat and Little Boy, my 4 crazy geese, Brad Pitt and George Clooney and the other cockerels and chickens and all the ducks wish you good health, happiness, peace and prosperity for 2019…

Bisous from France,
Janine
