Joined 7 years ago from Charente, France. Last activity 4 days ago.




I'm one of the many hundreds of expat Brits living in France. I've always wanted to try my hand at writing, so now's my chance to have a go. I came across HubPages by accident and decided it's just what I need to get me started. After a short time, I'm already addicted to it!

No doubt some of my writing will reflect my experiences of being an expat, and one of my first hubs is about what it was like raising a bilingual daughter. Another is about rising damp, a familiar problem for anyone who's gone through the experience of buying and renovating an old French property.

I'm no spring chicken, so I've got plenty of lifetime experiences to talk about. I've always lived life at a hectic pace, and there is no sign yet that things are in danger of slowing down.

I hope I manage to come up with something that interests you. I'll try my best. Wish me luck!
