What I’m Into – May 2016 Edition

what i'm into May 2016

What an intense month May has been! I feel like it’s just disappeared and tried to take a few bites off me as it went. Busyness and loud children will gnaw at you that way and fray you at the edges sometimes. I’m joining in with Leigh Kramer as usual for a round up of all […]

What I’m Into – Spring 2016 Edition

What I'm into

Spring has arrived in England and with it hail, snow, thunder, lightning and bright sunshine, all in the space of a day. It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to join in with What I’m Into.

A Beginner’s Guide to French Literature

A Beginner’s Guide to French Literature {day thirteen}

I love books and I will read most things but I suffered through a French education that pretty much destroyed my enjoyment of classic French literature by making me read and critique Really Depressing Books (in capitals because omg the hopelessness). There are so many French authors though, both classic and modern, covering pretty much every subject […]

5 French Expat Blogs you should read {day eight}

There are a lot of French people scattered around the world, and a lot of us blog in English. This makes them, I guess, French expat blogs. Us expats/immigrants/whatever-the-hell-we-are have transitioned from the traditional French person to a multi-cultural hybrid, and you just can’t box us in anymore. We ain’t quite the real deal any longer, […]

What I’m Into – June 2015

  Summer’s here! I’m very excited, what’s not to like about sun and heat? Quite a lot, if you’re to believe 75% of the British population. Roads melting, trains not working because the heat is making the tracks buckle (but why? They have trains in hot countries, do they use different metals?), dogs dying in cars […]

What I’m Into – March 2015 Edition

Man, it has been an AGE since I last participated in What I’m Into! Since then (wow, it was October…), I have: moved house, found a job, started the job, become a student again, settled into a completely new routine with the kids, bought curtains, had a terrible cold, caught up with lots of wonderful […]

What I’m Into: October 2014 Edition

  Welcome to another round of What I’m Into! October has been a month of new routines, desperately hoping nobody would get ill and longing for a holiday breather. The girls’ sleep got all messed up and I got tired and frustrated with things and I’ve been distracting as a coping mechanism without realising it. I […]

What I’m Into – September 2014

  How long ago were the summer holidays again? Only one month? September has been busy, stressful and physically challenging, though thankfully we’ve also had some good news and great weather. Still I’m glad October is here and I can give Baked Pumpkin Cheese Fondue a try. It’s totally going to happen. Anyway, I’m joining with Leigh […]

What I’m Into – July 2014 Edition

July has been great! It has felt like a proper summer so far, with sun and heat galore, except when we held birthday parties and then it rained a bit. It has also been super busy, filled with parties and lots of cooking. And it’s not the end. Another birthday party on Saturday and then we’re […]
