Bonjour and bienvenue!
First of all thank you to everyone who has emailed questions about buying property in France – I’ve replied to you all and I hope it helps! This is a new service – our “Ask the Experts” section in TGLF magazine – whether it’s buying a home, financial advice, foreign currency, renovation, anything to do with life in France, we’ll try to help you if you have a question. We have a lot more practical advice coming up in the magazine and expat stories but if there’s anything you’d like me to cover – just send me an email.
Quite a few of you have messaged me to ask why I’m not writing about my day to day life so much these days! Well there’s a very good reason, I’m writing a book about my life in France and so all of my stories are going into that – it’s due out this year all being well and I’ll let you know more nearer the time. But to all of you who asked if I’m okay – yes I am and thank you so much for contacting me, I really appreciate it.
This week in rural France, blossom is appearing and my ducks are trying to nest (I push them off the eggs every day though, with more than 30 ducks already I don’t really want any more). I’ve been working on the next magazine due out Friday 4 March and it’s a corker – I hope you’ll love it as much as I’ve enjoyed putting it together! It’s free to read online
There’s a ton of great stuff on the website this week – time to relish the weekend with a great read about France and all things French!
Bon weekend and bisous from France,
