I have a french husband who I met in England and he lived with me for a while. Since we`ve moved to France we have mixed up the traditions and the things we like about both countries.
I eat more bread with meals, cheese before my dessert, no gravy but sauces instead, enjoying l`apero, wine with meals, small cups of coffee, hate carpets now, prefer shutters to curtains, prefer the peace and quiet, planning my shopping for the week as there is no shop down the road, the french tradition of kissing and shaking hands, no plastic bags at the supermarket so keep recycling the same ones, and like you keep loads of paperwork!
Still I prefer my cup of tea in the morning with my egg and bacon. My husband also likes the egg and bacon but not the tea! He now drinks more instant coffee and like me misses the English beer. He also likes my English settee, especially when watching tv, whereas the french sit round the table to watch the tv!
