Just to introduce myself - originally from the Bristol area, was living in Aylesbury when I left England to move to France and marry the Frenchman I had met as a student on my year out. That was in 1988, we now have 2 children (22 and 20) both In further education in France. We live in a village near PAU in the SW. Unfortunately I was made redundant at the end of December 2016, and at present am looking for a new job (administrative / secretarial etc), whilst enjoying the free time while I can ! Totally integrated in the French system, no problem with carte vitale or social security etc, . Just wondering whether I should apply for French nationality - never needed or wanted it till now, can’t really see France kicking me out !! But, who knows …
I love reading, and belong to an English reading group, (part of the Anglophones Pau Pyrenees association), I sing with the choir of our English church St Andrew’s, Pau, I attend a yoga class in the village, and I belong to a local swimming club. I love browsing in NOZ, and drinking wine !!
It’s common that English people like reading, right?
I wonder if you’ve met @Linda_Pailthorpe and her husband Peter who also sing in choirs not too far from Pau?
A lot do, many don’t !! One of those things. Just started an excellent book, so that’s the housework out of the window
Don’t think so, the names aren’t familiar. We could do with a new soprano tho ! And of course men are always welcome, never enough men !!
