Settling In

(Nicola Dryden) #1

Its 36 days, 22 hours and 14 minutes since we arrived in France, so my blog counter tells me. Am I surviving France - yeah just about. As a serial expat I should know better than to expect a constant equilibirum of contentment until I have passed the 6 month mark.

It's my choice to be here so I will not moan but 4 kids, 2 dogs and lots of baggage in tow, I have quite a challenge ahead of me. I don't know anyone in the area, don't speak the language and for the first time in our

18 year marriage, my husband is posted elsewhere.

Hence blogging, it's a way to share my journey and to exercise my brain.
