A Taste of Garlic

A competition! - Books

books  A competition!   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceA while back (quite a while back, if I’m being honest!) I received a review copy of Norman’s Folly by Clare Norman.

I put the book on www.BooksAboutFrance.com and promptly completely forgot to mention it here.

Thus, a free copy of Norman’s Folly by Clare Norman is available to whoever wins today’s cunning creative competition!

All you have to do is write a simple limerick that sums up one aspect of expat life in France.

It can be funny, it can be sad, it doesn’t even have to mention Citroen 2CVs!

The entries should be posted as as comments on this post and the deadline is midnight Tuesday the 22nd of February!

May the best limerick writer win!




books  A competition!   because we all love reading blogs about life in France ‘Norman’s Folly’ outlines a process that many of us may have thought about engaging with: a lifestyle change in a new country.

Having questioned their daily routine in the UK and found it wanting, the Norman family made the brave decision to relocate to France.

Actually, the decision was pretty much made for them when they were shown what is now their rural home and took a gut reaction to ‘go for it’.

As author Clare Norman explains, the route they chose wasn’t always smooth (literally, in some cases, with regards the road that leads to their property).

And things didn’t happen as fast as they would have liked them too. But along the way they met a number of delightful French characters who add charm and warmth to this warts-and-all tale of change, development and growth.

It’s some time, now, since the germ of the idea of moving to France. But Clare and her family have embraced village life, integrated with the locals and created for themselves the idyll they desired.

This is an honest account of the pain as much as the pleasures of such a move and the sheer hard work it entails, along with the delightful idiosyncrasies of the neighbourhood and its inhabitants around the Norman’s new home.

    I am useless at limericks!!! Diane

    If you’re thinking of living in France
    Don’t leave it to Gallic ‘Bon Chance”
    On all those demands for tax
    write “I’m english” and send them all back
    That’ll lead them a merry dance !

  • By tommo, February 16, 2011 @ 3:12 pm

    There once was a man from the Loire
    Who asked “what’s the world’s fastest car?”
    Said those in the know
    A blue deux-chevaux
    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

  • By Emma Jamieson, February 16, 2011 @ 4:09 pm

    There once was a cad in Alsace
    Who dreamt he was Alain Ducasse
    But he burnt his choucroute
    and he frazzled his tourte
    and his flammekuche tasted crass.

  • By Jacqui, February 16, 2011 @ 9:22 pm

    There once was a family who set off for France
    To the land where wine flowed and the people did dance
    But the French ate funny things;
    Frogs, snails and cow intestines
    Oh! Just fill up your glass and give it a chance

  • By Adrian, February 16, 2011 @ 9:40 pm

    There was a young couple who lived in a trance
    Dreaming and scheming of living in France
    They packed a bag full of tea
    Jumped in their blue 2CV
    And set off to give it a chance!

  • By Katie Mac, February 17, 2011 @ 2:06 pm

    French eating times made her aggrieved
    her stomach was always quite peeved
    but at half past seven
    until nine – it was heaven!
    She ate like an expat, relieved!

  • By Roz, February 17, 2011 @ 3:21 pm

    There once was a family in Brum
    Thought it would be rather good fun
    To pack up the car
    and see how far
    they needed to travel to find more of the sun.

    (still looking though)

  • By Roz, February 17, 2011 @ 3:28 pm

    Te competition said see if you can
    See if you can get it to scan
    Write a limerick about France
    But mine will be pants
    Because I always try to get as many words in the last line as I possibly can

  • By Katie Mac, February 17, 2011 @ 10:31 pm

    The verbs remain unconjugated
    the grammar is so complicated
    Would you have a clue
    if you say tu or vous?
    Me neither, I’m very frustrated!

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 6:34 pm

    Its seems easy says Rosalyn to Paul
    Write a limerick about our life in Gaul
    Its not worth the bother
    to win the prizes and awards on offer
    When Piglet in France wins them all.

  • By Keith Eckstein, February 18, 2011 @ 6:49 pm

    No Paul

    Piglet doesn’t win all the prizes!

    The only prizes she seems to win every week are those for not buying a lap-dancing emporium and for not ranting enough!

    I do like your entry though!

    Although I should say that the slight lack of reference to blue Citroen 2CVs might be a negative influence to some of the judges!

    All the best

    Keith

    P.S. As a neighbour, I suppose that you have special access to the judges (who are, I have to say, usually to be found drinking wine at the little bar in Cournon at 8am every morning.)

    Now, there’s an opportunity for you! For the cost of a gallon or two of rot gut (Vieux Papes – have you ever tried drinking that stuff?) you could be assured of winning every prize for months!

    P.P.S. Lay off Piglet – she’s about to give birth to a baby Piglet and she’s in bed feeling sorry for herself.

    P.P.P.S. Thanks for putting the chickies to bed last Saturday – they were quite impressed! Although they did mention that you didn’t sing them a goodnight song? Shame on you!

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 7:24 pm

    Keef says write about an old froggie car
    the type seen out side a French bar
    the 2 cv is quiet cool
    the tool box contains just one tool
    but will carry four nuns very far.

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 7:31 pm

    Do nuns where lingerie? I dont know
    But I know a place where you can find out though
    to find an old 2CV
    drop down onto one knee
    and look up there habits as they go.

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 7:38 pm

    I think keef thinks Ive said enough
    Cause piglet is well up the duff
    try a 2Cv for romance
    then there wont be a chance
    Cause sex in the car will be tuff

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 7:43 pm

    The book is coming to me
    theres no one else I can see
    who write like this
    really take the piss
    and think keef! The postage is free

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 7:48 pm

    Tum te tum tum, tum tum
    tum diddly dee dee dum dum
    tum te te, te te
    tum te te de de
    tum tum tum ti tum bum bum

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 7:48 pm

    Bottle empty, going for another

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 8:01 pm

    Vieux Papes thats really posh
    I’m glad you got the dosh
    the stuff that I drink
    really does stink
    but it sure helps clean out the fosse

  • By Jacqui, February 18, 2011 @ 8:23 pm

    Oh Paul I think you should win
    I laughed so much I made quite a din
    From my blue 2CV
    Here’s a vote from me
    If you loose it would be such a sin

  • By Keith Eckstein, February 18, 2011 @ 8:41 pm

    I do have to say that if my fellow judges (all the old boys down the local bar) and I were judging this competition on frequency of applications then surely, Mr Chapman would be the winner….

    However, we (the judging committee) are also interested in alliteration, jointed couplets, narration, metaphor and onomatopoeia…

    Not to ignore iambic or anapestic meters…

    And would I not be remiss not to mention assonance and caesura as vital parts of a winning entry?

    So, I suggest that the entries still continue entering until someone wins or….

    Someone bribes the judging committee sufficiently well to make them forget their official duties?

    All the best

    Keith

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 8:46 pm

    alliteration, jointed couplets,metaphor and onomatopoeia
    Are not really words with which I’m Familia
    I just drink the wine
    Make up a rhyme
    and ignore words like assonance and caesura

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 8:48 pm

    I wonder if a book sent to me
    that’s covered in stains from the tea
    hidden under the bed
    the pages well read
    even if I get it for free

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 9:00 pm

    Yet another bottle gone
    down to the last one
    I really should stop
    have a day off the pop
    or start buying wine by the ton

  • By Paul, February 18, 2011 @ 9:06 pm

    C.I.S is on the TV
    so this is goodnight from me
    Ive had my fun
    but think I’m all done
    but tomorrow, well we will see

  • By Katie Mac, February 19, 2011 @ 12:31 pm

    Write a Limerick ’bout France, did you say?
    why no problem, I write every day
    sometimes I do blog
    ’bout my life with a Frog,
    all while drinking my favourite thé!

  • By Katie Mac, February 19, 2011 @ 12:54 pm

    There’s a town in the Pays de la Loire
    selling chips every Vendredi soir,
    wrapped up in news paper
    with fish – what a caper!
    and for afters, you’re served with a Poire!

  • By Paul, February 19, 2011 @ 1:37 pm

    Katies had a good go I admit
    I looked at and liked what she writ
    but theres no attraction
    2CV or nun action
    So win the prize? I would doubt it.

  • By Katie Mac, February 19, 2011 @ 7:08 pm

    To mention the car is a choice
    that’s open to each Limerick voice,
    but there’s lots more in France
    than a Citroen perchance,
    but you like what I write, so that’s noice!

  • By Paul, February 19, 2011 @ 11:50 pm

    Keef has a fetish, just like most
    and that is the point of my post
    to keep the judge sweet
    theres a criteria to meet
    fail that and the book you have lost

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 8:24 am

    This comp has two days to run
    and I am certainly not done
    with more limericks to write
    it looks like I might
    be having a whole lot more fun

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 9:03 am

    Some houses for sale in La France
    Come sometimes with pole for a dance
    You jump on the bar
    Swing ‘n’ sway, oh la la!
    While the guys all around tentent leur chance!

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 9:07 am

    In France you wear lingerie, not
    Bra and knickers all covered in snot.
    They have to be pricey
    Any less and it’s dicey
    To pole-dance and not get too hot.

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 9:10 am

    In Cap d’Agde you take off your clothes
    To a Brit this means ‘take hold of your nose’.
    The French don’t wash much
    And you don’t want to touch
    Grubby bodies where bugs grow in rows.

    (jk)

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 9:18 am

    Montpellier’s a town near the sea
    Where you go for some sun and a spree
    Cap d’Agde is not far
    You can get there by car
    And see swingers barely clad above knee.

  • By PigletinFrance, February 20, 2011 @ 10:09 am

    LOL! Have just read these, they’re so so funny! I love Sarah’s one with la pole dance and the guys who tentent leur chance! Genial!

    Still on bedrest here so life is boorrrrriinnnnggggg and lots of people are being nice to me so nothing to rant about! Move out and in with the inlaws in two days!!

    Take care!

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 10:34 am

    In Sarah it seems I have a rival
    her arrival was more of a sidle
    sneaked in near the end
    her limericks well penned
    Its now a run in, up to the final

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 10:35 am

    Our Piglet’s all two with the world
    A wee one in her tum is all curled
    She’s off out of Lyon
    Leaving lights bright and neon
    To a life in the country babe unfurled.

  • By Wendy Hollands, February 20, 2011 @ 10:37 am

    There once was a man who loved blogs,
    And garlic more than Dutch clogs.
    The interviews started,
    The latest prize bartered —
    A book about living like frogs.

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 10:38 am

    Last line would be better
    “To a life in the sticks, babe unfurled.

    :)

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 10:41 am

    I’m driving down now to see Keef
    my friends PC is giving him grief
    I’ll ask for a repair
    and while I am there
    Pinch that book, just like a thief.

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 10:45 am

    Sarah you cant change the last line
    when posted that is your rhyme
    you must write anew
    well certainly in my view
    its cheating and that is a crime

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 10:45 am

    Life in France is a piece of fruit cake
    You must be nuts if you think you can make
    A go of it here
    Without French or a mere
    Smattering of ‘Une bière please Monsieur Jake’.

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 10:48 am

    Dear Paul, do you make the rules?
    I thought Keef was the one, and his jules
    If I want to make edits
    I’ll do so with credits
    Cos that will make my rhymes more cools.

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 10:49 am

    Its obvious I’m really not bothered
    about this competition not pondered
    but a prize up for grabs
    I thought I will have stabs
    rather than leave the chance squandered

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 10:52 am

    Sarah you wrote that in a hurry
    about your rival you must have a worry
    the prize it is mine
    cause I wrote over time
    not raced in, in all of a flurry

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 10:53 am

    French tele is really quite bad
    A Sky box is def to be had
    Our dear BBC
    And fab ITV
    Sans them please expect to go mad.

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 10:56 am

    Dear Paul, I am not in a hurry
    About you I am not in a worry
    We all have a chance
    When finished we can dance
    And drink til we get all kinda fuzzy.

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 11:06 am

    French English TV which is best?
    Well to me I have to confess
    I really dont care
    the two dont compare
    I only watch NCIS

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 11:10 am

    Sarah I looked at your site
    the picture I saw was just right
    two boobs I did see
    out and quite free
    equal the left and the right

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 11:48 am

    Sarah I looked at your site
    and what did I see in full sight
    two boobs I did see
    out and quite free
    equal the left and the right

  • By Katie Mac, February 20, 2011 @ 11:50 am

    The rule of this comp is to rhyme
    ’bout an aspect of life at the time,
    be crude or romantic
    carefree or pedantic,
    Who wins will have written sublime!

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 12:01 pm

    The boobs are to grab one’s attention
    Although honest I feel I must mention
    I don’t think they’re French
    Indeed such a wench
    You don’t tend to find at schools events(ion)

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 12:11 pm

    French food is often quite yummy
    Although restaurants sell that which is slummy
    They buy vacuum packs
    In the microwave they them zap
    You eat badly, then part with your money.

  • By Katie Mac, February 20, 2011 @ 12:14 pm

    To live in La France is not easy
    for some – they will feel rather queasy,
    With lots of odd foods
    in their new neighbourhoods,
    not to mention that Voisin who’s sleazy!

  • By Katie Mac, February 20, 2011 @ 12:23 pm

    Would you like to live in a Chateau
    making pastries and pies and gateaux?,
    or would you rather the treat
    of running a Gite,
    Or escape in a little bateau?

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 6:22 pm

    rozinbrittany.blogspot.com
    Videos, pictures, history and fun
    The highlight of my day?
    A kiss from Kenzo I would say
    and seeing my sons new house nearly done

  • By Paul, February 20, 2011 @ 6:35 pm

    My last entry

    for today

    Were having a problem with our duck
    The geese he is trying to f@@k
    hes really quite small
    the geese they are tall
    he needs a ladder or at least some help up

  • By Sarah Hague, February 20, 2011 @ 9:02 pm

    Life in France is a funny old thing
    At times you feel you could sing
    In the sun it is great
    But those taxes, your fate
    Take the biscuit for spoiling the zing.

  • By Vivian, February 20, 2011 @ 11:36 pm

    Our Paul really is a cool dude
    to write limericks he really has stewed,
    He does want the book -
    liberty he has took
    With his ducks and his geese he’s too crude!

  • By Katie Mac, February 20, 2011 @ 11:43 pm

    There will be a winner of this –
    presented with book and a kiss,
    How wonderf’ly jolly
    to win ‘Norman’s Folly’,
    To want it is pure avarice! ;p

  • By Vivian, February 21, 2011 @ 12:01 am

    I think this site is moderated
    to see my post up i have waited
    Understand the delay
    Keith must be away
    but I really don’t think I’m X-rated

  • By Katie Mac, February 21, 2011 @ 12:08 am

    The thing about France is the wine
    and cheese, it’s too easy to dine!
    I’ve put on so much weight
    since joining my mate,
    my diet is well in decline!

  • By Katie Mac, February 21, 2011 @ 9:29 am

    Good morning to all my French friends
    I hope that this comp never ends,
    To the expats on here
    I wish you good cheer!
    What good fun to watch all the write trends!

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 9:32 am

    Start a business in France, it takes guts
    In fact, you should be really be nuts
    The French don’t like doers
    They tax all but losers
    No ifs, no maybes, no buts.

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 9:39 am

    A picnic in Feb is quite cool
    Not likely in Blighty as a rule
    Down south the sun shines
    It’s warm, and it’s fine
    In a tee-shirt though not in the pool…

  • By Jacqui, February 21, 2011 @ 11:54 am

    I too have a randy male duck
    And a goose with whom he tries on his luck
    He uses his beak
    Gives her neck a good tweak
    And climbs on her back for a @@@K

  • By Jacqui, February 21, 2011 @ 11:55 am

    Living the French rural Idyll
    Can sometimes be quite a riddle
    Do you kiss once or twice
    And learn to live with the mice
    At least we can till shop in Lidl!

  • By Katie Mac, February 21, 2011 @ 3:33 pm

    Now, I’m at the end of my tether
    today with this awful wet weather,
    but the thing about showers
    is they’re brilliant for flowers,
    they bring out the best in Nantes’ heather!

  • By Katie Mac, February 21, 2011 @ 3:56 pm

    Took our visitors in to see Nantes
    on the tram they were brought on a jaunt,
    We strolled around town
    saw the sights of renown,
    And walked where the old Ducs do haunt!

  • By Paul, February 21, 2011 @ 6:24 pm

    The prize is mine I can tell
    the rest got not one chance in hell
    When keefs on a dirty weekend
    lock his chickens up on me can depend
    and no need to pay postage on the book as well

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 6:25 pm

    The wine here is good and it’s cheap
    A pleasure to drink and to keep
    Rosé in the summer
    If there’s none it’s a bummer
    Don’t worry though, Carrouf’s got a heap!

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 6:28 pm

    It’s wine o’clock, praise be the lord!
    I think we are all of accord
    Red, white or rosé
    With some crisps I will say
    It’s something I’ll never be bored!

  • By Paul, February 21, 2011 @ 6:44 pm

    So its a lie that this is a con
    no deal has ever been done
    but you must see the attraction
    a winner that can do collection
    not having post and packing added on

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 6:49 pm

    Living in France is a doddle
    If you’re an employé, and toddle
    Off to work each day
    With regular pay
    And behave as a citizen model.

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 6:53 pm

    If you come here with all of your loot
    You must be as mad as a coot
    Keep some of it back
    Or the tax man will hack
    Into all of your savings to boot.

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 6:56 pm

    I never have visitors here
    Why not, I mean, what can they fear?
    No room at the inn
    So they’d pay for a din
    In a local hotel not that near…

    (tee hee)

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 7:09 pm

    Life in France is not all 2CV
    In fact it’s not all about me
    The French they exist
    Though they might take the piss
    Dressed in matching top/bottom lingerie

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 7:13 pm

    Right, now I’m off to heat dinner
    Beef stew that is surely a winner
    I’ll have it with wine
    Lots of calories, that’s fine
    Don’t care, I’m not out to be thinner.

  • By Paul, February 21, 2011 @ 7:23 pm

    there’s really only 4 in the frame
    to take the prize the plaudits and fame
    Sarah, Katie Jaqcui and Paul
    I think that’s about all
    now the winner Keefy must name

  • By Paul, February 21, 2011 @ 7:31 pm

    Post at 7.13 by Sarah was funny
    shes giving me a run for my money
    Don’t care, I’m not out to be thinner.
    could be a possible prize winner
    and the thought of a stew made me hungry

  • By Paul, February 21, 2011 @ 7:38 pm

    Theres one person that tried the most
    to attract keefs interest in a post
    2CV’s, Lingerie and nuns
    and all related puns
    it was me, but dont like to boast

  • By Paul, February 21, 2011 @ 8:01 pm

    I wonder if Keef would dare
    (This comp must be a night mare)
    ask us to write a verse
    some bad, some even worse
    and at the end his decision be fair

    I must say it’s all been a laff
    We’re all so incredibly naff
    Paul, Jacqui and Kate
    You’re making good mates
    In this race to the ultimate faff

  • By Sarah Hague, February 21, 2011 @ 8:55 pm

    Would you be a nun? I would not
    They cannot wear lingerie hot
    They’re obliged to be
    Demure in 2CV
    Whether it’s light Cambridge blue or it’s not

  • By Nick, February 21, 2011 @ 9:19 pm

    The first line has syllables eight
    The second too, that would be great
    The middle has five
    Which makes your rhyme thrive
    Then just leave your ending to fate

  • By Jacqui, February 21, 2011 @ 9:48 pm

    I’ve given the ole 2CV a run
    She’s blue but I’m not a nun
    It’s taken some time
    But we’ve written in rhyme
    It’s true guys its all been good fun.

  • By Jacqui, February 21, 2011 @ 9:57 pm

    To Sarah, Kate and Paul
    We’ve had good fun one and all
    But think of poor Keith
    Or Jilly at leath
    To pick a winner won’t be a ball!

  • By Jacqui, February 21, 2011 @ 10:05 pm

    The winner of this comp will be
    All happy and full of glee
    But when it’s over tomorrow
    I’ll be all full of sorrow
    So PLEASE Keith let it be me

  • By Nick, February 21, 2011 @ 10:42 pm

    One good thing about a Citroen
    Cheap finance leaves nobody owing
    A blue 2CV
    Or a brand new C3
    Just sign and forget all you’re knowing

  • By Katie Mac, February 22, 2011 @ 1:16 am

    We’ve had white, and rosé, and red –
    too much! we should now be in bed,
    Our stomachs are full
    now it’s time for a lull,
    too much hosting will leave us for dead!

  • By Sarah Hague, February 22, 2011 @ 7:29 am

    We were gutted when Piglet did not
    Buy the house with the pole-dancing spot
    She bought one quite bare
    Will look good with some care
    But her parties’ll not be as hot

  • By Katie Mac, February 22, 2011 @ 12:45 pm

    Our visitors have found France a treasure
    as they sight-see with us at their leisure,
    They don’t want to go home
    all the way ‘cross the foam,
    this country has brought them such pleasure!

  • By Jacqui, February 22, 2011 @ 3:54 pm

    Life as an expat’s not always fun,
    To Tesco and Adsa we can no longer run.
    But there’s good wine to drink,
    And a few we do sink,
    Whilst sitting together enjoying the sun.

  • By Jacqui, February 22, 2011 @ 3:59 pm

    Living in France is really a dream,
    I feel like the cat with the cream.
    The language I’m learning
    For Blighty I’ve no yearning
    Really, it’s as good as it seems.

  • By Sarah, February 22, 2011 @ 4:57 pm

    I’m terribly really excited
    The choice of our Keith is indeed mighty
    Who’ll take the prize?
    (It don’t come with fries)
    The suspense is quite making me flighty.

  • By Keith Eckstein, February 22, 2011 @ 6:21 pm

    Stop sending Limericks, Keith pleaded!
    A return to sanity is needed!
    I didn’t think you’d have the time,
    To tear your self away from your wine…
    And my expectations have surely been exceeded!

  • By Paul, February 22, 2011 @ 6:33 pm

    It is half-term here in the schools
    lots of life in the parks and the pools,
    with Spring in the air
    it’s a matter of where
    I can really learn how to play Boules!

  • By Katie Mac, February 22, 2011 @ 9:15 pm

    We’re on our way back from Guérande
    where we stopped for a Café Gourmand,
    Off to Mont St. Michel
    tomorrow, all well –
    then our friends sail away ‘cross the pond!

  • By Katie Mac, February 22, 2011 @ 9:24 pm

    So this contest will now soon conclude -
    on Keith’s website did we intrude,
    Good, bad and absurd –
    Who’ll have the last word?
    For thought, there’s been plenty of food!

  • By Katie Mac, February 22, 2011 @ 9:32 pm

    I’m logging out now for some tea –
    don’t think you’ll hear much more from me,
    getting on with my life
    the good times and strife,
    blending in with my French family..

  • By Jacqui, February 22, 2011 @ 11:44 pm

    Oh to be an expat
    Who lives in a chic Paris flat
    But whatever you do
    Watch out for the poo
    It’s all over the place splat, splat, splat
