French Fancy - Brittany

brittany  French Fancy   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceFrench Fancy is the blog of a Londoner who moved to Brittany seven years ago.

And…. her Dad was in Carry on up the Khyber, which makes her all right in my book!

But there’s more to French Fancy than being the blog of the daughter of a famous dad.

It is full of well categorised articles that range from the Arty Crafty through Introspection to Youth!

I suggest that you start at the beginning with How We Ended Up In Brittany and then progress to the article about the Marquis de Sade (an all encompassing blog, this is!)

Most of the time (when not dealing with the wicked Marquis, that is), the blog details the peaceful life of its author who does admit to… “occasionally yearn for a bit of noise, the smell of car fumes and vomit on the pavement.”

Well, don’t we all – or is that something that only happens to ex-Londoners?




As well as the obligatory article about French Customer Service (isn’t that an Oxymoron?) and quite a few about the Open University, there’s plenty of humour in the blog as well.

Take a look at…. The Queen’s Part Time Job or the Child in Toilet one.

And, for anyone of a delicate disposition, I think there’s only one post about the Marquis de Sade – so, as  long as you avoid that one, you should be OK!

There are (at the point I wrote this review), 517 articles on French Fancy and, although I don’t pretend to have read them all (if only I had the time), I have yet to find one dud – that’s pretty good for a London burd living in Brittany but, don’t take my word for it, take a look yourself….   French Fancy

All the best

    Blimey, this was a surprise to arrive here and find a little resume about me. I was prompted by Mimi Pompom – it was her who said she had read about me on here so of course I had to check you out.

    This is a very good idea – to collate all these expat blogs and it must have taken a lot of research to find us all.

    Well done and thank you very much for all the nice words.

    Terrific, nice to see French Fancy profiled here… she’s been lots of fun for me over the past year… yup, it’s easy to sort of fancy her blog…
