Desperately searching for a Life in France type blog that had even the slightest reference to Citroen 2CVs, Mushrooms or Lingerie, I luckily stumbled upon St Bloggie de Riviere!
Now, I’ll freely admit that there’s not many posts on the above subjects (in fact, there are none at all! An omission that I’m sure will soon be rectified.)
But, there are plenty of lovely posts about a real life in France (Sarah lives near Montpellier with her two boys (13,8) and a cat called Ulysse.)
And really, anyone with a cat named Ulysse must have something interesting to say!
And Sarah certainly does. I’ve got to admit, I’m bound to like anyone who buys a wine because of its name… Arse, in this case (and could I have a case of that, please!)
That post is also about Match – the dating service. As Sarah mentions in the comments for that post… “One of the advantages of divorce is that you get to explore the crumpet that’s out there just waiting to be warmed and buttered…”
Hmmmm. I do hope this review isn’t going to degenerate into all that smutty stuff!
So, I’ll not mention that Transparent Dress and the flash of Blue Knickers in the post about Dodgy Neighbours then.
Instead, I’ll try to find some more typical posts that better describe this blog.
Sarah admits to once owning a Jumpsuit and, having not done the decent thing and burnt it, is now glad that they’re coming back into fashion (my dear, in some parts of Essex, they’ve never gone out of fashion!)
And what, do I hear you ask, does all this have to do with life in France?
Well, everything. Sarah has been in France for twenty one years and tells it as it is.
And so, I leave you with a post that actually mentions lingerie (although no 2CVs or mushrooms in sight), Get ’em off!
If you want to find out what life is like for a divorced mother of two who has a personal flea market shopper, head over to St Bloggie de Riviere! and take a look.
All the best
