Lydia’s France - Limousin

limousin  Lydias France   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceLydia’s France is still quite a young blog.

However, there is enough substance there for me to be able to review it and certainly enough for it to be worth a visit or two.

Lydia writes very thoughtfully (as befits someone who is working on her first novel) about old France, food and her daily life.  Take a look at A Gentle Giant to see what I mean.

In the same genre, I also liked A Mother’s Lot.  That’s a post that everyone should read, the next time they think they are hard done by!




As a writer, Lydia finds Inspiration from old junk and explains why she writes even though she suffers the doubts that all writers (all artists?) suffer – Thou shalt not compare thyself to others.

Lydia works in a French Nursing Home and when she’s not working, she has her children to look after.

Speaking of which, Lydia has something to say about Kids in the kitchen.  Now, what a good idea; making crème brûlée in a cereal bowl!  I bet Gordon Ramsay is kicking himself that he didn’t think of that one first!

Speaking of food, I laughed till I nearly wet myself when I read Steak Tartare!

Maybe that’s why Lydia wrote the post about rubbing garlic on your bottom if you’ve got worms?

In My Children’s Perspective, Lydia lets us know what her children think.  All I can say is that anyone called Cedric or Sebastian probably deserve a good lump of Garlic up the bum (Rupert in England, as well!) – but, sorry kids, you’re wrong about the Moules (my favourite food of all time, as well as Steak Tartare, that’s also my favourite food of all time!)

But I could natter on about Lydia’s France all day long, and that would never do!

So, I suggest you pop over and take a look for yourself.

Me, well getting back to the Worms/Garlic thing, I’m trying to work up the courage to ask “Once they’re finished, do they wash the garlic and use it again or is it just thrown away?”

All the best
