A Taste of Garlic

A Night on the Tiles - Poitou-Charentes

poitou charentes  A Night on the Tiles   because we all love reading blogs about life in FranceA Night on the Tiles is Stewart Paterson’s blog about working in a tile factory.

Because he hasn’t updated it for a few months, I wouldn’t normally include on A Taste of Garlic but…. having myself spent 600 years working in a Pig Abattoir (was it only 6 years – it seemed an awful lot longer!)

I felt that I had to let people know that sometimes there is more to living in France than sipping Pastis outside a sunny restored farmhouse overlooking the lavender fields.

Now, I do have to warn you that some of Mr Paterson’s posts contain rude words -  please forgive him and try to bear in mind that he does work in a tile factory!




I have to admit to being a little bit jealous of Stewart Paterson.

I wish that I’d though about blogging about my day job when I started at Helga’s House of Pain (as the abattoir where I worked was known!)

And it’s hard to point you in the right direction so that you can get a feel for this blog.

You really do have to start from the beginning and work your way through.  Here, though, are some pointers to help you along….  Eeuw – vomit everywhere or The Devil Finds Work for Idle Hands or even… Late Night on the Tiles.

This blog won’t be for everyone but for anyone who wants a warts and all account of living and working in France – well, it doesn’t pull any punches.

If you’ve ever wondered what it is like, working in a factory in France; well, take a look at… A Night on the Tiles.

All the best
