We're moving...to France!

My name is Becky. I’m a slightly-freaked-out-at-having-just-turned-30 year old, married to Andrew, and mum to 3 year old Reuben and Jacob, 1. We currently live in London but have decided that this is the year to move our little family to the Tarn-et-Garonne region of France.

It’s not quite as radical as it seems. I’ve been holidaying in the region since I was 7, when my parents got together with a group of friends and bought 2 properties next door to each other. Almost every summer since has been spent at the ‘French house’, going to local markets, swimming in the lakes, village fêtes, and trying my best not to speak French! I therefore know the area well, and my parents have built up a network of friends who we are slowly getting to know, and who are all very enthusiastic about us moving to the area.

So why the move? We have a dream! Of spending more time together as a family. Of living more self-sufficiently, growing our own veg and raising chickens, spending more time outside and of course learning French! Instead of dreaming about the life we want, we’re actually going to try and live it. We know it will not be easy. There is the real possibility of it not working out and having to return to the UK, but we will try our hardest to make it work.

This therefore is my bedtime reading. Or more accurately the book I skim read whenever I can during the day, as since having children the only time I have managed to actually read a book has been on holiday. This blog will follow our journey from living in the UK to living in France, the highs, the lows, and everything in-between.

Come and join us!
