Heigh Ho...It's off to work we go

When we tell people we're moving to France the first thing a lot of people say is  'what are you going to do for money?' I've been self employed since 2011 and Andrew is in a well paid job that keeps us going. There is no denying that moving from the security of a monthly wage to potentially nothing is terrifying. Work is the one thing that has always made us hesitate about moving to France in the past. But the more time we have spent there the more we have realised business potentials...we just had to decide on one...or two!

So here is what we are going to do. Andrew has set up Media Man, a one stop shop for anything related to computers, technology and websites. I've lived for the past 10 years with Andrew's gadgets (I tried a one in one out rule but it didn't last long,) wires (we have boxes of them all tangled together,) and tools (which the boys now enjoy playing with,) and I have a feeling it is only going to get worse. Andrew despairs at my strange ability to break any gadget that I own, 'you only have to walk past it and it breaks,' his words but somewhat true! He's done an amazing job building his own website and the website for our joint business venture...Mini Monde.

Mini Monde we're really excited about. We're marketing it as 'services for children and families living in and travelling to the Tarn-et-Garonne region.' Initially we have Mini Hire, Musique and Play. Mini Hire is a rental service where baby equipment such as car seats, prams and toys can be hired and delivered straight to holiday destinations. Mini Musique is an English language music classes for 0-3 year olds with popular nursery rhymes, instruments, fun and games. Mini Play is a playgroup for families with toys, arts and crafts, and refreshments. There is so much we can do with Mini Monde, from English classes for kids to a variety of workshops in the school holidays. It's exciting and we can't wait to get out there and start spreading the word!

Have a look at the websites and let us know what you think. We'd love your feedback. Would you use our services if you were in the area?
