8 quirky facts about the Brits (from a fully paid up French woman!)

Well, here we are, I was chatting to a fellow mum the other day at school and suddenly realised – as she asked me the question – that I have been in the UK for 14 years (or even 15…I kind of lost track!)! Bam!  
Life in Britain

Even though I still feel a Frenchie through and through I have really come to love my life in the UK. I have also learned quite a few things along the way.  If you are planning to come and live in the UK or if you are visiting friends, I reckon this post might come handy to you:

Beautiful autumnal colours in Buckinghamshire/Les belles couleurs automnales anglaises

🇬🇧 I love the fact that in Europe we have 4 seasons. I know, I know what you are all going to say with climate change (and the dreadful global warming) those seasons get slightly jumbled up and we sometimes have really mild winter to end up having cold Spring etc. However, you cannot miss autumn whether it’s cold or mild, with all the leaves taking yellow, orange, brown and red colours, the whole scenery changes and give you a beautiful array of shades. In this post I want to share with you a great little spot we visited the place for the first time at the weekend and where the autumn colours were incredible!

🇫🇷 J’adore le fait qu’en Europe nous avons encore 4 saisons. Ok, ok, je sais exactement ce que vous allez me dire, avec le réchauffement climatique, lesdites saisons sont parfois pour le moins confuses avec des mois d’hiver ultra doux et des printemps caillants! Toutefois il est difficile de se tromper avec l’automne car avec le changement de couleurs des feuilles et leur chute, c’est un vrai spectacle que nous donne Mere Nature! Dans cette publication j’ai envie de partager avec vous ma découverte pour une charmant petit coin que nous avons visité pour la premiere fois le weekend dernier et ou les couleurs automnales étaient fabuleuses!

A fun family day in Alice Holt forest/Superbe journée dans la foret d’Alice Holt

Last bank holiday in the UK (End of August), back from our holiday in France but still willing to be as much outdoor as possible, I planned a fun day out in a forrest just 1h away from London. My fellow mum and friend Claire had mentioned to me this forest called Alice Holt and we had not had a chance to visit it earlier. Our bank holiday was calling for us to be out and explore.  Let me tell you all about Alice Holt!
