Places I like
Niort, S W France
This is a beautiful town about half an hour's drive from here. It's known locally as 'little Venice'. It's a really lively cosmopolitan town, with lots of lovely (expensive!) shops, and some wonderful cafes. Stopping for just one cup of delicious coffee is not enough - we recently took some friends on a cafe-crawl here! I can't wait to see it all lit up at Christmas. The little canals have lots of ducks, and plenty of places to sit and watch the world go by.
I live in France with my husband who works in construction and renovation. I work from home as an internet researcher and freelance writer. I have two grown up sons; they each have lovely wives and between them have provided me with four gorgeous grandchildren, a boy aged 11, and three girls, one aged 8, one who will be two in August, and her new sister who is just three weeks old.
I am part of an online knitting group which makes items for all sorts of charities, from preemie babies to animal rescue centres. Details of our group - and all the relevant info for anyone who wants to join us - is in this blog.
