I am an Englishman who moved to France in 2008 with my wife and young children. I work in the lock manufacturing industry. We came to France for the fine food, open spaces and to challenge ourselves. We have been restoring our house since we moved in, doing almost everything ourselves.
We are a very active family, who enjoy cycling, swimming and gardening, mainly to burn off the delicious food we also love. We make our own jams and pickles, plus we have a beehive for the finest honey imaginable.
When we get the chance, we read extensively and I like to keep abreast of the economic and political landscape, as well as trying to study a bit of art.
