Is-That-Billinge-Lump

A unique memoir.

About the book: It seemed like a good idea at the time. When British healthcare failed her ageing mother, eccentric writer Tottie decided to uproot her dysfunctional family and try again in France. But was France ready for her depressed dipsomaniac brother, her nearly nonogenarian mother who enjoyed saying “bum” and “bugger” and her…

Through These Doors - The Manoir at Bout L'Abbé by Diane Condon-Boutier

A fascinating story.

MANOR

About the book: If these old walls could talk, would you listen? When a house has a story to tell, historical events to relate and lives to share, it should be given a voice; especially when the house is French and possesses a certain “je ne sais quoi”.

“Through These Doors: the Manoir at Bout L’Abbé” tells of the German occupation of Normandy…

Lay Tour Day France

I am not the biggest sports fan in the world. I know the basics of football and basketball. I would much rather watch college sports then professional. I understand the very basics of soccer and hockey, but don’t even ask me about cricket…although does cricket really count as a sport? Any game that lasts four days really shouldn’t be… Continue

It was in the freezer and we have to eat everything out of the freezer within the next four days or throw it out 2.
