    Hello to you all. I am yet another refugee from the “other site” My eyesight isn’t good enough any more to stay there!
    I have lived here, not far from Pontivy for 13 years with my husband and we love it here.
    So pleased this site has opened. Bon courage! :heart:

    Hello there, Nice to see you here greeting everyone Withcy Poo. I looked in here a couple of weeks ago but didn’t have time to join till now – this is how retirement is, never enough time in the day to do all the things that I want to do :wacko: I like how the pages are set up and everyone is very friendly, much more personable than the ‘other’ site :-( Looking forward to good experiences.

    Hi everyone I have been living in France for 12 years now and Like most of what I have here. No place is perfect except for Lancashire ;-) I speak pretty good French and am well integrated in to the local community. I would like to offer my services to anyone requiring help with anything outside their French capabilities, or with any questions relating to living in France as a newcomer. No charge of course, but I do reserve the right to say no. Hope you enjoying your life wherever you are.

    :bye:

    Thank you WP. I must say, I really DO like this site;
    Easy to read, nice list of topics to hand, it remembers who I am (!!!!!) unlike Some Other Sites and is easy to navigate.
    And, Sorry, my green door has never met Shakin’ Stevens; more’s the pity…

    Little bio – here in 56-land for 12 years now, mainly Irish (I am native, He was naturalised years ago and the children were born there but are now taking French citizenship). Three cats, a guinea pig and a tree business.
    Some of you might know me as ‘The Wicklow Wench’……. ;-)

    Hey there Seahorse – This is Cheekiweeki here – didn’t know there were any Seahorses in ole Wicklow Town! Bet you didn’t know that there was a Cheekiweeki there either? :yahoo: I see you joined in April but, only today at 13:10 I got a little email with your message on it……………. must be that UnitingFairy or WitchyPoo getting us together. Anyway just thought I’d say hello, seeing as we are both from Wicklow. I lived just south of the town in Blainroe and we came over here in 2007……. my one regret is that my French language is not what I would have expected after 7 years, but we get by. Love living here.

    Hi Cheekiweeki. Delgany girl myself, actually, but left ther over 20 years ago. Les Enfants were born in Dublin and Galway when I went back for a short spell, but they were only bairns when they came over her, so they are perfectly ‘bi-langue’ and I am not bad either…..comes of having to speak french every day to them or clients….
    Thanks for the heads up. Like I said, a really friendly site !

    Hi Everyone,
    Stumbled upon this site and thought I’d join as the other (AI) has seriously gone down hill, never mind.
    Now going to find my way around this site, seems straight forward.
    Thanks for letting me join. :yahoo:

    Hello to all,

    Stumbled upon the site and decided to join as we are considering moving to Brittany. The site looks like it could be very helpful.

    Hi all I’m another immigrant from that which shall not be mentioned and am gradually participating and having an input – it’s a very good site and easy to use, even for an old bird like me.

    We’ve been in France for 20 years and in Brittany for 6 of those (Maine et Loire before that) now in our 4th house in France, two of which total renovations (you know the sort, one room, ruin next door, furniture outside under a tarp, no electric for 18 months) one just needed a bit of modernisation and an extension and this current one was a partial renovation.

    We’re between Rohan and Loudéac, have the house on the market to buy another cheaper doer upper for another project and to release capital to fill our lives with all the things we want to do, as I feel it’s whizzing past!! (We’re no 71 & 78)

    Nice to meet you all.

    Hello again! I posted rather quickly due to being in a hurry then I noticed several typos! I don’t see an edit key on this site. Do you have one? Might also mention there’s no delete message either. Surely there must be one. Thanks again. :unsure:
    okay so editing has to be donewithin two minutesof posting. Okay. fine. thanks so much.
