Welcome back to #AllAboutFrance after a rather long festive break. I hope everybody’s had a great Christmas and New Year, both of which seem a very long time ago now. Officially, however, the Christmas season in Provence ends tomorrow with Chandeleur, the French pancake day; yet another excuse to eat too much!
January has flown by for me, with plenty of sunshine (amazingly high temperatures reaching into the mid-20s) and plenty of administration and gîte marketing. I finally got my file together to apply for French nationality….don’t hold your breath though for any news, it supposedly takes about 2 years! While putting together all the paperwork I listened to a great deal of music, mainly on French radio. I also listen to the radio in the car and it started to occur to me that many French pop songs are now in a mix of French and English. So as I’ve been amiss with my blogging recently and didn’t have anything new to link up this month I decided to throw together a bunch of my favourite French-English songs for your audio enjoyment (I hope!) I realise some/many/all of you won’t like my choice of music, it’s personal, but do have a listen to see what I mean about the Franco-English lyrics. It’s quite an interesting phenomenum.
Notice how I snuck that reference in to “marketing” the gîte? Well, as it’s the busiest booking period of the year I thought I’d just remind you that Lou Messugo is of course not just a blog, but a vacation rental for 4 people (and villa for 10 in July-Aug) where you can have a fabulous holiday. We have limited dates left for the summer but a fair amout available in spring. FInd out more about what we offer here: One of the best places on earth (genuine words from past guests).
