Blog : Zut alors! dans Humeurs

Apres quelques années a Londres, me voici dans le Michigan avec mon mari et ma fille. Mon blog tout neuf est principalement écrit en anglais et couvre des sujets varies qui me tiennent a coeur.

A great American paradox

A country as big, complex and fascinating as the United States naturally has a few interesting paradoxes, and here is one I have been observing first hand since we have moved that side of the pond. And which annoys me. A lot. It can sound like a... Lire la suite ›

Fully conscious mum… at last

Becoming a parent has changed so many things in my life, as one would expect. Like so many others, I feel a constant responsibility to make the right choices and decisions, in all the areas that impact my daughter. I know I will not always succeed,... Lire la suite ›

J’emm… toujours le FN (excuse my French)

A few more days and we will know who is the next French president. I have to confess, I am getting some election fatigue. The past year has been rich in political campaigns and especially in election disappointments. Bar the fact Sadiq Kahn was... Lire la suite ›

#IloveEU

Every cloud… My lovely grandmother used to say “A toute chose, malheur est bon” which translates to “every cloud has a silver lining’. It really was her iconic phrase, and I have always tried to apply it to what happens in my life – I am... Lire la suite ›

We are all immigrants

So much to say, so much has been said and is still being said on this terrible Muslim ban. Unlike the “Women’s March”, I did not join the protest in the airports this weekend. But I was there in spirit and so proud to hear a lot of people had... Lire la suite ›

I cannot believe we still have to do this

What a couple of days it’s been. On Friday, I was taken over by so many mixed feelings – sadness, nostalgia, incredulity, anger, fear – while watching the inauguration on TV. I never watch TV during the day with Louise around, but I made an... Lire la suite ›

#Entrepreneusecreative

Being on a very long mat leave due to our move to the US, I have been indulging a lot into browsing Instagram when I have a spare minute. Being and feeling so far from my home country at a time of my life when it can feel so helpful and supportive... Lire la suite ›

Small, local, ethical

A letter to “my” MP…

A letter to “my” MP…

I thought I would add this letter to this blog. I sent it to the MP for Tooting, Dr Rosena Allin-Khan a few days ago. I wrote it one evening shortly after our move. Sitting on a sofa in a flat just outside Detroit, I felt quite emotional... Lire la suite ›

Stunned

Stunned

Here we are, Wednesday 9th November. Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States. I cannot even believe I’m typing these words. There is this bitter taste of deja-vu, a similar feeling than on 24th June when we woke up... Lire la suite ›

First thoughts…

Hello, Bonjour!

Hello, Bonjour!

Hello there. My name is Caroline. I’m a (very) French lady, with a hint of Britishness after 10 years spent in London. I’ve just made the jump across the pond with my English husband and our little girl. We’ve moved to... Lire la suite ›
