The blogger is:

-An optimist

-mother of 5 boys ranging in age between 18-3 years. In order of age, they are known as the Prodigal, the Face, the Prof, the Lips and Fatty.

-the parent (same mother, different donors) of a  ….I mean, THIS, step family – family A and family B (two elder and then three youngest)

-married to a Frenchman and living in France……….and the kids too.

-rubbish at French

-very bad at birth control

-lives in the village of Nowhere, within the French departement of Also Nowhere

-has a dog

-comes from a large family – 8 siblings, Irish parents but brought up in England

-despite all of the above, has maintained a sense of humour…….which occasionally FAILS.

p.s. These points in the About section, aren’t in order of importance. If they were, clearly, I’d have the’ -has a dog’ as the first point.

  1. Five boys! I’m a mum of four boys (no dogs) and we live in Hong Kong. I am much worse at Cantonese than you are at French, let me tell you.

    Nice names for your boys, btw. But difficult to find mugs and pens with those names on. “Sorry, Fatty, just take the one that says Jean-Pierre.”

    I’ll keep following your blog, if only to assure myself that your pain is greater than mine! 😉


    • Hah!Welcome on board the good ship Mumof5Boys (odd name for a ship and it wouldn’t be a good one and it certainly wouldn’t be shipshape).

      Thank you for your comment.

      I have tried to find mugs with their other names (Bugger 1, Bugger 2, Bugger 3, 4 & 5) but have so far been unsuccessful.

      I shall go and have a look at your blog just to see who is the winner in the Endurance of Greater Pain.


  2. Hi Fran
    I’m sharing the love and nominating you for a Liebster award: http://boybandinthemaking.wordpress.com/2014/04/01/parp-parp-ive-won-an-award/

    Here are your questions:

    1. Why should anyone read your blog?

    2. What are the best and worst smells in the world?

    3. If you could go back in time and assassinate one person, who would it be? and why?

    4. Describe your perfect mate (other than your real-life mate).

    5. If you couldn’t live in your home country, where would you choose to live? and why?

    6. Describe the most embarrassing moment of your life?

    Have fun with it!

      Boybandinthemaking – I shall check it out.
      -do I need some Thinking Oil (rose – pink wine and not a crushed flower petal – let’s be sure of that! Im too dumb to work out how to insert French accents) before I answer the above questions?
      -should I thank you for nominating me (despite the revelation of embarrassing moments – my mum reads my blog)?
      -shall I shut up and just get on with it…….?
