Hello & Bonjour! Welcome to Momo and the Gang. Who’s Momo I hear you ask?! Not one of our children (we have 4 girls), Momo is our Thermomix who we love dearly and can not possibly imagine life without. As for the gang, we have 2 teenagers and 4 year old twins, they are all girls and so is Coco the dog. On the subject of (moi) At first I only spoke French. I was born in sunny France where I spent the first 20 years of my life. I moved to the UK in 1996 originally for 6 months, then life happened… Met the man of my dreams 10 years ago… on the internet – yes, really! Nowadays, I have lived 48.3% of my life (estimated), I write profusely on Twitter (fact), blog very infrequently, married said man. Also I don’t like chocolate and I can wriggle my ears. How about you? What’s your party trick? Thanks for stopping by!
