Hard at Work

I'm practising my French by translating It's hard work! I read that French people are the biggest bloggers in the world. Looking around the web, I believe it!

Best Laid Plans

Mitchell's Cottage

Well, I should never have tried it. One post a day for a month was just too much for me! I do want to restart this blog though, so here we go.

2010 is going to be an interesting year for me and my family. With my son set to start school in 2011, this is our last year to do things together as a family before school holidays conspire to drain both of his parents of their leave. As a result we are planning to travel to France. We will first head to Sydney, then Seoul, then London, then France for 18 days and then home via Los Angeles and Las Vegas.

I have been rabidly consuming everything I can about France; the geography, the history, the people, the culture and of course the language. I took French language classes for about 9 months and now I am trying to continue via a book. It's hard to learn without a teacher, at least for me. I am the biggest procrastinator in the world. I mean, just look at my blog!

Anyway, I hope to talk about the things I am learning and interesting facts I'm discovering. I have no one to talk to about this, so my dead blog will do!
