I'm Annette Morris and I've been "LaFranglaise" since I moved to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of southern France in 2008.

I live in a 200-year old house oozing more shabby chic than you can shake a baguette at, surrounded by vineyards, with an almost vintage 2CV in the garage for bouncing around the countryside in the sunshine.

I'm an experienced marketing exec and maker & mender of websites. I combine working online with creating art offline, urban sketching and encouraging others to embrace their creative side and learn new skills.

Living life as an expat female in a rural French village is a conflict of culture, values and language of surprising proportion... but I'm still here, doing it and (most of the time!) loving it.

If you are interested in France, marketing, sketching, living abroad, working from home, websites, dogs, 2CVs, food or wine then there's likely to be something in this site that's right up your boulevard!
