Stephanie, Normandy, France

A) Came as an au pair to Paris (1969) met my future husband (French). B) Moved to Boden Boden, Acheron in Germany. Then to Sorrebourg, Rennes, Lille, Tours & Paris, between 1970-1998. Now in Normandy. C) Being married to an army officer made it difficult to have a full career, but now retired, enjoy living on the coast with children and grandson (for the time being). P.m. Hope you get this in time as the French post is so unreliable!! Not to mentioned the strikes!
