A Little More About Me And My Life …

Well, where to start!

I was born in England rather more years ago than I care to remember and am the middle child of three daughters. I get on really well with both my sisters and my parents (and current step-parents!) and thought this was completely normal, until friends told me that this was absolutely not the case for most of the western world!

Hello :)

Hi everyone

This is my very first blog entry and about bloody time too! I have been meaning to start one for nearly two years and have been saying mañana, mañana, mañana ... well, here it is! Ta dah! Je m'appelle Claire, as you may have gathered from my blog title and if you are also getting a slight whiff of European, then you are right. I am an Englishwoman living in America. I moved here nearly three years ago and cannot believe how 'special' (and not, as my sister likes to say, 'special needs'!) I am made to feel for having a coveted English accent. I love it out here for many reasons, but being constantly told how great I sound is fab. Plus the weather takes some beating.
