Is Your Dream Worth The Sacrifice?

A bit more than 2 years ago my little family and I moved from the UK to Mauritius. And I know lots of people thought “what lucky b*stards!”, but what most people don’t know is that this is a journey that Ben and I have been on since the end of 2003. So today I […]

Toxic Friends: Recognising them & Dealing with them

I’d never heard of the term “Toxic Friend” until a few years ago, but I understood it immediately. If you know me at all you’ll know that I’m a happy-go-lucky kind of person, I’m positive and optimistic with a glass that is always at least half full. I also have lots of self-confidence BUT even I […]

My Story. Warts and All.

I have a tendency to only show the happy, upbeat, positive side of my life. I don’t like to dwell on the bad stuff, because I am, generally, an optimistic, glass half full kind of person. But I think it’s important to share the scars, the wounds and the pain we’ve been through to help […]

What do you want to be when you grow up?

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” How many times has your answer to this question changed over the years? I’m guessing when you were little your answer might have been astronaut, ballet dancer, pilot or checkout lady. As you got older and you realised that people were not asking you what […]

The Year of No-Yes: Me, Myself and I

The Year of No-Yes: Me, Myself and I - www.SophieLeBrozec.com - Love the Life You Live!

Towards the end of last year I realised just how much I put myself on the back burner. My days were spent working, dealing with the girls, helping out with various requests from others. And I’d get to the end of the day and have nothing left for me. No time. No energy. I was […]

Dolphin swimming - An open letter to my 11 year old daughter : www.SophieLeBrozec.com

In 2012 I started a parenting blog, Franglaise Mummy, (which I’ve since retired) and in 2013 I decided to write a birthday letter to my daughters for their 1st and 7th birthdays. I continued that tradition every year, and although that doesn’t really fit with this blog I don’t want to stop it! So here […]
