Lets talk about the mother-daughter relationship. This coming Sunday is Mothers Day in Mauritius and in France, and it’s the day our family celebrates my mum, my mother-in-law and me.

Last year we had a great idea – we would spend 2 months in Europe this summer (well summer in the northern hemisphere) seeing friends and family in the UK, France and Ireland. We had 70th birthday parties to attend and new babies to meet. And it had been nearly 2 years since we left […]
