Noas' Libellule {Hundred}

Hey hey hey, are you all ok? This post is really important for me, it is my hundredth, yeah! I actually cannot believe 1/ I am still writing this blog - I am notoriously bad at keeping diaries etc - and 2/ that people are actually following me. Thanks guys! Seriously I love reading your comments.

So I thought long and hard about my hundredth post. Really I have. I made notes all week, and I thought that it may be time for me to tell you a bit more about myself. There are a few things you know, I love knitting, crocheting, crafting in general, I love interior design, I am married to the one and only M, I live in the UK. So what else is there to say? Well, here is my HUNDRED word

H is for Hercule Poirot and the little grey cells- I know way too much about him, considering that he does not really exist. He is my favourite character in books and on TV. And by the way David Suchet is the only possible Poirot. Now we are on the first letter and you already think I am sad, oh dear..

U is for U2 - One love, One life, When it's one need, In the night, One love, We get to share it, Leaves you baby if you, Don't care for it... I have a few favourite bands, but I have always (and will always) love U2. I suppose the songs remind me of loads of good and bad times (think teenage love and break-ups) and also going to my first concert (we queued for 3 hours) with my best friends, to see - considering my size - not a lot. But I did not care - I was so near Bono, I could touch him (no I couldn't)..

N is for Nationality. I am French, like 100%, and I speak English, 80% of my time now - and it has actually become harder to write in French. I have lived in the UK on and off for 12 years. M is half French, half English - So that means that our future children will be 3/4 French but born in the UK, and probably speak more English than French - which is a bit messed up but will be fun.

D is for Doctor - This is the title I use for work since I was awarded my PhD in European politics. To be fair I only did it for the title (when I discovered I did not want to be a Professor like my Dad), so I have no problem using it all the time. Always impresses people.

R is for reading - I read a lot, I always have but now that I commute - nearly two hours every day so I can live in the countryside and work in the City, I am going through a lot of them. It is great, gives me a chance to chill before getting back home. I read mostly chick flicks and crime (think Agatha Christie...).

E is for earrings - I have tons, and some are seriously big and dangly. My Mum did not want me to have my ears pierced before I was 16! I know! And when I did, because I am allergic to a few things, I got an infection, but it was the best thing ever (not the infection of course). The bigger, the better is what I say!

D is for dogs - I have had three in my life. The first one, Baron, was a black Labrador who was quite big but was the sweetest dog ever, and allowed my brother and I to ride him all the time. Then came Iankee (aka bébé Iankee, named after our trip to Florida) - a golden Labrador who loved eating and sleeping, and was useless at defending the house - and Léonard (aka bébé Léo) - a rescued dog who had a tendency to become over excited and very jealous (if men touched the women in his life). I really really really, like really, want a dog, but we don't really have the space at home. But this is a topic always up for discussion in my household.

So here we are, a bit more about myself, to thank you for your comments and following me!


  1. Happy 100th Post! What a lovely way to know more about yourself. I'm one the people who is impressed by the title Dr!!

  2. Congratulations! Wow, its so funny to have been reading your blog this whole time and not ever known these things about you! Like your commute, WOW! you have some patience! Also about you PhD, your focus is really interesting! My husband is about to start his 3rd year of his PhD program studying 19th c. British politics, specifically the Scottish faction. A far cry from my fashion focus but he enjoys it. Congrats again!

  3. Happy one hundreth post!

    I agree with Kristen, I've been reading your blog this whole time and I had no idea.

  4. Great idea for the 100th post!
    Peter Ustinov was alway the one and only Poirot for me, until I saw David Suchet on "Who do you think you are" and all of a sudden I liked DS, a lot!
    I once had a boyfriend who absolutely loved U2, couldn't hear anything else: I hated it for years!
    Yes a title does impress people, including me!
    But then, it must be in your genes.
    My mum hated it when I had my ears pierced at 13! She compared it to having a tattoo ... (her problem, not mine)
    Our dog is buried in our garden; we had a boxer, a sweet and not so intelligent dog. I grew up with one and I'd like to have a dog again.
    Don't know what kind of dog yet, maybe a smaller one. Maybe even a Jack Russel Terrier. But a well behaved one!
