Ok...so right now I haven't exactly travelled very far as I'm still in the UK...but I am so itching to get to France and excited for everything to begin that this first blog is basically me and my getting excited. ahhhh! As soon as I get on the eurostar and am actually on my way I think my excitement might just boil over!

Of course, right now there seems to be just a million things to do and sort out beforehand. And me being me I've left my France things at home in Flitwick. Although really I think those France things i.e documents & info are available online, but there are some things, like my own lists of what to bring and do, which I think I'd appreciate now to subdue my excitement. Of course, I am aware that going to France is going to be a MAJOR change, but right now I am optimistic that I will face the challenges happily and willingly...well except maybe I am a little apprehensive about walking into a shop and having to explain things in French...and understand things in French...yes, well, so actually communication is one thing I'm quite worried about, and sorting a French bank account etc etc... but of course, in time communication will improve, at least that is my optimistic view of what to expect!

Anyway, best to go now. I have satisfied my excitement by writing this one blog. Just a quick note that I have been told I am going to Le Mans, and my administrative school being L'ecole primaire Les Ardriers. Just read my draft and realised I forgot to mention why I am actually going to France ha, although you may have already read my 'About this blog' para or guessed by now...it is to be a primary school english teaching assistant on my third year abroad! Et voila! C'est tout! (For now!;)) I hope that the next time I write here I'll have more interesting news to convey. But for now, just simmering.
