    I was born in Limoges.

    I lived there for my first three years, and then we lived just outside Paris a year before my Dad took us first to Jersey, then here to Canterbury, Kent.I have a large French family, and I have a small British one. I'm not sure where I consider home, I feel I have three homes!
