French life for Tottie Limejuice continues in this the third travel memoir in the Sell the Pig series
French life, Tottie style, in this third part of the Sell the Pig travel memoirs series.
Tottie and her eccentric family moved to France in search of a better life for her nearly nonogenarian mother who suffered from dementia. As her full-time carer, Tottie listened to daily recitations of her favourite saying: ‘Mother, mother, it’s a bugger, sell the pig and buy me out.”
Catch up now with Tottie’s French life now in the AM years – After Mother – as she starts her new life in the rural Livradois-Forez region of the Auvergne, living in Tottie’s Grottage. Meet the local inhabitants, from exotic birds to colourful characters like the Bin Pickers, Library Lady and the Bowing Farmer.
All are described with Tottie’s familiar gently ironic humour. Discover the procedure behind the Frogification of Tottie, and if her bid for French nationality is successful.
‘Mother Was It Worth It?’ is the concluding part of the Sell the Pig series, which began with ‘Sell the Pig’ and ‘Is That Billinge Lump?’
