About Us

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. My name is Cynthia, and I am from Mali. I now live in a beautiful village in Nottinghamshire in the UK called Plumtree, with my husband Derek.

Derek and I met in South Africa while I was working as a Nanny and he was on holiday. After 6 months of internet romance we decided to live together in England.

I love it here, working as an interior designer and helping Derek with paperwork for his building business. I miss my home and family very much, but the email and Skype help a lot.

One of the reasons for starting this blog was to be able to keep an online diary of events and pictures for my family in Mali, and also to help promote my husbands business and the services that he and his friends can provide.

Hopefully we can achieve both. Please let us know if you enjoy our blog, and feel free to contribute too, we have a contact page for you to use for that.

Au revoir from us both, and I hope you enjoy the video of my home below.
