I get a bit fed up of all this kissing m'larky in France. Okay I live here and like the place and try to behave as locals do.
BUT blooming kissing the MIL 8 times a day is 'un peu trop'.
When she stays here I am expected to kiss twice on each cheek (facial of course...
) morning and night.
Once I stayed in Corsica and we had a lot of people staying at her house, 14 of her friends plus daily visitors..... I reckon I had to 'perform' about 1000 kisses in 1 week.
Very unproductive and full of garlic flavoured germs.
I've learnt to sport a few days stubbly growth when she arrives here now.
