My name is Muriel Demarcus (My married name is Jacques -you know everything now) and I am a self-proclaimed Yummy Mummy living in London. I started this blog when I left the Corporate world in 2011 to set up my own business (nothing to do with writing) and spend more time with my children.
As far as I can remember, I have always wanted to write, but never had the time. To make matters even worse, I have a scientific background, and one of my (French) teachers once laughed to my face when I told him I wanted to be a writer. To be fair to him, I never had good grades in French.

Fast forward to 2014, and here I am, making the cover of The Times Magazine and working with the BBC, SkyNews and the likes...My goal is now to write a book to share my experiences with a wider audience. Wish me luck!

As you will see, I write about the cultural differences between my home country (France) and my adoptive country (Great Britain). I am sometimes called judgemental, simplistic (and other even less nice adjectives...). Somehow I managed to hurt a few readers. C'est la vie. Let me just say that a detailed analysis of all my posts as of June 2014 has shown that:
- 74% of them are parodies
- 18% are opinions
- and the rest couldn't be categorised.

Of course I will not tell you which is which. You will have to figure it out for yourself. Now you are warned.

The design of this blog was made by the very talented Bobbi of Ready to Blog. She is simply incredible, everything sounds easy with her. I wish I had contacted her much, much earlier!


  1. Hello, I just came over because one of my new followers, writer Claire Vorster, had you on her list! Looking forward to reading your blog (I *love* London!).

    1. Nice to meet you Jean! Where are you blogging from? I am looking forward to interacting with you...

  2. Hi - the story you blogged about recently (eavesdropping on two French men in a London cafe) has reached the UK papers:

    1. You are right! See, you read it here first. Thanks for letting me know.

  3. Congratulations on the sharp new site and national exposure, well-deserved!

    1. Thank you! I will believe it when I see it...I can't wait to see the article!

  4. Hi Muriel, just discovered your site after seeing that you had unfollowed me on Twitter and reading the description of your profile, I was like "oh, how did I miss her, of course I want to follow back". So here I am reading your blog and so happy to have found someone with similar attitude about being a French in London. Will now be a loyal reader. Sorry for not having picked up on this earlier :-)
