Who we are. By Olivier

In this series, we ask others, who contribute to the Journal, to introduce themselves.

I worked for 40 years and most of my jobs were to manage teams in warehouses. For the last four years, I was a buyer. It means, I sent orders to manufacturers to supply different warehouses for our chain of supermarkets.

I worked in the greater Paris area all my life except between 1985 – 1989, when I worked in Nancy and Strasbourg, in the East of France. Since August 1 of this year, I am retired and have left space for younger people.

For the last 15 years, I have been living in Serris, a young town in the Eastern suburbs of Paris, near Disneyland. My father lives close by, but my children live in Toulouse, in the south of France and I have one daughter who lives in Toronto, Canada.

Now that I am retired, I can visit family and friends more often than while I was working. I love my country and I like to visit it. Once a year, I travel to Canada and sometimes, I travel within Europe.

I have trips planned for the rest of the world. I like big, wild landscapes.

I have many hobbies and one of my favourites is growing vegetables and flowers in my little (150m²) plot. This season, I am preparing the ground for next spring. I enrich the soil with horse manure. In December, I will start digging.

I will also grow fruit and vegetables, like lettuce, leeks, strawberries and much more.

I also love to grow flowers. Next year, I will divide the plot into three parts. Each part will be in one different colour.
