  • The Oxygen Mask 1 week ago Anxiety arrives in various forms with the arrival of any new baby. Even the most experienced of mothers will find herself questioning the sound of a cry, a change in appetite, or forehead temperature. An expat mother adds another layer to the unknown, she is often on her own, away from family...
  • Follow The Blinking Cursor 2 weeks ago I began writing online in a hotel room, the natural habitat of a perpetual expat. With a blank page and a blinking cursor I typed the words with the idea of an online letter: We’ve made it! We are FINALLY here in Doha. We haven’t quite arrived in the state we were hoping, the house […]
  • Sending Telstra a Telegraph (pole) 2 months ago In a world of cancer treatment and discombobulated families it’s important to have a giggle. Today’s laugh out loud moment came courtesy of Andrew from Telstra. We’ve purchased a block of land, the plan is to now build a home for our family of six. Before any of this can start there are jobs...
  • Ditching The Obnoxious Twat 3 months ago I spent the entirity of the year I turned 36 telling people I was 37. It was an accident. I’d miscalculated on the day and no-one ever questioned it.

If you're an expat there is no other blog I can think of that captures every topic, emotion and experience like Kirsty does. It might be because I am a fellow Aussie living in a parallel universe but I think Kirsty's writing appeals to everyone regardless of where they are living and what their life experiences are. My absolute favourite blog to read without question.
