  • Rescue Dogs Are Like a Box Of Chocolates... 1 week ago When you rescue a dog you can never be too sure about what you’re going to get. The beagle, a Texan, came from the Houston Beagle Rescue Association. An organization which appeared (from its website) to have dozens of middle-aged beagles with some serious baggage. Each beagle had an icon to click...
  • Boarding School - Here's Our Truth 1 week ago It was April last year when I wrote about our eldest heading to boarding school. The reality had arrived. I couldn’t keep pretending it wasn’t going to happen. We’d not only said it out loud but we’d paid the deposit (ouch) and it was time to get my head around it before she started at her...
  • The Virtual Expat 2 months ago I have moved into phase two of my expat and mothering life. No more baby groups or coffee mornings with a toddler at my knee. My children are sometimes out the door as early as seven in the morning to start school. They’re pretty much left to their own devices when it comes to remembering […]
  • So When Do You Get The All Clear? 2 months ago A mate of mine called mid chemo, a man I’ve been friends with for over twenty years.

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.
