  • Middle Aged Ninja 5 days ago I had an idea for an article back in December. I pitched it, wrote it, sent it off for approval. The response was wildly enthusiastic. I was yet to invoice, thinking I’d send through a request when it was about to be published. It was, just this week, only slightly different. A different word...
  • The Privilege of Going Home 1 week ago The lump made its presence known while shaving. I stood in the shower with both arms raised like a very confused (and somewhat overfed) ballerina. Turning my head from right to left and then back to right, I ran a comparison. Was one underarm bigger than the other? Was it raised? I found a mirror...
  • Women and Concrete 2 weeks ago Firstly, a big fat thank you. Your answers to this question on Facebook yesterday were spectacular. Sarah and I record Two Fat Expats each Sunday morning. This week’s topic will cover both babies and infertility  and how those situations may differ when you’re away from home. If you’ve...
  • Make It Happen 3 weeks ago Each year when International Women’s Day rolls around I make the mistake of not thinking of it as a womens day which is celebrated internationally, but a day to celebrate International Women.

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.

Kirsty is a talented and entertaining writer who pulls readers in with her warmth, intelligence and sharp wit. A beautiful blog (and blogger).

Kirsty is a talented writer who blogs. Her blog posts are often so evocative they make me laugh and cry, in turn. One of my must-read blogs!
