  • How do you know that's not going to happen when you get married. 15 hours ago A girlfriend of mine told a story of motherhood recently, acknowledging her sentimental irrationality she grinned as she explained how she was laying in bed, sobbing into the crook of her husband’s neck as he consoled her. As he held her tightly with great affection he reassured her with the...

G and I will have a night in a hotel, a quick catch up with friends and then regroup to begin our family holiday. The […]
  • It's Not Real Life 6 days ago The kids had a question. They’d watched a story on the ABC about a Pakistani girl going to a white bred, middle class Australian school where she’d been bullied about her head scarf and skin colour. “Mum, was it like that when you went to school in Australia?” “I can’t remember anyone...

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.
