  • Dear Terrorist 9 hours ago   Dear Terrorist, I imagine you’re delighted with this week’s warning from the US embassy that has made its way across the Middle East. Your anonymous posting on an extremist website calling for the execution of American teachers certainly cast a wide net. As the mother of children at an...
  • Give Yourself Permission To Fail 1 day ago   In the first year that G and I were married I decided to return to study. I enrolled in a very serious business management subject and began my first assignment with an essay on management systems. I had absolutely no interest in management systems but I figured it would help out at work and...
  • What Did I Have to Lose - Episode 2 3 days ago G and I were at a beach party at a fancy hotel last year. The music was reggae, we were drinking mojitos and everyone was lounging beachside. At the end of the night while we waited for friends we did something that most couples do without thinking – we kissed, until we received a tap […]
  • The Lady Who Danced On The Internet 6 days ago Back in 2011, I made my daily pilgrimage to Eden Riley’s blog and found this.

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