  • The Mothership Sleep Support for expat parents 2 weeks ago My husband and I moved to Kuwait last year when my little boy was 1 year old, he had an amazing routine when we were in Canada but after moving that all went out the window! I struggled in a new country making friends and also meeting people who understood what I was going through. […] The post...
  • A Spanish surprise 3 months ago We’ve arrived back in England after a few days away in Spain visiting British grandparents and catching some well needed R&R. We love going to Spain during October, out of season, as it’s much more chilled out, fewer tourists and lots of car parking spots open! Plus, the weather is generally...
  • When friends move away 3 months ago One of the hardest things about living outside your home country as an expat is making friends. What’s even harder is watching those friends go back to their home countries or move on somewhere else. Additionally, what’s even harder than that is watching friends who are native to your adopted...
  • Afternoon Tea - is it only for tourists now? 4 months ago Since moving to England, I’ve experienced some pretty amazing cream teas and afternoon teas. Traditional afternoon tea is an English tradition that I really like but wonder whether it is dying out? Especially with young people?

I love Meghan's Bringing Up Brits Blog, always relevant, honest and thought provoking posts! Meghan got the conversation going on the topic of raising your children in a country that is not your own, this topic is relevant wherever you are doing this which is why her blog is so impactful. Meghan has created a community through her book and blog and that makes a lot of people feel more at home in their adopted country, the UK.

I love reading Meg's blog! It is witty, funny and it makes me feel far less isolated living in England. Her blog is very relevant to me even though I do not raise my kids in England, I get great comfort from the feeling I am not alone out there. She has really built a name for herself as an expert with her blog, book and TV guest appearances! You really deserve to win Meg - good luck!

I love the discussion about raising your kids in a different country than the one you were born in yourself. I'm a Brit in the Netherlands essentially raising Dutch kids and Meghan's blog about raising her kids as an American in Britain is eye opening and entertaining. Great insights into parenting in a foreign country.

Great writing by Meg and a great and am sure, very well needed, blog. For those who move to the UK, this must be a really helpful and supportive read. Likewise, for those who are born and bred in the UK, it most certainly creates a whole new perspective around the difficulties people face when moving here. Great stuff.

This blog is really well-written and always interesting. I am not an expat but I enjoy reading about life in this country from another perspective.
