- Out with the old, in with the new - Goodbye BUB blog as we know it 1 week ago After much MUCH discussion with friends, family, readers and supporters of Bringing Up Brits blog, I have made a monumental decision. It will take some time for me to carry out the changes I plan on making to Bringing Up Brits blog so please bear with me on this. I have absolutely loved blogging...
- The great British tin scare 1 week ago I recently had a tin scare. Yes, a tin scare. This is me admitting that I am happy to bake cakes for school events whenever required BUT I’d better damn well get my tin back! Is it just me? Is that uncharitable? After last week’s baking for school fayres (I’ll never feel right about spelling...
- Do you want Bringing Up Brits blog to continue? 1 week ago I need your help please. I’m considering giving up my Bringing Up Brits blog for personal reasons (mainly because my older children protest against me writing about them and they detest having their photos on it). I’m always careful not to post things that might embarrass them, but now they are...
- Paddington 1 week ago I took my younger two kids to see Paddington yesterday and my 11 year old daughter said “predictable” and my 5 year old said “scary” (you’ll have to see the movie to find out why he said scary!). To the annoyance of my daughter, I said “So sweet. The best children’s movie”. Although...
- Shameless Christmas gift plug 2 weeks ago Ok so here’s my Christmas “Buy my book” blog post, I promise it will be the ONLY one until next year at the end of November.

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.
