  • Memories of spring time in Tokyo 2 days ago I’m a Google+ user and with all the recent photos of cherry blossoms in Japan, my thoughts turn to the two and a half years I spent in Tokyo, living and working as an English teacher. Oh how they loved their cherry blossoms, they were so proud of them. We went on many ‘Hanami’ picnics...

  • Hope Academy for Girls in Sierra Leone 1 week ago Just got these fabulous photos from the Hope Academy for Girls in Sierra Leone London charity dinner that I attended a few weeks ago.

  • Easter Holidays in the UK 1 week ago My kids think Easter in America is amazing. They experienced it two years ago in Florida with their American grandparents, one of their American Aunts and one of their American Uncles.

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.
