- What I learned the day I visited ACS Egham International School 3 days ago This week was rather exciting. I had been invited to come and give a talk on my experience of raising children in Britain as a non British parent – to talk about my book ‘Bringing Up Brits’ and to chat with a group of international parents about their view points and their experiences. I...
- How I went from business idea to reality in 3 months - guest post 1 week ago In July this year I took my children camping in the Yorkshire Dales. As I sat gazing at the campfire with a gorgeous sunset adding touches of pink to the sky, I mulled over my work situation. I was at a crossroads. Like many expats, I had been forced down the self-employment route due to […]The...
- 30 things I love about my cross-cultural kids 1 week ago They call cookies cookies and not biscuits. They love peanut butter even more than I love peanut butter, and I love peanut butter. I recently watched a movie about an American family who moved to France. They asked where the peanut butter was in the store and were met with scorn. So the British are...

- On your marks, get set, bbaaaaaike! Why I love The Great British Bake-Off 3 weeks ago Most of the TV I like to watch is crime based drama or thrillers and the majority of shows I gravitate towards are American.

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.
