Write Now Rebekah
I was born in Ireland, grew up in England and met my Cornish husband in Catalonia. We now live in the Netherlands, in Dutch suburbia, with our two differently wired small kids. I write about my experiences trying to bring up my kids abroad.

  • Wee are not amused 5 days ago I’m now known as the woman who washes her face in wee. That's wee-ly going to help me integrate, isn't it?! Or maybe, just maybe.... I've discovered something that the Dutchies already do?!!!  Maybe it's already a trend. Wee washing. Sure why not? I mean snail gunk is being sold as moisturiser...
  • Homework 1 week ago We’ve just had a school holiday in the Netherlands. Two weeks off from school (them) and the evening Dutch course (me). It wasn’t so much a holiday for me, in the traditional sense of the word. More like a  relentless 12 hour day shift.  In a job where I am enslaved by titchy, belligerent...
  • You've got to be yolk-ing 4 weeks ago I got an egg for Easter. One. It was a prized and lovely Cadbury Creme Egg, Easter Egg. Anyone who knows and loves me, will be fully aware of my deep feelings of adoration for Creme Eggs….I’m addicted, I think there might actually be crack cocaine in them. The Netherlands doesn’t share my...
  • Sinterklaas 5 months ago It’s Sinterklaas fever here in the Netherlands. He’s like a skinny Santa, who comes over from Spain on a boat, looks a bit like a bishop and rides a horse. Instead of elves, he has lots of questionably face-painted helpers. They randomly leave chocolate letters, presents and tiny cookies in...
  • The yoga class 7 months ago At this stage in my life I’m more of a yogeezer than yogalicious mama. It’s NEVER relaxing with the kids. I normally end up cranky and a bit sweary. Definitely not the zen experience I want it to be. But I went ahead and signed us up for parent and child yoga anyway. Continue reading →

Always look forward to reading the next adventure that Rebekah writes about. Her musings are wonderfully written, amusing and draw pictures in my head. Makes me want to visit Holland again and see it through her eyes

Mostly hilarious, often moving and always wonderfully written observations and tales of parenthood that are utterly relatable and offer a brilliant flavour of what it’s like to undergo the usual challenges (to sanity!) that kids bring, with the added hurdle of doing so in a new country whilst adapting to its culture. Thoroughly worth using the rare quiet moments I get to read, laugh out loud and sometimes feel a bit leaky in the eye area. Highly recommended reading and of manageable length for my tired weary Mum eyes!

Blimmin’ hilarious. And I’d imagine, if you’re living the Dutch dream too, pretty useful.

I have total admiration for this crazy family, bringing up their wonderfully interesting children in the Netherlands. Thanks Rebekah for sharing your daily challenges so eloquently, and giving us all a giggle at the same time. This blog is like a good boxset. I can't wait to read the next instalment.
