- Sinterklaas 3 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 5 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 →
- Disrepose 7 months ago Disrepose - This summer I caught flashes of the golden shimmer of their childhood. Occasionally. If I’d slept enough the night before and squinted at them, in just the right way, into the glare of a full August sun. Tell me. Did you survive? Are you unscathed? Is it eerily silent where you are?...
- Best Holiday Never. 7 months ago How did we attain the holy grail of holidayness, without our holibob it turning into a helliday? Continue reading →
- Rootless Wildlings. 7 months ago I was born in Ireland and brought up in the UK. In England I was identified as ‘Irish’. I accepted this as my identity. I experienced feeling like an outsider, before I grew to embrace my differences. What confounded me greatly, was when I returned to Ireland to go to university and discovered...

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.
