I cannot imagine the devastation to all those involved when… Continue reading Expo 2020 Dubai

It’s harder than we expected.... Back to school 2020 v. 2017 And so it happened, the day we had both basically been dreading - Cameron went back to ‘proper’ education after being world schooled for 2 years, and yes it really has been a LOT harder than we expected both logistically and emotionally.

Celebrating Thanksgiving 2019

Some of my British friends think it's a little strange that we as a family celebrate Thanksgiving here in the UK but this has become a ritual in our lives for the last 11 years now and with our ever increasing busy lives it is a lovely opportunity to re-connect with our nearest and dearest,… Continue reading Celebrating Thanksgiving 2019

Why aren’t asian people fat??

It is true isn't it? I don't think I have ever seen an overweight asian in my entire life and yet having circumnavigated the globe I can officially say that they have the most flavoursome food in the whole world.

Another suitcase in another hall.

One day we are not considered mature enough to have sex, the next… Continue reading Coming of Age
