This post was prompted by three things: 1) a mom meltdown with my teens this morning, 2) Joe Biden staying calm while Trump tried to dismantle his son’s reputation for not fitting the mould (of course he said way more than that but let’s use this expression for now), and 3) a parent teen brag […]Read more "Life Through the Teen Lens"
A few months ago, I had the great pleasure of being interviewed by Nicole Caba from The Moving Roadmap Podcast, powered by Avvinue. It’s just been released, and if you’re interested, you can listen to it here, or read the transcript. Avvinue offers a relocation platform to coordinate your entire move abroad – anywhere in […]Read more "Avvinue Podcast Interview"
Next stop: Fruita, Colorado. This was our base for a full week, a tiny one-horse town near Grand Junction, close to the Utah border, and the perfect base from which to explore this part of the country. S had to work for a few days, which suited me fine, as I still felt pretty rough, […]Read more "Road Trip – Part 2"
I love a good road trip, and luckily, I live in a country that is made for road trips! If I wanted to sound cynical, I would say that right now, that’s about the only good thing about this country. But I don’t want to ruin the mood. We planned our road trip in lieu […]Read more "Road Trip – Part 1"
May 2020 was supposed to be this crazy busy, amazing, end-of-an-era month. A May to remember! I have all those dates popping up in my calendar, dates that I meticulously noted at the beginning of the school year, in a previous life. Now they are evil reminders of the things we are missing.Read more "Lockdown Musings"

It’s done! I’d promised myself to have this live by March, and here it is, in all its imperfect, probably too long and definitely not polished, glory. It’s late on a Sunday evening, and I’m exhausted, proud, jittery and a little bit drunk. But here it is, and I’m so happy I kept my promise […]Read more "…And Here it is!

Hello 2020, and goodbye England, my old friend. We started the new year, and the new decade, with a quick one-week trip across the pond, which included a couple of days with friends, a few days in London with my parents and dinner with my in-laws, and of course meeting my new nephew and niece, […]Read more "Beginnings and Exits"
One more day until Christmas now. I swear, yesterday I still had a week. At least I’m done with my Christmas shopping, and I even managed to send out a handful of cards (by handful, I mean that literally, so don’t be disappointed if you’re not getting one). I’ve decided not to get sucked into all the usual Christmas stress, but rather, to enjoy the season and try and relax a little. I have to, as this car crash of a year simply has to end on a good note. 2020, I’m so ready for you!Read more "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year Part II – Christmas"
