I’m a mummy, an expat and much to my disbelief (and denial) I’m 40!
Once upon a time I was a writer. However any creative flair I had disappeared the moment I had children and I haven’t written anything for eight years. As I turned 40, I found that I do actually have lots to say… so I’ve decided to put pen to paper and write about my life, the trials of parenthood and living as an expat family in Thailand.
So here we are over halfway through 2020 and what a bloody disaster it’s been! Would be handy if we could just write it off and come back afresh in Jan 2021!! As we are well and truly saying goodbye to lockdown, it’s a chance for me to reflect on the past 6 months.
I once lied about my children. Completely lied. All to save someone’s feelings.
If you have recently found out your child has dyslexia, you might be anxious about what it actually means, where it could lead and how you can help. This guide can help you on your journey.
Today’s a bit of a sad day. It’s the day Chas and I have decided we were going to close the Asian elephant charity we’ve been running since 2003, EleAid.
It’s been a super fun ride and along the way, we’ve helped hundreds of elephants from across Asia but it’s got to the point where we no longer have the ability to physically check out projects we would like to support and don’t have the time to ensure the charity is running the best it can be.
So… here we are, Day 6873(!?!?!) of lockdown and all is as expected at Begley primary.
My mum’s just texted my sister and I. One of her friends’ daughters has just died from Covid-19. The text ended:
…don’t get complacent. I love you both so much.
Don’t become a statistic and don’t put others at risk because you got complacent.
