2019 Wrap up

The year's gone by so quickly now that I think about it. Yet, it felt so slow. It felt like it was dragging by. You'll understand that if you've had the same kind of year and I know many people have.  2019 was the year I decided to start this blog and stick with it no matter what. Something I didn't do for any of the other blogs I've started…

Blogmas day 13: Maternity healthcare differences

I know. I know. Not even halfway through the month and I've already started to skip alternate days. Well it's just one day so far and yesterday was blah so...yeah. Today though, I met up with the fellow expat here who's the wife of hub's colleague. Her baby is lovely and slept right through the entire meet up which is amazing to me. So teeny tiny at 3 months. She…

German vs British: Our honest experience so far

It's been six months since we were last here in Germany and just over two weeks since we came back. In the time since we've been back, the cultural differences between Germany and the UK have hit me all over again! Before I go on, I must preface this by saying that we (as a family) like Germany. We love a lot about the part we're in at least! The…

Life update: Moving to Germany

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for us. A busy three months really but the last couple of weeks had us exhausted. That’s the way of change, I suppose. Especially the kind of change that involves moving house from one country to another. My family has moved to Germany from the UK.  Photo by Mika Baumeister on Unsplash - Bonn, Germany CLICK HERE FOR A SURVIVAL GUIDE FOR FLYING…
