Me on the BBC Radio and more news….

I was interviewed yesterday morning on our local BBC radio station, and talked about why I wrote the book, my background as a Third Culture Kid (TCK) and gave some advice for anyone planning a move overseas. What a lovely experience – the presenter was a joy to work with, very friendly and it felt like we were just having a chat down the pub. I went into the studios for the interview, which is something I have never done before so it was quite the experience for me! Please listen below if you get a chance and let me know what you think.

In the meantime, I was also featured in our local newspaper, the Echo, on Friday – you can read about that here: http://www.gloucestershireecho.co.uk/Cheltenham-author-diplomat-s-daughter-writer/story-26344506-detail/story.html#7dshrJCmWdeqDYeT.01

And finally – I am very honoured to have been named as a “Top 10 Expat Blogger” on the Medibroker’s website – http://www.medibroker.com/blog/2015/april/10-best-expat-blogs/, which is very kind of them!

Have a lovely Tuesday everyone.

From Cuba to the UK to St Lucia – my interview for Blog Expat

I love expat blog interviews. It gives me the chance to talk about me, me and me again! So much fun. This week I featured on BlogExpat.com’s site, talking about my time as an expat. In particular I focused on my time in St Lucia – here is an extract:

Almost everyone we met was through the children (my husband also met a few people through his work). The girls went to a lovely Montessori pre-school where we met a great range of people of all different nationalities. As well as St Lucian and British friends, I met people from Israel, Syria, Cuba, the States, Venezuela, China, Australia, India, Panama….it was a very small expat community so you did tend to get to know everyone, but most of our friends were the parents of our children’s school friends.
