The delightful Mum/Mom (from whom I’m eagerly picking up tips on life as an Englishwoman Stateside, prior to our possible move next year) has given me a lovely blogging award.

Before I add my bling to the trophy shelf, I need to pass the award on; last time around, I took my pick of the local blogs so this time I’m going to nominate a few that have an international flavour. It’s always fun to read about expats (especially as I spent my childhood as one) and the following (in no particular order) are just brilliant at summing up the Brit Abroad…..

  1. Belgian Waffle
  2. Not Wrong, Just Different
  3. Reluctant Memsahib
  4. Expat Mum

The ‘rules’ (which I am sure are made to be broken) are:

  1. Link to the giver
  2. Link to the blogs you enjoy (up to 7; I just did 4 though- lazy)
  3. Leave a message on their blogs, letting them know the good news.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm a bit lax in actually doing anything with these awards, much as I intend to, so please forgive if nothing materializes for a while.

Hey, thanks, you. That's so kind.

Where are you going to be in the States?

Congrats on your award! Who needs New York fashion week when you have bloggy bling flying about the web?
I found your blog via Tara -Dawn till rusk -it makes great reading and I'll be checking back for more!

Thanks very much, all of you.

The proposed move is to New York State...the Doctor is going to be working for a hospital/lab on Long Island..not sure of many more details yet but watch this space!

Thanks Valley Girl. I would like to thank the unrelenting tedium of my working life which gives me the intellectual isolation from which true creativity stems.

Ooh. Moving sounds very very very exciting.

Hi, I think we have coincided on "expatmum" and "reluctant memsahib"...but they deserve it! Well done to you as well...

Jaywalker, you're welcome. Funny how boredom can be a positive sometimes....

Thanks Hadriana, great minds obviously think alike - will nip over and have a look at your blog too.
