The weather has finally turned this week in England, and it’s started to feel more than a little chilly. But this brings good things with it as well – awesome sunsets during my evening runs and coal fires! You certainly don’t get the latter in Bangkok! ...

I hate my hair. It’s the bane of my life. Oh how I wish I had the long flowing silky locks that all of the lovely Thai ladies do. It’s thick, curly frizzy and mostly looks a real mess. Those good hair days people allude to? I just never seem to have them. I thought it […]

As lovely as being back in the UK is, especially being able to spend quality time with friends, family and fresh air, there are a few things that I have become conscious of since being back which have reminded me about some of the reasons of why I love being an expat and living in the Big Mango: 1. Public Transport Public transport is soooooo expensive in the UK....

It’s been a tough week this week for me, for a few different reasons and consequently I only have a few pictures to share with you, although looking at my roast dinner from last week I am already salivating at the thought of roast lamb this evening: If you’re a member of Facebook, then you’ve probably not been able to miss the recent posts of...

When the chance to move Bangkok arose, I wouldn’t consider leaving without my beloved cats, Dusty and Socks. After all, they are part of my family. I really wasn’t sure what moving a pet abroad would entail – would they both come out on the luggage belt with the suitcases? And then when they actually got to Bangkok I became convinced a cobra would...

Loy Krathong is one of my favourite festivals in Thailand. I feel there is something so meaningful about letting go of bad karma, bad feelings and bad luck from the previous year and instead encouraging good luck and hope. It seemed more important than ever to me to do that this year. When I was originally due to be back in Bangkok at the start of November, I made...

Firstly, I’d like to say thank you to everyone who took the time to comment on my post on Friday – all of the message meant a lot. It was nice this week getting to celebrate not only Firework Day in England (well we had sparklers!) but also Loy Krathong the following day – full post on that coming this week. Here’s my week:   ...

I wrote a post earlier this year about feeling lost. I got lots of helpful advice but sadly I still feel lost. Possibly more than ever. I feel odd. My life in the UK is very different to my life in Bangkok. There’s something so lovely being back in a place that’s familiar, breathing in fresh air, no traffic, cooking Roast dinners in an oven and having...

One of the best bits about being back in England for a short time is visiting my friends around various parts of the country. While I was in London I had the pleasure of catching up with my friend Serena (check out her amazing blog Into The F World) who I first met in Bangkok. It was lovely to catch up and swap stories about how it felt being out of Asia and back...

When I first moved to Bangkok, I gave up a 10 year legal career and I thought the time away from work was going to be amazing. How wrong I was. But who was I to complain? I had a life in the sun, a condo with a swimming pool – life should have been a breeze. You might remember Becky who recently shared her experience about being a Mommy In Bangkok. Here’s...
