The story of mum. Or mom. Depending on where you are from.

About Me

I am a late 30 something mum who, along with her 2 kids and husband,  has upped sticks  and moved from a small town just outside Oxford, UK  to a small town just outside Boston, USA.  That  is where the similarities  end.


This is a diary  about my journey as I navigate life across the pond. The highs, the lows, the absolute meltdowns in the shampoo aisle of Wegmans.


A  raw, authentic, occasionally humorous look at what it is to move 3000 miles and start a new life with small people, a puppy and a husband who is out 12 hours a day.  There will be tears, wine, liberal use of profanity,  grief, loss, more wine, laughter, old friends that are already family and new friends that become like family.   I can guarantee there will be absolutely no  recipes for Pumpkin Pie, DIY Halloween costume ideas or tips on how to live your best life.


If this sounds like a bit of you, then come on in, pull up a chair  and let me tell you about life in the U S of A.
