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