So what’s it all about?

I started this blog purely for myself, because it gives me something to do and because sometimes I just need to get my thoughts out of my head. I never actually expected anyone to read it.

If you’re looking to put my blog into a category, please don’t! I’d prefer not to be labelled! I’m sure some people think of me as an expat blogger, but I rarely think of myself that way (I’m just an English girl who happens to live in Germany Switzerland) and I certainly don’t believe I write an expat blog – my content would be the same wherever in the world I happen to be! Travel blogger… food blogger… relationship blogger. I am none of those things, although I blog about them all.Β  I generally write about whatever’s happening in my life at the present time.Β You will find recipes, photos from my travels, rants about relationship issues and the occasional post on life in Germany Switzerland (the Germany ones are still in the archives!), among other things. Sometimes it’s interesting, but mostly not (to anyone other than me, that is). Hopefully when I’m old I’ll look back over my blog and either laugh at my own stupidity or realise that actually I’ve had a pretty good life after all. Like I said, I’m only doing this for myself. If other people feel like reading my blog that’s great. If they actually enjoy it even better. If you don’t like something I’ve written, that’s your business.Β  Don’t waste your time writing nasty comments – I won’t ever publish them. (Constructive criticism is allowed though)

Basically it’s all me, me, me around here – and that’s the way I like it!

  1. I have only just realised I’m a me me me kind of girl but I am and I am quite happy that way, its nice to read I’m not the only one! As well as being me me me I also love reading about everyone else too so thanks for commenting on my blog as I’ve now read some of yours and its really interesting seeing how you’re becoming German and all. I wonder when I will feel Australian, seems odd to think about it now. Have a great day πŸ™‚

    1. Turning German was a gradual process for me. I’ve been here 6 years now though. It does seem hard to imagine at first – everything the people in your new country do seems weird πŸ˜‰ I’ll always be British at heart though.

  2. Your blog is fab and not putting a label on it just makes it more interesting! Funny how we’re almost the opposite – I’m German but left for the UK when I was 19 and spent 6 years there. After that I tried going back to Germany but failed miserably, I just didn’t feel German any longer. Now I’m in Ireland and I have no idea what I’m feeling! Each new country just makes things more complicated and now I stopped thinking about it and just pick the things that I like from each place I lived in πŸ™‚ Btw: What kind of food is your header photo? I don’t seem to recognise it and it’s been bugging me the last 15 minutes πŸ˜‰

  3. I am so glad I found your blog, I recently moved to Switzerland from the UK and am still finding my way around with all the bureaucracy, getting used to the high prices and missing certain foods from back home. Keep up the great work!
