The Library

She walks with purpose, head down, the end in sight until she reaches her spot. Out of the corner of her eye, she sees a familiar face. She smiles, nods her head in acknowledgement.

Art galleries are some of my favourite places to be. My mum always took me to them when I was a child and spent time educating me about the different artists and artistic approaches. I don't claim to know much, but I know there are certain periods and types of art I'm more drawn to… Continue reading Arty Farty

Road Tripping to MA and RI

It's been a few days since my last post which means we've been busy! I didn't post yesterday because Monday is 'food shopping and catch up on washing from the weekend' day. Plus I got lost in a book and only emerged feeling fresh this morning. So, here's the latest instalment of expat life at… Continue reading Road Tripping to MA and RI
