Desperate English Housewife in Washington, chapter 526

My short, but very sweet, expat life

But first, I have to endure this blasted winter (Gawd, I hate winter!). It’s flippin’ freezing already.

How to be an expat!

How to be an expat!

We’ll be heading back to the UK for a quick visit in January. The reason? It’s the only time of year the weather is better than here on the East Coast of the USA! 😉 Oh, yes, and to see friends and family of course! (And make all sorts of arrangements for our return home 😦 )

Anyway, I recently wrote a heartfelt article about what it’s like to be a ‘temporary expat’. There are good things, and there are bad things, and there is a way of life that I’ve learned to live.
