About Expat Mum

A Brit back in Blighty, after 27 years in the US of A.
Author, columnist, blogger, wife, mother and dog-feeder.

I was brought up in the northeast of England (God's own country), went to university in Bristol and worked for the rest of the 80's in London. Married an American, moved to the US and spent decades trying to come to terms with the oppressively hot summers and unbearably frigid winters of Chicago. Now enjoying the slightly more temperate climes of jolly olde England.
