Am I a bad person'... When I lose my temper....

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 6 days ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I get cross on the phone, frustrated and I don't like how my voice sounds.  Is this happening more and more' I sincerely hope not.So, yesterday I bought a set top box for the lady who works in our house.  Kenya has now (finally, after long threats and court cases) moved to a digital system - so old analogue TVs no longer work.  Bad news for hospital waiting rooms - not such big news for us because we have a big shiny TV that is already digital but annoying for Gladys as...

Dance Fitness Nairobi (even for the middle aged!)

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 1 weeks ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

I have to admit, forget midlife crises dictating that we start running marathons in our forties. No thanks. Mine is currently 'Songa Fitness' - which is a bit like Zumba with lots of attitude. Yes, I am definitely in my forties and I guess it's pretty sad to derive so much pleasure from these beat bopping (I think that I just made that cringe-worthy term up didn't I' Oh dear) routines - but my goodness, the workout time flies! (And be warned - so does the sweat, so it's advisable to put some... Read more

Loneliness in Expat Life - Sundays Suck

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 2 weeks ago, Read 1 times. Similar articles

Can expat life be lonely'Having been an expat in East Africa for 16 years now (gasp!), I have come to accept that loneliness comes with the territory. It was only when speaking to some younger, newbie British expats last week (I was honoured to meet them and kept on referring to myself as 'so old' by way of an apology...) that I realised that the situation hasn't changed. It's still lonely sometimes.Sundays are the real bone of contention.  Sundays can drag and if your other half is... Read more

Oh how we love camping

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 4 month ago, Read 1 times. Similar articles

We had one of our better camping experiences last weekend.  It was a school event, camping inside an upcountry school grounds - fully catered, a fun crowd of fellow campers with similar aged kids, hot showers, flushing loos, great views. All I had to pack was an in-car lunch and sundowners (crisps, beers, nuts) to reward ourselves once the tent was up.  Okay, it certainly wasn't the greatest nights sleep - at one point, when temperatures dropped, I was convinced I had developed...
