Non-working mums

From Africa Expat Wives Club, Yesterday, Read 0 times. Similar articles

It goes without saying that there's a pressure on all women today to be high achieving and wonderful at multi-tasking. The great debate of stay at home/working mothers rumbles on and even though the years pass, the conversation stays exactly the same. When I was at a girls only school, our headmistress (way back then) was all for us majoring in physics to ultimately train as engineers and beat men at their own game. That might have worked as a life plan for one or two of us, but let's face... Read more

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

Home insurance.  How come, every year at around this time, I wake up in the middle of the night with a cold sweat in the realisation that my home insurance has lapsed.  Short of sticking pins in my eyes, how will I ever remember' No reminder has been forthcoming by either sms or email - the policy has just been allowed to lapse. This time around, it was when a friend was recounting the incident of a neighbourhood break-in that the penny dropped. (Thank goodness she had... Read more

Nairobi. To shop, or not to shop

From Africa Expat Wives Club, 2 weeks ago, Read 0 times. Similar articles

On a busy bank holiday last weekend, I took my kids to a shopping centre to watch a movie.  Gasp.  Horror.  'You took your kids to a movie?' An incredulous school parent said at afternoon pick-up time this week, after asking what I had been up to.Even worse. Even more shocking, I took someone else's child to a movie (with my kids of course).  And this child spent the whole time in the car on the way there saying, 'this is really great because my parents don't usually...

App Mums

First of all, congratulations to Kate Middleton on the birth of a princess, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana!  I am yet again in awe of her appearing coiffed and in high heels outside the hospital just hours after giving birth! Then to be receiving a flurry of family visitors on day 1. Sounds exhausting but I'm sure she continues to manage it all with aplomb.My kids are big now but a friend made me laugh when she referred to the mums of toddlers and babies nowadays as 'app mums'.  I wish...

Africa expat life on TV

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

Over the years, via this comparatively long running blog (yikes, I started this in 2006!!), I have had approaches by TV and film company researchers asking various questions about expat life, apparently exploring the idea that a ?fly on the wall' documentary, fiction series or reality TV that might make great viewing for the folks back home. Do I know anyone who has recently moved here from the UK who might be willing to be filmed 24/7 for TV' (answer: No - are you joking').It's not hard to... Read more

Young Expat Life in Nairobi

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

I've just met some of those expat twenty-somethings that I was telling you about recently. The ones who are flocking to Kenya to stimulate social enterprise. In fact I even met a young expat who was working for an investor in social entrepreneurship. The investment company she works for finds sustainable, innovative companies to sink money in to and then they hope to see not only a cash return but social good come out of it. I've learned via Google that this is called Socially Responsible... Read more
