When life gives you lemons

I just want to say a very big THANK YOU for giving me the space to write the last post 'Jeg bor i Danmark'. It was not an easy article to write. I hear it was not an easy article to read. I suspect that if you are a regular reader you may have been somewhat surprised by the baring of the soul confessional so soon after how to make sea salt and chocolate popcorn!

Perhaps you could take a moment to read an article written by a friend of mine at Wine and Cheese Doodles. She has put into words all I was trying to say, only better.

Thank you for sharing your own thoughts on the subject of life as an expat spouse, especially those of you who have been in the same place for a while. It was so worth writing the piece in order to hear the hidden wisdom of others. Your words will be my bedrock as I step into a new and very exciting era of self employment in Denmark so thank you for taking the time to get in touch.

The sun has returned from it's hibernation and the children are laughing in the garden. Life continues and what a privileged life it is....I still have an unhealthy obsession with sea salt chocolate popcorn but it was good to mix in a little sour too, for now the chocolate will taste all the sweeter.

  1. Sometimes, life not only gives you lemons but hurls dirty great potatoes at you before you've had a chance to take cover. You emerge a bit battered and bruised but more the wiser. The ex-pat life can be hard for adult and child alike but you learn to adapt and seek out the little pleasures that keep you going. One of those pleasures is the company of friends and even if you move countries or are the ones to stay behind, you keep those friendships going and they will offer support when you most need it. How bad can it be to have the opportunity to visit great friends in fantastic countries?....
