Expat Living: Highs & Lows

It has been a busy week for this expat living in Bath, England.
If you follow my instagram you may have seen the budding flowers. 
I am so happy about this that its hard to walk down the street
without snapping a photo of the signs of Spring.
I had been asked by an Expat Blog to do an interview about my life living
abroad and advice to other expats and those hoping to cross over the pond. 
In this I realized that there is only really one thing that gets me down.
Life in England is a little more expensive than if we had chose to live stateside.
I have friends who own their own two story houses with basements and land.
While that looks nice in photograph, I would not give up my tiny washing machine and
drying my clothes over the heater to not seeing the views I have outside my window.
With our 10 year Vow Renewal coming up, I look forward to sharing those views
as the backdrop to our ceremony and photographs. 
I have however found out that life does not have to be so expensive in England and 
hopefully within the next couple of months things may start becoming more smooth 
as we continue our transition into our new home here in Batheaston. 
Anyone interested in seeing a house tour of where we live?
While I was out with my friend Libby yesterday having one of the best Chai lattes,
we discussed going out weekly to try out different venues in our Bath area.
Which would be great because there is somewhere special that I hope to share
with all you blog readers next week. 
Speaking of surprises.
I was suprised this week to find out that I was chosen to be a VIP blogger
for Britain Style Bloggers at Bristol Fashion Week. 
 I added the official button on the side bar and wil be tweeting on Twitter about it.
Look for the hashtags: #BFWSS13#BristolFashionWeek
Until that awesome time later this month I have a special guest blogger
to share something special with you. Something else to look forward to next week!
Thank you to all the new readers and if you found me from Across the Pond
Thank you and I’m glad you came this way.

      I cannot wait to share them. I’ll probably be going quite active on twitter/instagram on the day too.

    Little crocus buds are popping up here in Amsterdam but I’m afraid we’re gonna have to wait much longer for spring to arrive!

      Ah weather. I’ll take any bit of sunshine I can get. :) When ever the clouds move and show the sun in England I’m outside ready to enjoy it because I do not know when we will get it again. 😉

    Really interesting reading the perspective of an expat in the UK. I’m a British expat now living in Italy. I used to spend my summers with family in Bath. It’s so beautiful but I agree, it’s very expensive.

    Enjoyed reading your posts and looking forward to more. Sarita

      Again its so funny that you once spent your summers in Bath and now live in Italy because I used to live in Napoli. xx

    Congrats on being chosen as one of the bloggers, that’s fantastic!
    And I am definitely interested in seeing a house tour of where you live :)

      Thank you! I would like to do a tour, still unpacking a few things from when we moved in December. x
