According to the saying ‘absence makes the heart grew fonder’, so the three* people who follow my blog must bloody adore me!
For the past few months all of my words have been going to places other than on this blog. To the book. to my uni assignment. Into some casual work that also involves words. After being a stay-at-home mum for over 12 years these opportunities are greatly appreciated and welcomed, but I haven’t been able to keep up with this blog. Although to be perfectly frank my days only involve getting kids to school and then writing with the occasional trip to the supermarket thrown in, so there hasn’t been a great deal to actually blog about anyway!
The only big thing is that we have passed our FOUR YEAR expat-versary. Four years!
If you do want to read some Singapore blogs here’s a random selection of some of my favourites:
Tails from the Lion City Bridget is a friend who has a passion for exploring this little island, and she usually does it on foot. She blogs about her adventures and has probably seen more square feet of Singapore than many locals.
Diary of an Expat Somebody is a satirical blog written by the fictitious Emma-Jane Austen-Jones. EJ is the stereotypical expat wife but amped up. There’s some excellent storylines developing and if you have a sense of humour this blog is well worth checking out.
Relentless Laundry is the blog of a (UK) Irish mum and her three kids. I have no idea who she is but she writes with wit and warmth, plus she throws in recipes!
Living in Sin is a food and travel blog that has lots of great tips. The writer has since repatriated back to France so you’ll get lots of French info, too.
Expat Kiwis is a blog written by New Zealand couple. They’ve been in SG since 2010 so there’s lots of great information, especially about restaurant and bars.
If you want something to listen to, rather than read, then download the Two Fat Expats podcast from iTunes. It’s not Singapore-based but Kirsty and Sarah discuss all things expat, both good and bad.
Once again, if you’re moving to Singapore feel free to drop me an email.
* I have no idea how many ‘followers’ this blog has, or if it’s actually possible to follow this blog at all! I will know I have followers when I find a GOMI thread……
