Snow, storms and the power of mother nature!!

While the folks in the UK shiver under another thick blanket of snow (isn’t it spring there now?!?) here in SE Qld last night we witnessed the most amazing lightning storm I have ever in my 36 and a bit years seen! I managed to capture some cracking (excuse the pun!) images (on my iPhone!) […]

I want another baby…….

oh yes I do! “oh no you don’t” oh yes indeed I do! Another little Aussie amongst a family of Brits down under. A little fella called Andrew who is cute as a button. His bed is waiting along with a collar and lead! Oh! come on you didn’t really think I wanted another ‘baby’?!….a […]

 Australia Day in southeast Queensland was a total washout! After the really hot spell of recent times and feeling envious of all the snow back in the UK we are now under threat of tornadoes and serious flooding from ex tropical cyclone Oswald.

One definite culprit was the awesome snowy scenes plastered all over my Facebook feed this morning by my friends back home. The other was the invitation to my big sisters 40th party. I know for a fact that unless […]

not always a bed of roses…..

At mummigrants we are always looking for fellow expat mums to share with us their stories and experiences (good and bad) about making the big move away from “home” and starting again somewhere new. Today we have a guest post from fellow mummigrant Katy who has moved from Scotland to Queensland in Australia. I emigrated […]
