Thank You

Today I want to dedicate this entire article to the amazing women that follow my adventures.  You have all at some time encouraged, supported, laughed and commiserated with me. You have given me advice on mosquito bites, bladder infections (let’s not go there), racism and heartbreak.  Moving to a new country without friends and family support unit has been one of the most difficult things I have ever done, but you have made the transition easier for me. 

As an avid people watcher my favourite part of “meeting” you all has been in reading your bios where I have discovered your hopes, fears, inspirations and dreams.  I have absolutely loved  pouring over your beautiful photographs particularly those of your lovely families.  And all those mouth-watering recipes!  I have a profound case of cookery envy, particularly as my culinary ability should carry a government health warning.  Last Christmas Day when there were endless power cuts that Turkey is so famous for, I managed to give Ahmet and myself food poisoning when I failed to cook the chicken thoroughly. Fortunately the apartment has no stove, so for the time being Ahmet has dodged a bullet.  

I envy those of you with real creativity and artistic flair with the beautifully laid out blogs including those of you that are wives, moms, career women, and yet still find time to write.  You are all truly amazing women who have supported me at a crossroads in my life and hand held me along my journey.  This experience has been an unexpected bonus and I am truly richer for it.  

So tonight ladies when I am sat on my balcony in good old Tinky Town listening to the crickets and watching the sun go down, I will raise a glass to each and every one of you.

We all have a story to tell and I thank you for allowing me to share yours and vice versa.

  1. Thank you for an entertaining blog. I admire what you have done – something that many of us may have secretly wished we had the courage to do sometime in our life ie step right out of our comfort zone. xxxx


  2. Thanks, Its always lovely to read other women’s blogs and know that they can quite literally be going through some of the same issues if not more so than you are. It is wonderful to know so many people and be able to do something that women have been doing since the beginning of time, which is pass on advice, learn from one another and of course gossip a little. I love your stories, You are a brave woman for your endeavours are surely fruitful but as in everything hard work and dedication must ensue. Hope all is well with you. I have to catch up on your blog 🙂 Happy Writing!


    • In love, life and happiness there are the same daily struggles wherever you are and I have absolutely loved the support of my fellow bloggers and sharing their stories too. Thank you for all your nice comments – it was a pleasure meeting you
