Hi Audra, Thanks for the message! You're welcome to ask questions, and you can do that a number of ways. You can contact me directly on expat blog, or you can post questions/comments here. I'm always happy to share anything I've learned in the last 4 years, as long as people understand that its what I've learned from my life and I could be totally wrong. Surviving an LDR is tough, so I recommend expanding your support network as wide as you can, and I read a lot of blogs and online info during the "apart" side of the relationship.

Good morning Beloved Blog (Imagine me shining at you from here), Why the shine? Well spring snuch around the corner and recharged the old batteries. Although, truth be told, I'm sitting here in a pink dressing gown with my almost empty cup of coffee, bleary morning face and-- given the state of things, I'm probably covered in cat hair. Hey, its washing day. So what has been happening lately, as I have been away from here for a little while now? In short, many things. The thing is, each fantastic thing going on around here deserves its' own blog post.... Continue reading

You know, I didn't think it would be impossible. And I'm not one who is into the whole glamour wedding thing. I never wanted the whole picket fence lifestyle. Ask me, really do, and if I'm honest part of me is screaming in the background of my brain "RUN YOU... Continue reading

So I'm going to share my apple pie recipe with you, because its easy and its delicious. Apple pies are so Australian for me, anything in a pie is. At the moment I'm having a bit of a struggle with my weight (Gained 5kg since landing, sheeeesh) and I've also had a bit of a struggle with exercise motivation. But I'm finding a way to get through that. Sadly, I made this last night and forgot to take pictures because I was eating it. When I get organised today I'll try and post. My recipe for Apple pie is easy... Continue reading

If crying about that stuff wasn't allowed, that stuff wouldn't exist. Today I'm into lists too, so here's a list for you :) 1. Not being able to eat yummy strawberries sucks. Strawberries are Nature's crack for sugar addicts... and I should know. 2. How you didn't punch Scott about the Hershy bar incident will forever be a mystery to me. 3. Don't blame yourself for being upset about the Nachos. I hate when your cheer up food doesn't really meet the requirements for being called food. That's just not fair. Still scrolling through your website pics (yeah I'm going a bit trolly, its a weird internet compliment I guess) you don't look fat to me. You look healthy and you sound smart, interesting and totally the kind of person who should be making babies, so the world sucks a little less. In case, however, cheer and positive thoughts from random internet stranger wasn't what you ordered from the world, I leave you with the words of Allie Brosh, I am sorry about your dead goldfish. xLisa

If someone told me I couldn't eat sugar... well I ate about six brownies yesterday (that I had made myself so I knew EXACTLY how much fat/sugar etc was in there... those things could give you diabetes just smelling them). Anyway I wouldn't be so graceful or humorous about it. I'd be lethal. I guess what I'm trying to say is KUDOS lady. I would have killed someone. X Miss Beesy.

As madame Muss muss is more and more comfortable at home, and learns that 1am is not the time to get bored and sing us the song of her people, we are all settling better into Mannheim. It has been a large adjustment living together. My own private time, my own freedom of self which previously was separatate from my relationship is melding with the relationship-ness of living with someone. I'm sure that there is a more articulate way to say all that, but until I can be bothered editing these posts, this will do. I have well and truly... Continue reading

As someone who is tossing up between just getting married at the courthouse and getting married with a ceremony, I like this post. For me, getting married has always been about the long haul. It has never been about the 'wedding'. Still, the chance to enjoy a celebration with friends and family, and to participate in the traditions of marriage, is something that still appeals to me. Hence why I'm here, reading this. It is true that I personally would rather read blogs than Wedding magazines. I find that the average wedding magazine is mostly advertisements, and all for things which lie well outside my very budget budget. The availability of DIY and budget options online make it far more appealing for brides like me. :)
So hello again internet, Since we last spoke, its been a rocky time. It has been stressful, until today. Today despite the cold and the ice all over the place and the rain and everything that Germany is throwing at me to try and make me feel like this is the kind of place nobody would ever want to live in we are one step closer to getting this stupid living situation sorted out. I suppose it is worth mentioning that Mr Germany himself, the complete black hole for radiance and optimism, has been freaking out about the cost of... Continue reading

Oh Hey ho there readers! Its two weeks in to 'moving to Germany' and I have to say its a lot more underwhelming than I had expected. There's been a lot of eating sweets and drinking beer lately. I am sure this will wear off soon... but who knows. If not I need to find a gym. Which brings me to the exciting world of navigating things online in German :D. *You probably can't tell that's sarcastic. So I am usually, as you may guess, a netizen. This means, at least to me, that I would rather spend my life... Continue reading

The drive back from the airport this time wasn't the same. Normally as I get off the plane I'm overflowing with excitement, certainty, plans, and generally a sense of time-bound bwlonging. This time all of those things were absent. This time, I disembarked to a cold, grey land after the sunshine of Australia; uncertain, worried and without the joy of reunion waiting for me. Travelling with my partner wasn't the same as travelling alone. He woke me up to try and make sure I wouldn't miss meals. He insisted that I put my chair forward so that people behind me...
