You’ve met the man of your dreams. He is tall, blue-eyed, blonde (that was my case anyway). You two get along really well and one day, bang, he proposes. You two decide to get married but before you say ‘I do’, there is one massive fact to consider: the marriage visa. Well, that is if you are a foreigner from outside the EU marrying a British national anyway.
My favourite time of the year is here! I’ve always loved the magic of Christmas, the food, the presents, but above all, the time I spend with my family. Having said that, after moving to England, I feel like the magic has actually increased! Why? The weather and all the traditions about Christmas in England give it an even nicer feeling. Shame my family in Brazil is not here but at least I have now a family of my own!
So I would like to share some of the English traditions which are absolutely fine but that when I first came, I had no idea they existed. If you are a foreigner, I hope you relate. If you are English and reading this, I hope you laugh and have more sympathy with all the funny foreigners out there who look puzzled about your traditions!
Hello everyone! I have taken some time off from my lovely blog to be able to go to Brazil and visit my family! We also managed to celebrate our baby’s birthday and baptise him. The beach view is long gone and so has our old flat. We have finally moved to a bigger house and are now finally settling in. Those things have kept me quite busy and away from here but at least you can follow some of my moments on instagram. Well, but what or who has actually been keeping me the busiest is my usual suspect. My now 13 month old baby (I am still refusing to call him a toddler)is definitely responsible for stealing my heart and all my time… And now I managed to gather my top 6 bad mother moments.
Sooooooo, not everything is flowers in motherhood. The movie Bad Moms described that quite well. I really related to Mila Kunis character when she said she was never punctual again since she had a baby (which is kinda of a great excuse for me, as I am usually late but it’s not necessarily the baby’s fault. But they do tend sometimes to poo just before we leave the house)!
Nobody is perfect and neither are babies or mums. However, as a mum, I am sure I am the one in the wrong. You can’t blame a baby for anything as at the end of the day, he/she is just a reaction to your attitudes towards him/her. So here is a list of things I regret about my motherhood. I blame the fact that I am a foreigner in London and sometimes don’t know better! After more than a year of reflection, here are my top 5 bad mother moments:
