Desperate English Housewife in Washington

I%u2019m your UK Desperate Housewife in the USA and this is my blog. It%u2019s all about me, how I feel about moving to and living in the USA, and what life is like out here. New York 180 It%u2019s a little bit adventure, little bit stream of consciousness, little bit Bill Bryson. I%u2019m an %u2018expat%u2019 who is pretty much seizing every opportunity I can in this strange and wonderful country (whilst also being a mother, wife and rather rubbish housewife.) I%u2019ll be debunking myths and probably confirming some cliches that we Brits have about America and Americans. After all, what we know, or think we know, is generally from movies and TV series%u2026.. Throughout the blog I%u2019ll share the things that amuse, confuse and bemuse me %u2013 and lots of stuff does! Am I a dreamer%u2026.? Yes! Would I like to go on Good Morning America every Friday for an update on my week in the merry old Land of Big Macs? Yes! Would I like to write a column for the Washington Post / Marie Claire all about these adventures? Yes, yes please! But right now, everything I see, feel and experience will be blogged about so I can share it with you. It%u2019s a journey, and my eyes and mind are open for anything and everything. Particularly amusing and enlightening during the journey so far is the cultural comparison between the USA and the UK because, believe me, we Brits also have very curious traditions and quirky views on life too%u2026.! I hope you feel inspired to leave some comments and join in the chat/chinwag about my blog. Tell me about places to go and see, ask me questions, and share your tales the USofA, or even the UK. Happy reading, lovely peeps. UKHousewifeUSA

I am a British expat living close to Washington DC.Together with my husband Jonny, we have three sons aged 20,18 and 12. I began my career as a teacher in London with a special interest in diagnosing and remediating mathematical difficulties. I worked in school administration and created and managed an educational support services department in an International School in Hong Kong. I also have a certificate in counselling skills and have worked as a volunteer coordinator for a Hospice in Maryland. I began writing posts in October 2011, when Jonny, a Head of School was hospitalized in terrible pain with a facial nerve condition called trigeminal neuralgia. I documented our roller coaster journey through Jonny's illness, brain surgery and recovery on a site called Lotsa Helping Hands.I finally understand the medical system and blog about life as an expat wife and mom on my blog which replaced the updates about my husband's health.
