I am brand new to the Geneva life. I am an American, but have lived the last three years in England. I know being an expat parent is really tough. It is hard moving to a new country without family or friends. Those of us who are stay at home parents can struggle to make new friends in a foreign place.
So I am going to be honest. I am looking for mum friends who like to drink wine, watch bad tv, and whine about our kids & spouses. I love my family and our life here. That doesnt mean they dont drive me insane sometimes!! However being here without my family or friends is really hard.
I dont speak french.
I am super sad about the fact that they sell horse meat here.
I love love love a good rosé wine.
I think the swiss money looks like monopoly money.
I love to read science fiction and fantasy.
I own an abusrd amount of pens, but can never find any of them.
I cry wathcing every Pixar movie.
I believe in the power of coffee, I do not make the school run without my thermos.
I could eat nothing but cheese & olives.
I have purple hair most days, sometimes I go pink just to confuse my husband.
I was overly excited by owning a clothes dryer for the first time in 3 years.
I think Back to The Future is a masterpiece that can never be remade.
I miss our dog Watson terribly, and cannot wait for her to join us here.
I cannot explain how much I miss great Mexican food.
I love my son more than anything.
I also like my husband, I love him when he does the dishes.
I am 30, but I constantly keep forgetting that until my 5 year old loudly reminds me.
I miss my family terribly, but am beyond grateful for FaceTime.
I am terrified of spiders.
I think Thomas the Tank cartoons are torture and refuse to allow them in our home.
I also believe stepping on a Lego is a parenting right of passage.
So this is me. If anyone out there is looking for a mum friend, I am available. LOL. Cheers.
