Wine & Whine Mum Friends Wanted

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.

If folk eat pork, beef, lamb, chicken, rabbit et al., what’s so awful about eating horse?


It’s perfectly edible and very nutritious.


You have to eat a peck of dirt before you die.
