Hi as a UK mum raising teenagers in South Africa, I'd like to know if there are any plans to start an expat forum to meet others in isolation around the world. My latest blog post is about 'trailing spouses' and the difficulties we face, would be good to be able to reach out and meet others. www.chickenruby.com/2012/03/how-hard-can-life-as-expat-be.html
You could have a look in the Living Overseas section www.mumsnet.com/Talk/living_overseas
There are also some Mumsnet Locals for some overseas countries/cities - but, at a quick glance, I can't see any South African ones.
Hi there Suzanne What ORF said - we do have a Living overseas topic In the meantime i have moved this to bloggers, in case there are other bloggers who can help. I know MmeLindor is an expat for.e.g though I think she is moving back to the UK soon. <does that make you an ex-expat or just a pat?!?[groan]>
