The truth About Our Unhappy Lives.

I simply can’t understand why people often say how exciting our lives seem to them. The reality is that being a serial expatriate is extremely challenging and stressful and I just can’t hide it anymore. It is time people knew the truth. We began this terrible expat existence in the USA. We were forced to … Continue reading »

Prancing around Prague

Welcome to an insightful and unique photographic overview of Prague taken from the perspective of…well…me! (Warning: If you are hoping for a useful travel guide then you may just be a tad disappointed). Prague is an amazing city with incredible architecture, gorgeous cathedrals…oh… and handsome men. But unfortunately it is fairly overrun with tourists (how annoying … Continue reading »

Skeletons, Torture and Sinful Pleasures.

I have just been dying (get it?) to tell you about my visit to the Cemetery Church of All Saints (or Bone Church) that I made recently with my son Jarred. It all began after we had spent a wonderful few days in Prague (though I felt there were too many tourists but Jarred thought … Continue reading »

But enough about me. What about you?

A friend told me recently that we tend to compare our insides to other people’s outsides, which may seem obvious, but  had not really occurred to me. Given that I am constantly exposing my insides to all and sundry in this blog, I thought it would be so helpful for my self esteem issues if you all show … Continue reading »

Why Worry When You Can Panic?

I like to worry about things. If I have nothing to worry about then I worry about that.  I should just stress over important issues such as global poverty, world peace and the environment (issues which do concern me by the way) but I mostly spend way too much time worrying about my own selfish and often pathetic concerns. I … Continue reading »

Children or dogs? The final poop scoop!

Welcome to my first blog for 2013.  This year,  I have decided that instead of all the usual silly stuff on stalking rugby players and sleepy husbands, I  will take on much more serious topics. What better way to start than with the overpopulation of the planet? I have friends who choose not to have children for that and … Continue reading »

Boring Kiwis, Scary Italians and Annoying Americans

I have some good news and some bad news, well for me anyway. The good news is that my trip to Europe was fantastic. I mainly went to visit my son Jarred, who is studying in Zurich, and visit with the All Blacks in Italy. But that’s the bad news as my rugby player stalking continues to be … Continue reading »

More on Stalking, Pole Dancing plus Airline Discrimination.

“My blog is baaaaack,” (she said in a creepy horror movie voice) and just as you were starting to think it was safe to go back on the internet. I feel I should update you on where we last left off at my last floundering post.  (see http://www.faysflounderings.com/2012/10/02/stalking-rugby-players-and-pole-dancing/) The rugby player stalking did not go as well … Continue reading »

To spa or save the world; a tough choice.

My son suggested via Skype that as a birthday surprise for his father, he and his sister could treat us to a night at a spa resort he had found on the internet. “What a fantastic idea! ” I shouted excitedly (I tend to speak louder over Skype, much like my mother did on long distance phone calls regardless of the phone … Continue reading »

Things I am not very good at: Handling uncommunicative males

The men in my family constantly leave me starved for information. (I have not named them in order to protect their identity). It is bad enough that my husband falls asleep while I am talking, but my son also seemed to learned from a very early age that telling his mother things was something to be avoided at all … Continue reading »
