somewhere between facebook and flickr sits fiona


Directory > Europe > GermanyBerlin
I'm Fiona, a mother of 2 occasionally pleasant children, living in Berlin and getting to grips with the language and the culture day by day. I'm also attempting to re-start a career that's been on hold since I gave up sleeping whole nights (see children for details). I love Berlin, and all it has to offer. There's even a quaint charm to standing at the checkout and finding out for the 16th time that the bank has cancelled my card again and left me looking like a foreign idiot. My blog covers all my mishaps and social faux pas, and describes my encounters with all the culture shocks that take you by surprise and leave you bemused. Boys in tights? Uh-huh. Standing naked in an office while you have a 'chat'? Been there. Having your letting agent tell you when you can take YOUR holiday? Naturlich! Welcome to my wonderful life. Take a look round my blog. If I'm not there, you'll find me 'somewhere between facebook & flickr'...

  •  From under my cloud
    I blame repatriation. The other night someone linked to one of my old posts and let me know that they had and given the occasional oddness of my post titles I decided to go back and look at it to see what it was actually about. Not long after I finished laughing at my own jokes I ended up on one o...

    I'm not really one for blogging about issues in the news, but a friend just posted an article from the Telegraph on Facebook that has made me revise that idea. Have you heard the latest on the horsemeat story?The news is that they have discovered that IKEA meatballs have contained (or do contain in ...
  •  Save water, bath with a friend
    I love our bath. It is a real saviour and time eater during holiday times. It's the place where Orla & Hamish can actually get on and not argue for 10 minutes allowing me to wash the dishes or unpack a few boxes without having to involve me in everything they do. Orla and Hamish have had love...
  •  Plasticine rainbows & rock bugs... it's half term, not an acid trip.
    It's the first day of half term. In fact it's only 11am and already we've had our electricity meter changed for a nice new digital one, made rock bugs, plasticined a rainbow, secretly devoured some chocolate crispies before breakfast, and played trains. They've only been up 2 and a half hours! H...
