Post Comment Love #PoCoLo 27th-29th January 2023

Great to see so many people joining in last week with Stephanie from Lifeat139a and I.

I've been pondering this month about what Life is about and in particular what my purpose is these days since the kids left home, 9 years ago and with our expat adventures firmly at an end, Hubby retired and me working 30 hours a week as a Teaching Assistant, no stress in our lives, no financial worries and reasonable health (except for bloody migraines) I've decided my role in life, aged 51, is that of an observer and I've linked up this week with a post just about that.

Do you think about the what next or do you just live in the moment?

Post Comment Love #PoCoLo is a friendly weekly linky where you can link up any blog post you've written this week and all we ask is that you leave a comment on either mine or Stephanie's post which you linked up through and at least one other post.

We'd also love it if you could RT us on Twitter when we tag you to help us reach a wider audience.

I'll be catching up with reading your posts from last week and this, sharing and commenting over the weekend.

  1. Yes, after our expat life was over, we returned to the US, but did not feel like we fit in there anymore. I think this happens to a lot of expats who have spent most of their working lives abroad. So we decided to go abroad on our own again, and after visiting a number of countries we ended up in France, where we are very happy. One problem was what to do with all this free time we now had, especially for my husband. We ended up helping to start a refugee aid organization, which is very successful and we feel we have something useful to do now. it started out mostly with Anglophone expats, but we are now a mixed French-expat group. I hope you find something you enjoy!

  2. sounds like you're keeping yourselves really busy and it sounds really interesting. We considered a move back to South Africa for retirement but covid hit and we ended up back in the UK
