Me in a nutshell:
I am an associate professor of Linguistics, just turned 40 and originally from Finland. My husband is English and we have two wonderful children, one of whom was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was 11 months old. I lived in England for 14 years before we moved to Japan. My husband still works in England and our lives are currently divided between Osaka and Brighton.
I’d like to think I am quite outgoing, bubbly – even funny (you can be the judge of the latter). I write about our experience of living in Japan and about our life overall with a pinch of humour – please don’t get offended!
I welcome any comments – good or bad, and if you like my blog posts and would like to receive an email whenever I upload a new post please press ‘follow’ on the left of the page.
I hope you enjoy my posts and can come back soon.
