About me and the blog

I’m a 30something British academic who has just moved from Britain to Chicago with my husband, also an academic, who’s got a job here. Some might call me a ‘trailing spouse’.  The weediness of that term explains why I’ve started this blog – to talk about my emigrating experiences, good and bad, to reflect on the differences between Britain and the US, and to review restaurants, shops and other things I like in Chicago.
