The grass is not greener

Those of you that know me better, know that I completed an MA in Creative Writing. As part of that MA I started writing a book with the title: A different shade of green. This book is about my life in the UK and cultural clashes and funny stories etc.

Having moved back to Germany in 2019 made me even more aware of the fact that the grass is not greener on the other side, it is just a different shade of green.

After almost 20 years in the UK, I and still am struggling with certain German customs and just the general bureaucracy of the country.

I will write another post about certain details in a few days, because there are so many different levels. I also decided to finish my book. I need to get back into the writing mood and mode, as I would like to keep the funny tone going.

Moving country is of course not always funny and my husband is finding it much harder than me. In his case we rerouted an old tree. In my posts I will try show his side of moving countries as well.

As you can see, there is a lot of material I can use to finish my book.

There is one important fact I have learned by moving country twice: the grass is most certainly not greener, it is just a different shade of green. This applies to many situations in life as well.
