As midnight passed on New Year’s Eve and 2010 began, I looked at my husband sitting beside me, thought about our two children sleeping upstairs and realised that we’d been married for the best part of a decade, and that we’re still speaking to each other.
As I am English and he is Macedonian I felt that this achievement was perhaps even greater than usual, having had cultural barriers to cross and linguistic misunderstandings to clear up, not to mention having only one grandparent, my father, in England where we live, to help with that elusive pot of gold, free childcare.

This can cause anything from a sore throat to cardiac arrest.
I am not yet convinced, but am very careful not to say so in certain circles in the Balkans.
This summer we are going on holiday with my husband’s family.
