Hi, I'm the teawife; originally from the German Hill Country of Texas. My hubby is a geoscientist (originally from N. Ireland); my nearly 12-year-old son goes to BSAK and was born in Malaysia when we were posted in Kuala Lumpur. My career was as a writer, editor, desktop publisher, web designer and a teacher of the above. However, all this ping-ponging of serial expat life has played havoc on my career. So now I spend a great deal of time on my favorite hobbies of rubber stamping and scrapbooking, and I share this obsessive madness with other ladies!
