Finding Common Ground Part 9 – From Cornwall to Cairo

This weeks FCG blogger is Rachel from ‘Cornwall to Cairo’ – I was contacted by her recently and I was intrigued by her situation, especially as some of the frustrations she is currently going through are things that I have also battled with.

Blog of the day – The Indian Homemaker

Yes, I know – I have posted this blog on my page before and it is also featured in my inspired section – but I really love The Indian Homemaker!

Her posts are relevant, interesting, witty and emotive. She blogs about a huge range of issues that impact the modern woman, with a particular focus on cultural/traditional issues in India.
