Kym is a 40-something Aussie who has lived in the UK since January 2004. She spent her formative years in parts of Australia that have been subjected to either savage bushfires,cyclones with innocuous-sounding names or have been under water – sometimes all three. Faced with the challenges of time and distance when staying connected with family and friends back in Oz, she started her blog Gidday From The UK, which not only became their glimpse into her ‘everyday moments’ but reignited her passion for writing and she still wonders where it all might lead.
