At the beginning of 2000 Mary’s late husband, Pat, was working as Training Manager for a global Engineering company. When he was posted to the Philippines Mary accompanied him: they lived there for two years, in the Provinces, some distance from Manila.
Life there was unfamiliar, interesting, exciting and often downright challenging; Mary started a journal which she continued during subsequent postings to Egypt and China, detailing the often-humorous day-to-day events which made up their lives and featuring many of the fascinating people whom they met, both local and expat. Mary also started painting in the Philippines and continued throughout her time overseas. In response to a number of requests she has finally turned these journals into a book, using her own paintings, line-drawings and photographs.
The book, ‘Watercolours and Weevils’ is ‘a light-hearted look at ex-pat life’ and is published at £12
