Hi Everyone,

[Please, bear in mind that English is not my mother tongue and if I make any mistakes, I am very sorry. You have full right to correct me anytime. Thanks!]


I am Marlena and that includes being:

  • MUM – to cute, beautiful, smart and sometimes stubborn son Fabian (toddler)
  • WIFE– to amazing husband who I am crazy in love with (and vice versa, I guess πŸ˜‰ )
  • DAUGHTER– to beloved parents who mean everything to me and wonderful parents-in -law
  • SISTER– by marrying my husband I gained two fantastic sisters I always wished for (buy 1 get 2 free deal :P)
  • FRIEND– I have few close friends who mean a world to me
  • WOMAN– I am very feminine and just love being a woman πŸ™‚
  • LAWYER– after having 2 Master Degrees in Law I have finally realised I do not like 80% of law… luckily, I love the remaining 20% πŸ™‚
  • PIANIST– in fact, unfortunately, I am ex-Pianist; over the last few years I have not practised as I did before through my whole life
  • BLOGGER– let’s see about that… πŸ˜‰

On top of that I am famous for having the cleanest house in the neighbourhood and making the best honey & lemon tea !!!

I love a glass of champagne and I hate toilet seat left up, grrr.


I am part of a very typical family of 3 as you will learn now πŸ™‚

I am Polish, European and Christian (Roman Catholic).

My husband is British (ex-Indian), Asian and Sikh.

Our son is trilingual (Polish, Hindi & English) British kid with Polish & Indian roots.

We strongly respect each other’s customs, beliefs and celebrate together all festivals and holidays.

We live in multicultural family in Britain and enjoy everything that comes along with it.

We are very typical, aren’t we? πŸ™‚


In fact, it is not only us- we all create fusions (friendship, marriage, partnership, living abroad) that are fabulous. So every one of us/every one of you is a part of these FABULOUS FUSIONS.

Welcome to your website then! :)))


This blog is designed to help other multicultural families.

I do hope this place will be some kind of discussion platform for:

  • people in mixed relationships- not only Polish/Indian, but all possible other mixes πŸ™‚
  • people living abroad- not in their motherland (fatherland/homeland- whatever you call it)
  • people with young children
  • people who love life (carpe diem!)
  • people who love travelling
  • people who love cooking
  • EVERYONE!!! – regardless of age/sex/race/religion/political views

My posts and articles concern many aspects of living in a multicultural family including parenting, raising multireligious & multilingual child, balancing different points of view, cooking/various cuisines, travel and overall lifestyle.

I invite you to join me on my journey through life. I promise, you will not be disappointed πŸ™‚

  1. I was so happy to read your article. My husband is German, I’m Mexican and our daughter was born in England. We found it natural as well to speak in our own languages to our daughter who now is 21 months. I speak Spanish, Portuguese and English quite fluently and Danish, I started forgetting because of learning German,(too similar and still pretty foreign) which now I understand, so my husband tries to speak to me in German and I reply in Spanish (but it is quite and effort) at least during meal times. My husband speak four languages German, Spanish, French and English. We have many friends that speak our languages and we even found baby groups for each language.
    Unfortunately, we have found that at least in the German speaking group most children are only speaking English, even if the parents speak only German to them. And some kids in the Spanish group don’t say much even though their peers, from monolingual families, speak several words and even sentences.
    The purpose of all of this was to explain how these observations got me really concerned. I really needed to read cases of success. I want my daughter to speak all three languages for the same reasons you mention: Grandparents and extended family, multiculturalism and wide perspective of the world and closeness to us, and who we are.
    So your article really speaks to me. Thank you.


  2. Hello Marlena! I’m so happy you dropped by my blog (and joined as a follower) so that I could be introduced to yours πŸ˜‰ I too am an expat, a Canadian living in Bali – an endlessly fascinating (and sometimes) place to live. I feel more like a global citizen, fitting in everywhere and nowhere at once. And oh by the way, I’m also a “reformed” lawyer! Looking forward to following your adventures in writing and life.
