It's been a week now since I got back from Uganda and it has taken all this time to get used to the food, weather and the pace back home. many things have changed in my short break away. We will all miss Rebecca as she moves on to new employment, I think we are still in denial that she has moved on.
Being back to work wasn't quite the culture shock I thought it would be but I still can't stop thinking about how things are in Africa. We have moved on so much from how things are there but to be honest despite some outcomes being restricted because of resources, their lack of documentation, protocols and policies does not have the negative impact I would expect. We are becoming to common place with the increase administrative work we carry out even though we do moan about it. I wonder if we could go back 27years ago and start again could we do things better.

J was on holiday after I got back so lots of time to get out and about and get used to life back here. Smudge of course enjoyed the walks too especially havin the weather to get to the beach. It took me a while to get used to the food and even cooking again as a bit spoilt in Africa having it done for me.
Everything else has resumed as well such as Bible studies, art class and coffee and craft. Everyone wants to know how my trip went but I hardly know where to start, you really have to be there to understand. We went to Newcastle to my favourite restaurant Vanilla and Smudge slept as she had had quite a run around Murlough beach.
