We've been back for just over a week and it feels like we've hit the ground running in terms of following up on contacts, establishing new contacts and working out a plan of attack as to what we do, where we go and who we see over the next few months.

The boys have slotted back into their routines smoothly and they're both delighted to be back with their friends at school & playgroup.

We're enjoying catching up with friends and getting into our fitness routines. Paula's been to the gym a few times and Dean's had a few good rides.

We've spent a bit of time in Chris Nissen and it's been great to catch up with our friends in there. We both felt our spirits had been lifted after spending just a few minutes with them. thankfully no-one seems to have died whilst we were away and the HOPE team have been doing a great job in our absence. Also, the Tiny Bubble créche has received its third container so they can now expand which is good news.

  1. Good to hear that you are back in S A after what looked like a great time in Spain and pleased that the flight back went well for you all - Good to hear that you are now fighting the flab after all the curries from the Red Fort!!
    Do keep us in Cheadle posted as to the developments.

  3. Hi Rebbecca

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. It's always great to meet new friends via the blogosphere.

    We took a look at your blog and liked it a lot. Tanzania remains a special place for us having served there for a year in 1998.

    Bless you

    Dean & Co
