Cool quote?

"I feel bad for people who play tennis or basketball or football or whatever. Where's the adventure in playing inside the painted lines? Can you imagine someone from the racquet club sneaking halfway around the world by plane, boat and rickshaw based on a sketchy rumor of a killer tennis court on the edge of a jungle that no one had ever played on before? What we take to be normal isn't even part of the sporting equation for the rest of the world. And thank God for that."

We have moved...

Well, I have moved jobs, home and gone on holiday abroad all in the space of 4 weeks. The removal company collected all our belongings on the 12 Dec and we left for our Christmas holiday in SA on the 13 Dec. While we were sunning ourselves on the beaches, our stuff ended up in boxes in our new home. We arrived back in the country on the 6 Jan to a new home in a new village, not knowing anyone - cool!

The first week has run very smoothly, as we have managed to unpack almost all our boxes and hang a couple of pictures, teach some lessons, do some shopping, visit a local church, travel into London, have friends over for a day and get some sleep.

Thanks for all prayers and best wishes.

About me

I am an African living in Scotland. A son, a father, an ex-husband, a boyfriend, a teacher and friend trying to piece together the stories that my God, my parents, my ex-wife, my girlfriend, my pupils and my friends are telling me, so that I can tell my own story. Thanks to all for your support and advice. I still love good coffee and popcorn.
