“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost.”

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. So I’ll give those of you who are interested a little update on life in Uganda. After the Christmas holidays we moved house. This was a good move, I now don’t have to listen to the sound of a club keep me up all night which alone makes me happy. It was strange returning when alot of the people I had been spending time with had left Uganda. I’ve met some more people since and life is good. I think I’m just getting used to people coming and going now and trying to make the most of the time you can spend with people. It also really makes me appreciate the stability of family and friends back home.

For our half term holiday in February we took ourselves off to Mombasa for a week. It was so wonderful to get away and to be by the coast again- it had been 6 months since I last saw the sea. I first visited this beach on a family holiday when I was 11 and it was so nice to go back and relive some happy memories.

We spent the second half of our week north of Mombasa by Kilifi creek. This week was filled with lots of outdoor and water activities. I was in my element.

I feel a little addicted to booking flights at the minute. Before my departure for Mombasa I booked flights to Mexico for a summer adventure around Central America. Upon return I had some post holiday blues so booked a flight to Cape Town for Easter. It gives me something to work towards to and save for. I figure I might aswell make the most of my 20 somethings. Plus, I get to spend these times with some of my nearest and dearest friends. I have a feeling 2014 is going to be a good un!

Aside from work and my many travels I’ve been trying to invest some more time in Jandira village. I’m going there this weekend to attempt to make a promotional video in the hope of gaining some funds for the project. Watch this space!

(Oh! And I got and beautiful new little nephew Luke McMullen! Welcome to the world Luke! I can’t wait to meet you! I have the most wonderful line up of nieces and nephews and miss them dearly everyday. Looking forward to family times in summer!)
