Back to Blogging

I've been really bad at keeping up my blog lately. Apart from the post I made about my Dad I've not posted since 1st June!! I got back to the UK mid-June and my Dad was admitted to hospital not long after that.....since then I've been travelling between Portsmouth and Stevenage visiting my Dad and I've not been in the right frame of mind for posting.

I'm going over to Sierra Leone this weekend for a couple of weeks to set up a child sponsorship program that I've been working on. I'm matching up people in the UK and US who are willing to help with a child's schooling in Sierra Leone with children who need sponsors. If anyone who has been to Sierra Leone with Mission Direct wants to sponsor a child please contact me.

When I get back to the UK I'll be going straight from the airport to Center Parcs for a family holiday - we're all sad that my Dad won't be there with us this year, but we've decided to still go and have some family time.

Although I've not been there much I'm still enjoying living in Portsmouth. Just today I head a racket outside and when I went to investigate say the Red Arrows doing a display. I was able to watch it all from our roof terrace - I love living in the city as there is always something going on. Last weekend we went to a kite festival!!!

I've not got much news from SL.......Abu has a nasty wound on his head - he told me that he's fallen down but when I investigated further it turned out that he'd be trying to hit his friend but missed and headbutted the wall behind!! Maybe that'll make him think next time he gets it in mind to hit his friend!

Sadly my Dad passed away on 13th August 2009.

He had struggled for a long time against his various illnesses.

My sister and I were with him when he slipped away peacefully.

I miss him so much.
