There are a lot of lists in our house at the moment as we prepare to leave for Eldoret…some of them are in our heads, recited regularly and eccentrically in the somewhat vain hope of embedding them into memory. Then there are those written on scrappy pieces of paper which seem to vanish just at the vital moment when they are really needed and eventually turn up under the microwave or in a rucksack long after their usefulness has expired.
Then there are the new lists.
These are being worked on this week. They contain lists within lists.They are typed and beautifully hand-written. They are colour coded with lots of opportunities for feeling progress is being made.
David says he feels he is listing like a sea-going vessel…..But sometimes, only a list will do the trick.
