As we were preparing to leave Kenya over a month ago we were asked several times how we thought we would adjust to life back in the UK. We confidently predicted that one of us would struggle and the other would be fine.
Which indeed is what has happened.
However it has happened the opposite way round from what we so confidently predicted…..
No doubt over the next few weeks and months it will shift again from the one to the other but it just goes to show that no amount of self-knowledge is a guarantee for how we will feel once we are in a situation.
We have now recovered from our various illnesses and are starting our tour of the south of England to visit various groups to talk about our work.
Apropos of which, if any of you are near to Chichester you are most welcome to join us for our “Welcome Home” event at the Vicar’s Hall, Chichester Cathedral on Wednesday 11th May, 6.00pm for a 6.30 start.
Meanwhile our friends in the North Rift are continuing the good work of peace-building and supporting people with disabilities and they too write of how they are adapting to our absence.
