This week my nephew and nieces went back to school and we began to think about returning home. With all the cold weather in the UK it's going to be a big shock to the system to leave 34 degrees Cape Town and step off the plane in Manchester.
Last week we had a family weekend away in Hermanus with all my family here. Hermanus is famous for its whales although there are not many around at this time of year.
We look forward to seeing you next week, God willing. Prayers for the journey back would be appreciated. The girls will be going back to school, Sian will be getting us all back into family routine and I will be heading down to London towards the end of next week to begin the study 'leg' of my Sabbatical (see Sabbatical Update - Week 1 to see what I will be studying).
