Sabbatical Update - Week 3

Today we celebrated my mother's 70th birthday with a lunch. All her children were there along with her six grandchildren. It was wonderful to be able to do this with the family in Cape Town.

Anwen has not been herself since we arrived so we decided earlier this week to take her to the doctor. It turns out she has an ear infection and sinusitis. After paying for the consultation and then the medication I was much more appreciative of the NHS! It can get expensive.

This week will be more of the same, enjoying time with family and hopefully catching up with some old friends. The cousins are all getting on brilliantly for which we are so thankful. The kids are keen to go swimming with the penguins so we'll make sure we fit that in. (I'm serious this time! Google boulders beach Cape Town.)

Regarding the study, I have now confirmed with The John Owen Centre in London that I will have an initial meeting on 29th January to talk through a study plan. I am really looking forward to this.

Thanks for all your encouragement and prayers.
