And so it begins

And so it begins.

It didn’t feel real today when handing in university work, seeing mates, driving across the Peaks, and then having dinner with Mum.

But now I’m a mixture of very excited and a little petrified at the prospect of a month alone in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.

Perhaps my tiredness is speaking (frankly I’d rather be climbing into bed in Sheffield than boarding a plane) but I’m experiencing a sudden wistfulness. It’ll be the longest I’ve ever been away alone, and I’m feeling a deep sense of appreciation for my friends and family right now.

Of course, I’ll have a great time, come back, and then settle straight into taking you all for granted again like I’ve never been away.

Because all humans, including me, are probably a little bit fickle like that.

In the mean time, you’re going to have to put up with another month of blogging just like when I went away last March.
