Malaysia and Asia are now far behind as we have returned to the UK for a refuel and refresh before considering our Camino pilgrimage later this year.
This is a time for seeing family and friends in the UK. It has been 5 months since we left for Hong Kong and it feels good to be able to spend time with familiar faces.
We have returned to a cold spell. 4c was the daytime high and we expect nightime temperatures below freezing every night this week. This is the coldest since we left Nepal in November. Today had a fabulous sunrise and barely a cloud in the sky. We could not have been rewarded with a better display of winter weather.
Also we are exploring what we will be doing in terms of meaning and purpose. We have been invited to be live in carers for a couple who require more care than local health and social care services can provide. We met the family today and all being well we will begin on 1 February.
We have a bit of jet lag and some sniffles. So we will have a few days respite and then we will blog again.
