We’ve been in Manila for just over 9 months now, so it feels like a good time to go back to the UK for a short visit. One thing that isn’t short is the length of my list of food to eat. Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries. Fish ‘n chips. Curry. My mum’s chocolate cake. And various other things. Can’t wait.
It’ll also be great to see family and friends after such a long time. Our niece, Lauren, who will look so different from when we saw her during Christmas 2012. Parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins. Very exciting. And they’ll get to see the ever-growing Harvey bump in 4D rather than just on Skype or photos.
Ah, and to have the freedom of having a car and being able to drive wherever, whenever we choose.
I may report back, on our return to Manila. Or I might find other topics, more related to the Philippines. Only time will tell.
