Well, it's been a tough few days!!! A very close family member has been diagnosed with cancer and is going to have to have an operation to remove the tumour. We have delayed our departure for a week (it wasn't possible to delay for longer) so that we can be around. I don't want to say too much but please keep all your fingers, legs, toes and eyes crossed that all will be well.
There is no internet access where we are staying so we are back relying on public library's - I will update when I can.
