The ‘w’ thing has taken up a lot of my time since I have arrived. It is hard work and expectations are high. 5 duties a week, meetings (boy, do they like meetings!) and lunch times spent serving and eating with a table of pupils, frequent cover, running club etc etc ... non-contact time is precious. But I am getting there and although it is early days, I am so enjoying it and can’t see me wanting to leave for a while. (Which is not how everybody feels...the bets are on!)
Some things have slipped...like my running...but I know I will get back into it with time. My 6am training sessions are helping me get back on track. I have run a few times since I arrived, but the change in altitude really hurts!
Little accomplishments feel so good at the moment ; getting into a routine at the lunch table (seriously, this seemed a mammoth task), learning new names, learning the route to the ‘w’ place off by heart and finding an amazing place close by for pedicures!! And I feel this week is going to be a good one-my boxes are leaving Uganda tomorrow (hip hip hooray!) and my Surf is being delivered...at some point in the near future!
