Next month I miss claires wedding and I am gutted about it. It is horrid to miss such special times and even worse as Claire has been telling me about Clare and Pru's beautiful bumps and I may not even get to see them until they have had their babies. We are missing so many peoples special moments and sad times when we should be there for them and the phone is not enough. It is horrible to miss things and such is the life we have - when we are in England we miss people here and visa versa. Kwajo and Nayah of course now face the same problem as Kwajo misses Jack, Unity, Faith and all his other friends but when he gets home he will miss Benty, Kwaku and all the other kids (and Nayah is going to be devaststed to leave her constant supply of besotted and doting Uncles). Most especially I expect they will miss the freedom of going to play with friends on a whim which they simply do not have in England. But now we have a greater appreciation of what we have in England - not least friends, family and the forest. So we miss you all hugely and when we do get back we will miss home here, To have two places to love though means double the number of wonderful people in our lives and now we have two houses for the next few years we can move back and forth more easily. For now we send all our love and very best wishes to those whos special times we are missing. We are trying to concentrate on our happy memories with you and looking forward to the good times to come.
