Christmas 16: Beach
Same beach at sunset
It has been such a busy time of year. I didn’t realise how
tired I was at the time, but reading back over the highlights of this festive
season, I have realised why I have been so tired. Not only have allthe special
programmes been going on, but on top of that, normal life of living and working
in another country, culture and language. I have still been working in the
schools, Orphaids and Laura Flores trying to do some speech and language
therapy amongst the busyness of Christmas.

After Christmas I went to the beach. It was
heaven. To get away. Be somewhere sunny. Not have any worries or things to do.
I slept a lot. I swam in the sea a lot. I just love the sea and could have
stayed in there for hours. I have come back recharged, refreshed and excited by
what the New Year brings.
