For those who know me and have also been following my personal journey and those who care, you will understand why I haven’t been able to post here. My mum had the operation ten days go and, so far, all is well. I will get back to blogging as soon as I can but it is not high on my list of priorities at the moment, as I’m sure you understand. Thank you to all the friends of THIS IS NOT MY COUNTRY who sent messages of love and support to me and mum. You will never know how much it helped.
