We do work too - promise!

Just realised that our recent posts haven't really given any details about our everyday work.  We're at risk of you all thinking we're simply here on holidays!  Things are really busy here.  The normal day begins at 5 am, and currently we're finishing up around 8 in the evening by which time we're too tired to have fun or a social life!  We're glad that Norman and Fi are only away temporarily, because this is not sustainable!  But, amid lots of problems, we're really enjoying the work.  Lots of admin, building relationships, seeking child sponsors internationally, meetings with other NGOs, meetings with the children here... and language learning (which is most draining of all!).  Will write more later... but do be assured... we are actually working (promise!)...
