Well our lovely neighbours left Ghana today. Aubrey’s sister and children flew out from Accra and her husband will follow in a couple of weeks. In the end it was all quite sudden although we knew that they would be cutting their time short here in Ghana as they have found it particularly tough with a young family in this heat with the unpredictability of every day life. It can really drain ones energy.
Needless to say we are gutted, well I am. The children are as adaptable to change as ever and have only mentioned it a couple of times to me today – we’ll see what tomorrow brings! I feel I have lost an ally, a confident, an inspiration, someone to laugh with, delight in the children with and generally help me feel less isolated.
Well, old neighbours, you have not missed anything today other than no electricity and no water since lunch time. I am rather desperate for a refreshing shower seeing as it’s been another usual hot and humid day, but my joy for when the water comes back on will compensate for it having been off!
Thank you so much for everything whilst you were here. Sadly bubble painting may never be the same again, or should I say ‘never be again’!
On being shown a group photo that the taxi driver, Kwaku, had taken and cut Aubrey’s head off in he said ‘oh, maybe it is the way you are standing’……
