right now

I’m in Istanbul!

I’ve been here a little over 9 hours and have about 3 more to go till I board the plane for a flight to Singapore.  Yippee, I’m on my way to meet Renee half way.  She’ll make her way from Sydney to Singapore and then we’ll both make the trip back home.   It’s long and tiring but we do what we have to do.

I’m excited.  I think she’s excited too.  I also think my daughter will be happy to be finally DONE with year 8.  Because she changed from the American curriculum to the Australian one she had to do the back end of year 8 again.  I don’t think she was too happy about that.  But it’s done and now we can all look forward!

Well December is finally here and even as I sit here at Starbucks drinking my Christmas inspired drink I can hear Christmas songs in the back ground.  It’s lovely!


Anyway I  hope your week has started well and your going strong.

BTW in case you were wondering – in my last post I posted about Movember – well just wanted to share that our community raised over 2 million tenge for the cause – which converted into just over 13 000 USD.  I thought they did great.  And the kids at school raised just under 60 0000 tenge. 

So Awesome!!

Sounds like Renee will be spending her Christmas holidays in Australia - what will she do? So glad you get to spend time together now!
