Back to the U.K. via Beijing

We did not get around to preparing a post at the weekend as we were busy preparing for both our holiday back in the U.K. and for the medical team arriving from Honiara. Jenny is determined to leave the house clean and tidy so we don’t come back to rats! So floors have been swept & washed, walls, ceilings & windows washed and sprayed with “Mortein” as a deterrent to ants and cockroaches. At the same time she was preparing to feed the medical team of four, doing their first tour to the West Province to see some of our more challenging medical patients and those with chronic diseases. The team comprised Dr Elizabeth, Dr Alan, RN Ellen and the dietician Sarah. We had a very enjoyable evening with them on Sunday before having two extremely busy days. It was a great success and they hope to return next year.
We can now concentrate on our departure tomorrow. We are very excited to be spending 2 nights in Beijing to catch up with Peter, before flying on to Manchester. We hope to have plenty of time with Katherine, Christopher and Rachel and the rest of the family, but will probably be limited for time with friends. We do however continue to value your friendship and support, and look forward to catching up one way or another.
