“Ermmm….. You know this school in Malawi? Do you think they may like me to do a teaching project out there?” the words fell out of my mouth.
“Yes!” Stu replied. And that was it, that was all I needed.
A year and a half later, here I am with just over a week to go before I fly. Feeling more human-pin-cushion than human-being, I’m ready… I think!!!
I’m inoculated up to the max, I have a plan, I’m expected both in school and in lodgings, I’ve got the coolest giganta books ever for my story-telling project and I’m dead dead excited!!!
Despite only going away for 4 months, I’m milking it this week with farewell camping trips, meals out and general fun-ness. I’m not looking forward to the moment when I actually have to pack. Thank you everybody who has donated so many resources, it is really appreciated, but now I’m actually going to have to lug the whole lot across Malawi, on bus…. It’s that or pay £150 in a taxi, no thanks!
I’m going to miss everybody, my friends, family, work colleagues , kids at school and especially my lovely boyfriend. I know it’s going to be hard being away for 4 months, but something of an opportunity that feels really important to me.
I’ve put quite a lot of thought into this project, all explained in detail on the pages in the navigation bar. Having a plan and doing something meaningful is imperative to me, yet I realise what may happen could be different to what I ever expected! Follow my blog and find out!
See you on the other side xxxxxxx
