Allergic Rhinitis I’m not an allergic person by and large. To my knowledge I’ve never so much as suffered an allergic reaction to anything (save, possibly, a pomegranate age 9, when I got a bout of colic the next day. Hmm). So it came as something of a surprise to find that my eyes have been … Continue reading Allergic Rhinitis
I sit down to do some chores, mostly online these days of course. I need a new pin for my credit card which I can’t order online, I have to telephone the bank’s 24-hour service. Fair enough. So I go to Skype, where my credit has run out. In order to buy more credit I … Continue reading Frustration

Nairobi Railway Museum
I felt I didn’t do this place justice last time I mentioned it, in passing so to speak. So a quick entry all about the wonderful Nairobi Railway Museum. It’s tucked away behind the station proper and a university, down a dusty road so long you think you’ve gone wrong. But finally you get there, … Continue reading Nairobi Railway Museum

So the wheels got trapped in the gap which must be … Continue reading There’s a Hole in my Baby!
Alfie Update II
I marvel at our boy every day. It seems he has a spurt of development now and again and in the last 4 days he has come along leaps and bounds. He now walks with confidence. He just decided one day last week that he was confident enough to take off without a ‘parachute’ (mummy … Continue reading Alfie Update II
So our flight is booked for Sunday 12th September. It’s a night flight with BA so we’ll be arriving home early Monday, the day before Alfie’s birthday.I’m looking forward to it but I also have mixed feelings.
