I had a couple of days with my daughter in London and though the usual roadblocks curtailed the planned time we had, we made the most of what we got.
The weather has been terrible of late. Its a cold, wet,and windy English winter and I'm not going to miss it when I shoot off back to Asia in a week.
My 8 year old had her first "real" haircut last week and there was much flicking of the new fringe and stories of "you get a massage on your head when they wash your hair daddy!" related in minute detail. Not much to this post.
I just wanted to post pics of my kid.
There has been one sobering issue over the past little while:
It's seemed like every second day or so over the past 10, a text, email or voicemail has hit my Blackberry relating sad or tragic news from friends or friends of friends.
I'm not sure why this December seems to have brought tragedy to the lives of people I know, but its a rather sad reminder that as we head into the holiday season, there are many facing a bleak and sad time.
Bad stuff happens to good people and its hard to understand sometimes.
Being happy and healthy myself and blessed with a family in the same circumstances, I can only feel thankful and grateful.
I hope those of you not so fortunate can find your way through difficult times.
Love to all
