Today I spoke in Herbie's assembly about my trip and asked the children to write short letters with photos attached for me to take. I'm hoping to do the same when I'm out there to bring back. They had lots of questions to ask about my trip, and I found myself suddenly beyond excited and close to tears.
Children are so honest and blunt,and questions like 'what do the children look like?' And what are their names?' Not to mention one boy asking me who's going to look after Herbie and Maimi, will they be alright? Ooh that got me.....
It's becoming real now and what with my mum returning from her own African adventure next Monday I am beside myself with a plethora of emotions!
