We have been back for almost five months now - that is so hard to believe. It really seems like a moment ago we stepped off the plane. Last Sunday we were doing a church visit and showing our presentation, it's beginning to feel strange seeing the photos from your previous life on the screen. We put the Christmas tree up on the 1st December, last Saturday. The children are getting excited. It's the first time for them that we have the gentle change of seasons from summer, though autumn and into winter. Before it was baking hot summer, onto a plane and arrive freezing. We're also house hunting and Eileen has an interview for a teaching job. Teaching posts are very rare in the current climate in Northern Ireland, so it is very encouraging she is called for interview to the first one she applied for. If anything the interview experience will be worth it.
