Where I should be
Running around at work today, too much to do but feeling good because it's week 3 and I'm full of energy, it could be easy to forget where we were meant to be right now.
Somewhere in Uganda, where the hippos grunt their booming laugh, trying to work out how to run a backpackers' lodge.
A couple of weeks ago, in order to remind me of where we want to be, while we go through the routine of chemo, I ordered a massive framed picture of an old map of Africa.
It may not be a politically correct, or even geographically correct map (Uganda appears to not have been discovered when this map was drawn) but it's sitting on the desk to my right waiting to be hung on the wall, where it will stay to be looked at longingly from time to time.
And it finally gets something on my living room wall. It's been 18 months since I bought this place - you'd think I'd have got round to it sooner.
