When I first came back to Singapore in 2001, I was gutted in so many ways. I had left so many loved ones who had pretty much been my family whilst I was away. They’ve never left my heart and I have to say I’m pretty thankful that work has taken me back to the UK every other year or so. And when I’ve managed to get myself ‘home, that everyone’s somehow managed to be in the same place so the getting together has been so precious.

This year is really looking like the year of the reunion. Not only did I get to see the uni bunch who all made it in from places like New York and Blackpool, but I also got to see the boarding school bunch. And next month, I get to see more down under. Things may be really busy sometimes, but I need to remind myself to be grateful for these little blessings.
