Finally got some sort of internet connectivity sorted out so I thought I would pop in and say hi.
We have been in South Africa for nearly two months now and loving it. The weather is fantastic, the kids are having a ball and for the most part we haven't looked back.
I have found that there is quite an antiquated way of doing things here and there is still a lot of racial inequity - but it's improving all the time. I can't do much without my husbands' approval - e.g. we have a joint bank account on which I can sign cheques, use the credit card etc, but I can't make changes to the way the account is run and they won't speak to me over the phone unless DH approves ... But on the plus side DS starts at a Private School which costs less than £900 per YEAR! and we have a housekeeper...
I have really missed the UK at Christmas time. Hope you are all well.
