To say that it has been a long time since my last post would be an understatement. Everything has calmed down at home. The law has changed in England and same sex marriages are now legal. Kathryn and I are now a legally married same sex couple, un-consummated of course because neither of us are lesbian. I moved from working in Romania to a posting in Gabon with smaller amounts of time in Tanzania, Mozambique, Congo, Cameroon and South Africa. I had a few boyfriends in Gabon and one, one night stand which was horrendous, I won't be trying that again. I mean the one night stand not the boyfriends. I left the first boyfriend because of his insistence of attempting to keep me secret from his fiance. I wasn't serious enough to want him to leave his girlfriend but I also didn't want to be the secret mistress either. My relationship with my second boyfriend was defeated by distance, when I was moved out of Gabon by my company I had no way back so that was the end of that.
I am currently working in the UK, it is strange to be going to and from work every morning and evening after 25 years working random hours overseas and I'm still not sure I like it.
Anyway for those who have read my blog and were worried that there may be no happy ending, my family is still together, still living in the same household, therefore so far so good.
