      Hi Des!
      I’m so glad you liked the blog. You are a very thoughtful person and hence your opinion is all the more valuable to me. I very much enjoyed speaking to you and you gave me new ideas and things to think about. I’m a bit more worried about 21/12 now though! I wasn’t before.
      I hope you’re settling in well and wish you the very best with your studies this year.
      I hope our paths cross again one day!
      All the best,

    Have you left FB? Can’t seem to find you there. Please do keep in touch!

      Hi Shumon,
      Thanks so much for your message! I notice you sent it in 2014. Since then I have been unable to log into my blogs here as the password never worked!
      Actually I opened up another FB page as I had problems with that one and sent you a friend request/or message at that time but you did not respond.
      However now I’m totally out of FB as some con artists in India tried to extort a lot of money from me and were trying to lure me to India to kill me.
      I was warned by the Indian Government and they told me that I had been professionally profiled as having a face that showed I was likely to have a lot of time on my hands to chat and would be happy to hand over everything I had to friendly people!!!
      They recommended that I close down FB as these incidents were too common.
      So I have been thinking about you and wondering if you are still in Sierra Leone. I think that’s where you were? However I think you were only going to be there for a couple of years. Unfortunately Africa is becoming more and more unstable with the rise of these militant Muslim groups.
      For my part, I still write and do a bit of tax work. I have just come home from a Xmas/New Year cruise to Mexico and up through the Panama canal to Central American countries. I only just arrived home on the weekend.
      How is your daughter now? What is she doing?
      I hope you get this message. I’m so sorry I have had constant troubles with passwords etc. Because my messages weren’t coming through from my book website, I lost some orders from libraries and they only appeared on my computer about 2 years after I should have initially received them. Most annoying!!!
      Which reminds me…how is YOUR writing going?
      Well I hope I hear from you!
      Best Wishes,
