Ready to fly

We have a habit of getting important paperwork ready at the last minute.
On the eve of the elections I found myself driving across Kamapala to the British High Commission in order to collect the childrens new British Passports.

The children are both quite proud of their Ugandan & British nationalities as you can see here. Although, as a mother who has worked hard to get all this paperwork I was quite paranoid about how long I let them hold onto their own passports!

Aside from putting together a presentation and packing the suitcases (just small details) we are now ready to head off to UK & USA on Home Assignment.
We leave On 9th March - not long now...

Uganda's Elections

Elections here have been missed by most of the world because of all that is happening across North Africa.
Last Friday, the nation went to vote and we are thankful that it was all relatively peaceful. We had a polling station just 20 metres from our home and have had a heavy police precence on the road for a few days, so we stayed at home most of the time.
On Sunday 20th Feb, President Museveni was declared the winner. He has been re elected with 68% of the vote.
The opposition parties have already declared that they do not accept the vote, so we pray that in the coming days they will express their opinions in a peaceful way.
