Over and out
I have had the most amazing time in Cambodia, and I feel very privileged to have had the opportunity to live and work in such an interesting and welcoming place. Overall it has been a fabulous experience for me, and hopefully I've done some good for the people there
It's good to be home though, and it's surprising how quickly I'm getting used to life here. I am loving being able to communicate easily again, and it's been great to come back to the British cuppa, jeans and boots, Strictly Come Dancing and the run up to Christmas.
Many things are much as I left them, which is good for me. My greatest pleasure has been in catching up with family and friends, not forgetting Cappucino the cat. I've rejoined Quintasia, my singing group, although I won't be performing with them until the new year, and I'm looking forward to dusting down my vocal tubes and singing again. I'm back to work in a slightly different role with the PCT, and - joy of joys - am now based at Bexhill Hospital which is a healthy 25 minute walk from my house. I seem to have missed a horrendous two-year NHS reorganisation, and am returning at a time when things are beginning to settle down - what great timing! Although there have been a lot of staff changes in my absence, I will be working with many great old friends as well as some lovely new ones.
I have a number of fun pre-Christmas celebrations lined up, and will be spending Christmas in the Isle of Wight with all my family.
As I am no longer "Alison in Cambodia", this will sadly be my last blog posting. I have enjoyed updating the blog over the last two years, and it will remain on the world wide web as a record of my experience. Thank you for reading it, and for all the interest and support I have received while I've been away.
Over and out!!
