I’m 40

Well, here it is, the dreaded 40th birthday. A fuss free day, I’m having a tea party on Sunday to do the actual celebrating. Here’s some of the stuff I’ve been up to in the last year though.

Camping somewhere in the south west of England

A spot of camping (well, actually lots of camping)

Again, somewhere in the south west of England

Knitting while camping (that’s the Malagasy National flag under the Union Jack. It was knitted by a bunch of Explorer Scouts who were recieving training in learning a new skill without using the English Language. They did a pretty decent job!)

In Antananarivo, Madagascar

Wondering how to manage the health and safety of 68 Explorer Scouts when we take them to Madagascar next year.

Ranomafana, Madagascar

Meeting lovely new people

Suddenly, and without explanation, we cam across this stall at the side of the road in the middle of nowhere in Madagascar

Seeing strange sights on the side of the road

Ampefey, Madagascar

Going to unusual places

Oxfordshire, England

Failing to offload my rucksack onto my hiking companion (must get a bigger companion next time). And generally behaving as if I was 12 going on 13 rather than 39 going on 40!

    What kind of stove are you using? Looks like a cylindrical camp fire.
