I’ve officially broken my promise to you… I didn’t post last month and therefore broke my promise about posting at least once every month. Most of you will know the reason why but if not… It’s because I’m “over the pond” for the summer working in America! I have been at camp since mid-May and only finally starting to get settled in properly. We also don’t have our phones on us while on camp boundaries so that also limits the times when I’m able to post.

Anyway, I just thought I would give you all a quick update and also ensure you all that I haven’t forgotten about you!I’ve been keeping a diary of the things I get up to so I can tell you all about it when I get home and actually have the time and means of being able to type up. So far, however, I’ve actually been doing pretty great – I haven’t been glued to my bed once involuntarily. Sure, I’ve struggled but for the most part I’ve been able to get up and go pretty easily – I don’t know whether it’s this good weather, a change of climate or just the adrenalin that’s keeping me going but whatever it is, I hope it doesn’t stop anytime soon because I just can’t afford for that to happen.

Regardless of how my body is feeling over here, I’m having a pretty good time in general. I’m learning a lot of things about America – with staff and kids coming from all over to camp and everyone is pretty awesome over here. There has also been some American terms that have snuck into my vocabulary annoyingly but you know, I’m here for 4 months in total so it was bound to happen!

Anyway, got to skoot. I’ll try and update “y’all” later but for now, goodbye! Big love.
