Flying Solo


Due to another Nepali Admin saga that is just too long and dull to type out, I am in Sauraha with the 3 rug-rats while Fergus has had to go on a 3 day mission to Kathmandu to get a parcel of goodies that we’ve had sent to us.

Now, I know that in the not too distant past I used to be able to look after all my children on my own with no issues, so I’m not sure why I feel so nervous about it!

Maybe it’s having Scarlett on crutches; maybe it’s being in a foreign land; maybe it’s that we have 3 Daddy’s girls who hang on his every word; maybe it’s that I’ve just not had to do it for so long; but it feels like a big challenge.

Anyway, I sat them down and explained how we’d have to work as a team to make it fun while Daddy’s away, and how we have to do extra good behavior. I was asked in turn to also do extra good behavior and not be strict or shout. So we have a deal.

And the Dairy Milk and hour in an internet cafe with a computer each won’t hurt either.

So far, so good…!

I'm a 41 year old mother of triplet girls, who are the centre of my universe. I'm an active, busy person: I commute, work full time, regularly run & am learning the piano. Life has been good. I've recently been devastated by my husband's diagnosis of an astrocytoma glioma - an invasive brain tumour that there is no cure for. This blog is Fergus's story, told from my viewpoint.

        It’s only about 24 hours to go now, if all goes to plan.
        The girls are happy, but really missing their Daddy.
        I so hope he has the parcel!
