Newsflash – the latest from my daughter

You often hear of my daughter referred to as Thing I in these pages. Over on her own blog she goes by the name Amory Powell instead.

Since we’ve been back in the UK it’s been a bumpy ride for her – dealing with moving home, country and school as well as leaving so many friends and memories behind in Bangladesh. She’s also had to work hard to keep up with a different pace in life at a school which lets the kids out at 5 pm every day, arms full of homework! The result has been not a lot of time or energy for writing her own blog.

But today she has been ill and taken the day off school. I don’t blame her: I’m poorly too and I know it sucks. For both of us that has meant the opportunity to write and read more than usual. So Thing I has written a short post about her feelings at the moment stuck between a rock and a hard place in this weird British life.

If you’ve not read her blog before, please take a look at the latest post and maybe hang out there a while to read some of her stories and poetry. If you like what you see, why not sign up and follow the blog? It’ll be a while before she’s writing so much you can’t keep up – I promise 😉

About D K Powell

British freelance journalist, author, writer, editor, musician, educational consultant. I lived with Wifey, Thing I (daughter) & Thing II (son) in Bangladesh for 5-6 years working for an NGO called LAMB. Wifey led the Hospital Rehab department and I used to teach O levels at the school before going full-time as a freelance writer in 2013. Now we're back in the UK learning how to be British again. When not writing or editing, I'm busy trying to complete a Masters degree in Intercultural relations in Asian Contexts and reading way too many books at once. I also drink tea - lots of it.

    I’m following your genius of a daughter! She writes flawlessly for her age, most teenagers can’t write without the odd word ‘like’ in every phrase. I’ll be reading her blog as often as I can! 🙂
