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 😉
