We just put the guys to bed and I'm now taking deep breaths and collecting my thoughts. I know I promised you all some broccoli and cheddar soup, but I've been massively busy these days and I can't deliver on that just yet. Tomorrow I leave for a five-week work trip: three weeks in Iran, and two weeks traveling over Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia. In my other life when I'm not stepmothering, I'm a tour manager, which means that I go on holiday with groups of American tourists and make sure that everything goes smoothly for them throughout their trip. It's a great job, but it's also hugely stressful, because I basically get to do all the worrying for a large group of people while traveling across sometimes unstable parts of the world. I won't be updating my blog while I'm away, but I'll report back when I come home in late October.
Looking forward to seeing you all on my return,
P.S. Aw, I must have subconsciously picked the title of this post as a little tribute to Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary, who passed away yesterday. Rest in peace, Mary.
