19th January – The lovely Debbie’s send-off and fundraiser to support her VSO placement in Ethiopia was an Ethiopian-flavoured evening with food and quizzes. Have to admit to being a bit cliquey and staying with the people I knew, which meant they saw how little I really know about world affairs. Did I get even one question right? But lovely food – a sort of dry spicyness I’d definitely like to try again – and a great evening. Publishing this two months into Debbie’s placement – my inspirational friend who probably packs 50 firsts into most of her regular weeks!
