TV stars ... Not!

Recently I (Kathryn) had two TV interviews on West TV and yesterday was on TV Arad along with Philip and some volunteers from a local organisation ' Ofensiva Tinerilor' (Youth Offensive). It's a bit scary but we felt it was well worth it for the people with whom we work. It gave us a chance to speak about our work and future dreams and plans as well as generally to say some positive things about Romania and Romanians! We love Romania and her people and hate the negative image created by certain groups.

Visiting around Scotland

Just two of the lovely people we had the privilege to get to know on our recent visit to the UK. Raj and his sister, Gurmel came to stay with our friends Gordon and Kirsteen Dutton while we were there and we had a great time getting to know them!

It's good to be back!

After all the traveling it was a relief to arrive back in Romania. As always on our return there is a lot to catch up with and at least one of our utilities cut off due to late payment - this time it was the phone, internet and tv ... well better that than water or electricity! It's good to see that activities at the Secret Garden have continued in our absence - we have a good team and they have worked well. It's so lovely to see the children again, we really miss them when we're away.
