I’ve been asked to go back to Afghanistan for a month, to lend a hand. Leadership is a bit thin, following some security incidents, and the team has drawn down to a minimum. In June/ July, it will drop a bit below that minimum, and that is where I step in.
It is nice to be asked to help.
Separately, but also importantly, I learnt how to use magic hem tape. Pieta has a concert for school on Wed and Thurs this week, and the material of the dress she is to wear is too fine to sew without leaving picks in the fabric. With an impressive degree of patience and skills honed in woodworking, I marked out the hem line, applied the tape, and ironed it up, raising the dress 8cm.
