After taking Srey Nek and Srey Pek out to the airport to pick her up ( at Sarah’s insistence ), we headed back to the apartment where Sarah and Grace came together like magnets and the attraction was mutual and automatic. Poor old Sarah toted 30kg of baby presents over to Cambodia from the family and we were soon enjoying a bottle of wine or two and a present opening session to rival 5 Christmases arriving at once. I even go to open some lovely …ahem …….40th………birthday presents for myself. The family really spoiled little Grace and she now has some beautiful clothes,toys and knick knacks to keep her happy. BIG THANKS TO ALL THE FAMILY !!
The next five days went all to quickly and were a whirlwind of shopping ( clothes for Sarah, more things for Grace ! ),dinners,lunches and family parties, including an early ….ahem…..40th……birthday party for me which saw friends arriving on a wet night for a bbq.

The trip out to Ponchentong airport with Sam the Driver was a sad one. I know we will see Sarah regularly but when you are living so far away from family, it makes it very hard when they go and I also realised that Grace is going to be growing so quickly and my family are going to miss it which was a bit painful as well.
