We had a lovely weekend catching up with various godparents, friends and their children and enjoying good food and quite a lot of entertainment.
But the desperate situation in Haiti was never far from my mind.
The expression of joy on the face of two-year-old Redjeson Hausteen Claude as he was reunited with his mum after two days trapped under rubble is a powerful reminder that there is hope, but survivors are still desperately in need of water, food and shelter and rescue efforts are continuing. Which is why I'm giving what I can to the Disasters Emergency Committee in aid of Haiti today. You can donate as little as a fiver here. Not much, but something.
