This time last year we were living a very calm and simple life in a beautiful and peaceful Myanmar - 2021 has brought an immeasurable amount of changes.
In February the Burmese government were taken down by corrupt military officials in a coup d'etat. A plan to hurriedly resettle in the UK was quickly put together, and after a torturous couple of months we finally flew home in April. After staying in Wales for a few months with family, teaching at our schools in Myanmar remotely, we were finally able to move to a home in Northamptonshire, England where we now live and teach.
Throughout the year, I continued illustrating and creating products on Zazzle. Our little store has thrived through all these challenging transitions, and I have loved watching each milestone. Better still, I have been so encouraged and overjoyed to read through reviews sent in by customers. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported Simply_Kids or Little Jungle Prints this year, your encouragement has been massively appreciated!
In 2022, we hope for more stability and more rest. We hope to make more memories with family and friends, and enjoy each day, whatever it brings. To all you wonderful people out there - we wish entirely the same for you. May your New Year be filled with happiness and a sense of purpose and place. If you ever need an ear to listen, please know I'm here.
Happy New Year all!!
