How have your children settled now?

My children have settled very, very well, as you see they are not here, they've gone to sleep at friend's places and those friend's places are not what we call Zimbabwe people, they are natural British people, my eight year old has gone somewhere, my fourteen year old has gone somewhere. My fourteen year old is in to dancing and all this, she has participated recently on Monday in the Reading Carnival, she did Welsh dance today. They've integrated in to society and I've made sure they do because one way or the other, if you go to China, do what they Chinese do. There was no way I would tell them let's stay in the house and be ourselves because we are here and we don't know how long we are going to be, the only way you can integrate in to the society is being part of it.
