I travelled along the corridors, turning left then right, along another windowless stretch. On and on, past the room of sticky substances, skirting the place of skeletal photography. No sounds but the swish of small wheels on a soft floor, up in a lift to the fifth level.
We had arrived at room 546.
I stared in disbelief. It was a mens ward!
The orderly pointed to the description on my transfer sheet “Masculino”
“What do you think these are,” I asked pointing to the protrusions on my chest, “oranges?”

Ann’s first memoir was twenty-seven years in the making before being published in 2014. Into Africa with 3 kids, 13 crates and a husband has been an Amazon No 1 Bestseller in its category several times and in 2016 won the Silver Award in the UK’s Wishing Shelf Book Awards. The sequel More Into Africa with 3 kids, some dogs and a husband was published in 2016 and has also hit Amazon’s No 1 spot in its category numerous times. The third book in the series is on its way.
With all the silly things that happen to this family there are many more books to come.
