Busy Day ….. Sleepless Night

Life here can be hectic. After a great night on Friday at the Charity Quiz (We so nearly won but we’re pipped by one point!), I was hardly home yesterday. The day begun with a trip to see Saturday school at 10am. An hour there and a wander through the grounds above the school, was followed by a visit to the birding house An 12noon for their Open Day and a chance to meet their parents. After a shared meal it was off to rejoin the rest of the family who were going to a shared barbecue at 2pm. There we stayed chatting and eating until 7:30 when we crossed the road to the Teacher Flats to celebrate a colleagues birthday on the roof. Another couple of ours of chat and celebration before returning home at 10pm a full 12 hours out. Great fun but I’m not sure I’d cope if every Saturday was full on like that!

Post Script
Returning to the compound we found that nearby there was a Disco /Party blaring out loud music and thumping base. Sadly this continued through the night only stopped at 8am by the scheduled Power Cut. Rarely have I been so grateful for the loss of electricity.

The Morning After!

So here we are the morning after the night of Bex Unbirthday Bash /Sleepover. A great evening had by the girls who will not be able to celebrate the real birthday in November. Of course great fun brings with it the devastation of 15 people (us included) in a suburban semi!20140713-100228-36148729.jpg
