I am still without my camera! It will be ready for me to pick up on Friday, so they say, but this is Africa, so I am not holding my breath! My desk is bare, not anything creative in sight, because I have had a week from hell. We are building a 'stoep' (SA readers, help me describe this in English please) the closest I could come up with is a verandah or a patio, but neither is actually very descriptive.
Last Saturday they broke windows out in two rooms to be replaced with wooden sliding doors, absolutely gorgeous, but no glass in the doors meant that my house has been freezing.
At school we have been so busy my head is spinning. first there was our annual blanket Mass on Ascension day. Our girls collected bandanas after bandana day in October last year (you know, the beautifully colourful ones they sell in aid of cancer research), and then one of the moms sewed them into these fantastic blankets that you see on the photo. We managed to make over a 100 blankets! How awesome is that?
On Tuesday, one of the moms had a heart attack in the school's parking lot and drove into a tree. I had to calm her daughter down and some of the teachers were doing CPR, thank goodness she seems to be OK. A friend's 15 month old baby had to have a brain tumour removed in an 8 hour operation too. She is doing very well, but will still have to have chemo. My friend Cindy is doing well on her chemo.
Yesterday, I took a tumble in class, my knee is severerly bruised (so is my ego! LOL) and I also hit my head on a desk! Then, also yesterday, on the way home from school, I saw a young boy drive his motorbike straight into a car, right in front of me!
So you see, not musch time for creativity.
Have a great week everybody and remember to visit Julia to join in the WOYWW fun. My candy is still open here, so please join in the fun, I will do the draw on 1 Jun.
