Hot off the Press ....
Not really hot off the press at all, but we did just receive a section of the Sunday Telegragh and read the big news .... William and Kate are engaged!!! The paper was dated November 21st and yes, it took this long to get here. Also in the parcel was a birthday present for Amisadai (for Dec. 30th) so she was more than delighted to have another birthday! Love surprises!
As I write, Tim and his parents are in Dar es Salaam. Tim will be taking his mum and dad to the airport first thing tomorrow morning and then catching the bus home. It has been wonderful having another "grandparent" visit! We have had a great time catching up on time together and also on news from home. Thank you so much to those of you who sent cards and treats with them! It is so lovely to feel we are not forgotten! Mum and Dad treated us to two nights in Ruaha National Park which was fantastic! Check out the girls' blog to get the list of animals we saw! We were very pleased to find lions and thrilled with the hungry hippos right outside our banda in the night! The Lodge itself was amazing. We didn't actually need to go driving about, as the animals all came to us, sitting comfortably on the verandah!
Watching it all happen from the verandah
She was a little further away from the Lodge!
Now we are preparing for our move to Magozi next Saturday. Tim is planning the training days, I am working on my bit on nutrition and hygiene. We are compiling lists and accumulating piles of things to take with us. Milk powder, flour, oil, beans, suncream, deet ....
