Wednesday – by Eve and Becky

Today was difficult for some of us as the whole group was tired and we hit a ‘middle of the week’ wall. But we still had a brilliant time and felt that we made a difference

Weather was cooler, but turned hotter in the afternoon. We’re still adjusting to the heat, and this adds to the tired feelings.

Went to the shop afterwards to get snacks and drinks – everyone was excited!

For dinner we had pasta and rice, everyone really enjoyed it and most of us had seconds

Everyone is becoming closer, we all work well together as a team.

Eve apparently is the mother of the group: she is taking care of everyone and kindly doing everyone’s washing!

Looking forward to receiving lots of comments from you all (hint hint!)
