Hi Everyone! Apologies for not posting this last night – but we are having trouble with getting signal sometimes! So we will hopefully do two posts tonight! Pictures aren’t loading at all (frustratingly)! So this is the post from yesterday!
Wag1 pruedogs…Jamie and Brad here!!Hope you are all okay…HAPPPY BIRTHDAY JAN! 🙂
So, today is the first day that Ciaran’s rape alarm hasn’t gone off… it has gone off at every moment… including perfect timing just as we were taking off on the first plane!! Haha
We started the day nice and early at 6am with packing down the tents… let’s just say they all came down a lot quicker than they went up! It was chilly this morning, but soon warmed up!
We then had to try and fit 26 suitcases, 14 team members, Alice and her girls (Ezme & Thoko), along with the driver and his friend for a 7 hour bus journey…. Oh and not forgetting Ezme’s dog Sunshine! Let’s just say we were snug as bugs!! We made the most of the bus journey and made it fun with listening to music, singing, and we both made new friends with Ezme and Thoko… so much so that Thoko fell asleep on Jamie!
The scenery was amazing to look at…which most of us saw… apart from Kitty who missed most of it as she has just been asleep constantly.. haha
When we arrived at Butterfly space, we unpacked the cases, checked into our rooms and got ready for a swim in the lake. We then sorted out the baby clothes and bits that we had been donated and sorted them into individual baskets made by a local HIV Group out of cane. These were then filled with blankets, baby grows, toys and other bits and pieces to be given to mums and their new born babies on the Maternity Ward tomorrow!
We smashed a burger and wedges for dinner and read all your messages out as a group. Mollie wasn’t impressed that Ciaran had the most messages…. looks like she’s got a bit of competition!!
Anyway, we are now off to play ‘Spoons’ ready for a day at the hospital maternity ward and visiting the local disability group!
Hopes all okay with everyone, Boy band signing out.❤️
