Dinner Anyone?

With luck this will be my first photo upload. Thought you might like the look of this proud, stalking fellow, heading for a drink from our little pond.

Belated news from the farm

I've got belated news and pictures from the farm in New Kasama. We had a bit of rain there as you can see from the earlier posting, not enough to spoil the golf but plenty for growing vegetables.

Dad's pointing at some okra here...


...but mostly corn (Greffen looking proud there)...


...and more corn! There'll certainly be no risk of running out of nshima. There's also a chicken coop now

...although not too many eggs yet. Meanwhile work continues on the extension.

This is the inside of the roof with the conduits that the electricity wires will be passed through later. Elsewhere the builders are cutting out thin strips of the walls to lay other conduits before everything can be plastered.

I hear that that Mum was away for New Year but that Ba Clement organised a party in the extension. They put down straw mats on the floor, got out benches and foldable chairs and fired up a brai.

Papa's got a brand new floor

...and he laid it all himself (OldBould Jnr that is)

Newsflash! Chil is a British citizen...

Chil met the Mayor of Haringey who conferred British citizenship upon her, the passport will be another couple of weeks...

...and now Chil's got a new 'Come on England' style haircut to go with it!

I had a fantastic time in Nairobi with the charity Chain of Hope. I spent a couple of days exploring Nairobi on my own, sitting by the pool and playing golf, then the rest of the team arrived, it was pretty much all work after that, but still great. I won't put all of the pictures here as there are quite a lot of them but you can see some if you click here.
