Fun Day Monday

Mondays are the busiest day of the week here as we enter another week of people coming and going, work, play and ‘school’.

Today was no different, but I thought I would give you a picture diary of our morning. I must admit by the time I actually put lunch on the table it was 2pm but I didn’t have Nana today and the kids were far more interested in escaping from the garden which means I end up being on a hunt for them.

So here we go!

Watching William use the power hose; ideas are forming!

Having changed to be power hosed, William had to go and load the truck so off they all went to watch.

I don’t have a picture of them all riding in the truck as it was driven into position. Heads poking out of the man hole on the roof.

The day didn’t end there, of course.

What I don’t have pictures of are our impromptu visitors in the afternoon. The patron of Sabre is Kwame Nkrumah-Acheampong who is Ghana’s only Olympian down hill skier and took part in the last winter olympics, under the name The Snow Leopard. He, his wife and children stopped by as they were passing. It was great to see them and we hope to go and visit them in Tema (near Accra). They used to live in the UK so we had a great chat about Ghana and the frustrations we encounter!

That only left a few hours of afternoon for the children to get up to mischief including collecting toads in a bucket (I&C), catching chickens and chucking them into their pen (I), going to invade the Lego kept in the office (F&B), playing board games (all) and stringing beads (all).

What a great first day back at ‘school’!

And Finally:
My fashion forward daughter? Yesterday’s delight – woollen tights and a long sleeved shirt – in 30 + degree heat!
