Blog for Thursday 16th May 2024


Oh dear! I shot out of bed thinking I had overslept but it was only just before four o’clock. Whew! Thank goodness!

Even Shamara meowed her gratitude that I was up early.

I had my Quiet Time and then did my Bible study for the day. I also went over the lessons I would be teaching later today at school and checked that I had the items needed for the games at the end of the lessons. All good!

I did some washing and hung it out to dry seeing there did not look as if we would be getting any more rain today. Wonderful!

We will just have the curried mince and brown rice with buttered bread and chutney again tonight. I love the curry mixes that I bought in South Africa in October 2023. Where we lived in South Africa (Kwa Zulu Natal) has the largest Indian population outside India, and so their spices and curry powders are easily available out there.

I had a lovely day at school today and all the children were well-behaved too. Not that they are normally badly behaved, they are not, but sometimes their energy cannot be contained, and it overflows electrifying the room!
