Rain has been a recurring topic in the past few blogs. Today was no exception. A lovely sunny start to the day was disrupted by an unexpected and instantaneous hammering of rain in the evening worthy of the tropics. Though Jack took full advantage of this downpour by still having a shower!
The morning began with a fresh portion of papaya and mango, with the usual serving of porridge. Project work was facilitated by Sam Barrett's leadership and Simon's medical surveillance. Social team finished work 15 mins early before break to help with the final preparations for Helena's birthday today. With balloons (that kept popping), stickers, party hats, and mandazis with special chocolate sauce, it was a truly successful party. A colourful card was signed by the whole team, and seeing Helena's smile lifted our spirits for the rest of the day.
In the afternoon, after a game of tope darts, we paired up and gave the children an english lesson with singing and lots of questions. After the lesson the team joined the students in games of netball, football, catch, ans an energetic and colourfuk Macarena (courtesy of Sam Bailey). Lots of pictures were taken, and lots of friendships were made.
The ambiance at dinner was made by Fiona, Dylan and Pieter's scouse accents and a singalong to Megan's playlists, including Ed Sheeran, The Jackson 5 and a bit of Whitney.
Quote of the day Mr Cox; "And then the shower went".
