Day 4: Bananagrams

Hi everyone back home!

Today was our 2nd working day in Malawi, which included painting a loo while a fierce football match was taking place. The sun has been shining and spirits were high. 

The day began with Flick and Dom waking at 6 to help with breakfast and collect water - with the help of Callum. It was down to today's leaders - Amy and Callum to deligate roles. 

One of today's highlights today had to be the spaghetti lunch (which was rather unsuccessful on Monday night when it was down to us to make essentially the same thing!)

Amy's army of adorable children only grew bigger - following yesterday's game of ring-a-ring-a-roses. We have also discovered our obsession with 'bananagrams', although our Inspire leader, Aimee, beats us every time.

Although it was not all fun and games as we all had the 'pleasure' of painting the interior of the long drops.  But not all down in the dumps as our poo tally chart has gone from strength to strength.

Currently, Shona and JC are involved in a match of our favourite game bananagrams, while Maisy, Callum's,  Lily and Pip are hard at work in the kitchen cooking up tonight's meal. Today was also a first for some as they attempted to wash their clothes - some need a little more practice than others!!

We miss you all but are very much enjoying our time in this amazing place. We are learning so much from this experience.

P.s Please don't forget to comment!

Love,

Ellie & Flick

  3. Glad to hear the weather has picked up, at least Erin won't need her bin bag any more. It was fab to see you laying bricks Amy. All those months watching Adam and Jus has paid off. Dad says he hopes you put them the right way up, he knows how much you like perfection�� I bet you are in your element surrounded by children. We miss you but really enjoy the daily blog. Keep up the good work, very proud of all the Hurst gang xxxx
