We woke early so Meg could shower, especially for.....the school photo!! I woke up and looked in the mirror...unfortunately I had slept with wet hair, and it was a state!! So we both had to shower, but with one towel only, due to yesterdays flood, Meg kindly used her towel to soak up the river running through the penthouse!!
All sorted we headed for breakie, today, two peices of bread, one with jam the other with butter. Our new friend Suzanne came to sit with us and she said, (in American accent if you with to get into our shoes) 'Me and Colin, wanted to know if you wanted to come for supper this weekend?'..........SAY WHAT???? We imediatly jumped at the chance, as yesterday they informed us that they have a cook in their household. Get in there! I think we can officially say we have 2 friends now!
Normal day of lessons, I had my first bit of child death stories, and one boy was absent yesterday cause his cousin (i think) went into sinking sand and died. I was shocked and horrified by the story, the teacher how ever told the boy, 'I am sorry, but no excuses your homework needs to be handed in by sundasy still.' End of!!
So at 10.15am we headed out to the assemberly hall, to have a talk from Medin, the principle. We all, well not me and meg, sang the Nepalese anthem, and then medin talked about the school. How it was it's 5th birthday and all...lots of clapping, tra la la, you know the drill.
We were then told the school commity people had decided that they wanted to start school photos this year, and carry it on from now on.....YES!!! So all sheperded outside, in the boiling hot for the photograph. None of this normal English style school photo, no thank you....everyone cram into a tight group and the man took it from a balcony above us all. I think (hope) we will stand out....white faced and lighter coloured hair....we wont be missed!
Everyone back to class.....and yes.....the school had provided every class a MASSIVE cake, with 'happy bithday Ullens' on it. This is the best day by far. CAKE...we got CAKE. Not like home cake, a bit soggy but it will do.
Afternoon spent off, but emerged for snack time....food time! Lucky we did cause then we discovered a teachers photo....hell yeah!! Megs was on the back back bench, she told me my head would be cut off cause I am too tall, so I stood on the floor....still the tallest, but again....you wont miss me. We have decided to print the photo on the front of a t-shirtand get Medin to write a quote no the front, then everyone to sign it...or make loads of them and make a load of money!!
All in all a good day at work! Went and saw our IT friends, who will get us skype. They didn't understand our slang when we said one of them was 'sick'....the cool kind of sick, not actually sick....though he did have a cold, so it made it all VERY confusing!!
Just had our two minuit silence, as it is the 11th november.....but at 11.30 your time....a bit late, but we did it!
ALSO....our american friends, Colin and Suzanne said.....are you ready for this........we will eat roast chicken at their house on Friday....TOMORROW, roast chicken, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah. I pray there is humus and crisps and diet coke and cheeeeese!! But chicken will do perfectly no matter what!
I just seem to write really long blogs, I am sorry....Megs, your turn (though we are out for supper tomorrow (WOOPWOOP) so may not be able to write!)......
