Various Happenings

Sympathy please - two days ago I was bitten by a bee, owww! Now my leg is still inflamed and red and sore so I think I will pop into the chemist tomorrow. The most annoying part of the event was that the bee had been flying around for a while and I had been tempted to kill it but decided to leave it in peace. Never again! Death to all bees is now my new slogan, although I am now running a mile on sight of one!

Bertie's aunt has come to stay, allegedly for a few days but it looks like it will be far longer...she is a great talker and if you sit down for a minute you risk being there an hour. Except with me, as she prefers creole so our conversation doesn't go very far!

Meanwhile, our world has collapsed as Bertie's mum has gone off to her native island of Marie-Galante for a few days and her presence is sorely missed. The house really does cease to function without her! Or rather, she is the only one able to provide meals to his dad's requirements! We have tried a couple of meals but anything eaten was only out of desperation! Neither does he do anything in the house, so all the washing up etc has fallen to us.

Today we took the plunge and cleaned out the fridge. I won't shock you with the details of all we found within. Suffice to say you can now tell what colour it is. One interesting discovery was a bag of batteries. On questioning, Bertie said it came from the myth that if you leave them in the fridge they recharge! Hmmm...

Baby JoJo is making every effort to roll over. He can get onto his tummy in his cot, but then gets stuck and can't get back again. So cute!

My fault, the comment was from your papa not mama.

Yes, life was significantly easier as a carefree teenager in senegal! Amazing to think it was hotter than this though...

I'm just off to pop my batteries in the freezer - that might be even quicker...
