Moving day (14/06/14) it was lovely today we were back and forth across the road carrying buckets, baskets, clothes, mosquito nets ect and lots of our neighbours helped give us a hand. Our first night in the new house, me and Imogen made a lentil, eggplant, tomato, peas, sweet potato curry. It sounds grim but it was so nice! Best curry we have made so far.
10 metres away from our house there is an evangelical church (fantastic for trying to have a lie in on Sundays)
The 'shower' is in the garden which is v strange. I am always looking out for a black face to appear from the small gap in the wall. We use a makeshift shower curtain out of the empty maize bags which just about covers me naked bod!
It's so nice having neighbours, in the old house we had a huge garden and it was all in a compound but here the kids come to the window "Jasmine, ku funa mpira panja" ( I want to play ball outside) it's cute for now but depending on how often they come knocking it won't for much longer haha. The feeding centre backs on to our house so I think the kids will be my alarm in the morning from now on.
There's 2 bedrooms a living room and a kitchen in this house, it's a lot smaller than the other one but it's more homely! I'm sharing a room with Anne which will be interesting because she's a messy cow hehe. It's becoming normal for the neighbours to wonder in and out of our house asking for Lego, wanting to play and I even treated one of our neighbours to a pedicure! Feeling like part of the neighbourhood already, it will be a shame to leave in August (60 days!).
