We made bricks today. Well, i made one brick. But in total we made bricks.. plural! The locals where hoeing foundations while we finished the bricks and when we finally finished and headed over we got bossed about and the mood headed a bit southwards for some people, as they just talked about you and laughed. After a quick chat with Stevie though that was all sorted!
For some reason i was in THEE grumpiest mood ever this morning, like i was about to cry in frustration - manners. It's common sense in Britain but lacks in Kenya, something i will soon become accustom to no doubt but it will take some work! I just need some pleases and thank you's.. every little helps eh? haha.
We also moved all the bricks, in one of the classrooms, that had been drying for some time and Stevie asked us to carry out tarpaulin and some sacks to weigh it down so it wouldn't blow away when covering the bricks outside. The biggest. Ugliest. Hairiest. looking spider was on Katie's sack and i wanted to vomit in fear. It just sat there as if it was dead and the fear disappeared.. until SOMEONE hit it with a spade and it came running off in my direction... they have remained nameless for fear of death.
The naughty elephants tried to escape the electric fence into the village last night and because of this they stood on the water pipes ad burst it so no water got to the camp this morning, so poor wee Stevie had to work through his lunch break straight after he had helped us on the projects WE were knackered from and fix the pipe.. poor guy! What a legend.
Bryony and i got on the second bus to the tree nursery, got there, then about 10 minutes later got back on the bus to camp to get water to water the plants, where we wasted an hour chatting to each other and the staff back at camp then came back to the nursery and did fuck all again. YIPEEEE!
Came back and planned our lesson for tomorrows class at the primary school, it got half way through the second set of algebraic equations and i remembered why i USED to enjoy maths but always had lots of doodles in my jotter... it's boring, but basically quite easy... hence the boring-ness. I'm just to brainy for my own good is what i'm trying to say! haha. Lauren, Keira and I managed it though and tomorrow should be a breeze.. if not, i'm used to gales in Scotland anyways !
Stevie tried to explain how you should explain parts of the vagina to the other group in which they would teach the other class Sex Ed... this was all very useful except that he was pointing to a diagram of a penis! HILARIOUS.
Bryony and i sat chatting in my tent for aaaages, totally unplanned, i was just getting changed and we both couldnt be bothered going back up to the hut, so bloody funny though! Red balloons anyone?
"we have discussed that if the team was a body, you would be the heart that keeps it all going"
