Crocs, No Socks

Talking about donations, here's another one.
900 pairs of shoes. Kiddies' Crocs, to be precise.
And here's Susanna. Having just collected boxes of them.
Enough to pack the inside of the car. And need the roof rack too.
The shoes have now been distributed all over the country.
A treat for bare feet!

I don't think a single day goes by without a donor calling here.
They bring food, diapers/nappies, medicines, clothes, toys, cash.
Handling the donations in kind is almost a full time job.
We have to keep a container out back for temporary storage.
And Susanna is the undisputed Queen of the Container.
But we also get cheques from time to time.
Like this recent one from Pharmaceutical Product Development.
PPD's Jackline is on the far left and Daveline is on the far right.
Sandwiched between them are Clive, Mary, our Jaqui and me.
All trying to get our hands on the money!

Boxing Day Blessings

Clive & Mary invited us to Boxing Day lunch yesterday.
Ham and all the trimmings at Beckenham Palace. Delicious!
I didn't take a photo. Sorry. But here's one I made earlier.
Well, to be honest, that Susanna made earlier.
That's her hand on the knife.
So I better watch my step!

Spectator Or Spectacle?

But for some of the other visitors to the Safari Walk ...
Neesee & Harry were the main spectacle.
These school children, on a trip to Nairobi from rural Kenya,
crowded round the two girls as if they were celebrities.
Took them a while to get used to being the centre of attention.
Not like their Auntie Lauren, eh?
