Tickets, Mapoch and Baby Naming

09 Jan

1  We’ve booked our flights to Senegal for Daniel and Ami’s wedding!

2  Fabulous singing with the Inglehearts tonight and a super offer from the husband of a choir member. His firm have offered to sponsor the sending to Mapoch of all the balls I’ve collected from friends. I’ve been collecting balls from deodorant roll-ons and plastic rolls from printers since Mr S and I did our volunteering in 2007 (building a classroom) and sending them all out to the Gogos (Grannies) who bead them into the most beautiful decorations.

Beadwork by the Gogos of Mapoch, S.A.

This year no new volunteers were able to take them out for me as people have done in the past and they were going to cost about £90 to post! Consequently I only sent a few and the lovely people who’ve been collecting were very disappointed. Thanks to P, it seems as if all the rest might be able to be sent – brilliant!

3  I’ve been booked for a Baby Naming Ceremony in July! Delighted! They are such lovely individual ceremonies to do.
